Summer of Sound – Listening Horns

I’m thrilled to be showing a number of outdoor installation works at Summer of Sound at Wakehurst, Kew’s wild botanical Garden in West Sussex. After making a number of site visits to explore the waterways and make hydrophone recordings, I set up a series of listening horns that playback the underwater sound recordings at the wetlands and the bog garden. I was also very pleased to have created a solar powered sound system for this… here are some pictures and a short soundscape created from the underwater sounds of Wakehurst.  The Listening Horns are a development of a commission created for Cryptic 2019 for ‘Below the Blanket’ in 2019.
