what the tree heard
The idea of this installation comes from an attempt to comprehend or live through something larger than we can embrace with our minds through sound. In the case of this installation it is a relatively short period of time of one day.
The initial recording comes from the ‘perspective’ of a tree in the quadrangle where the installation is located, as if it has heard and registered all the sounds that were made in or around the quadrangle like registers its own life through its rings.
This space presents interest because of its own ‘micro-climate’: it seems detached from the rest of the university, living its own very quiet sonic life with occasional interruptions coming in from beyond its walls.
