The Forest is the third in the five-part echo::system series of live performance installations that translate complex ecological systems into unique art events. The Forest takes sound as the compositional starting point for imagining this installation. A forest, often a dense and noisy home to many creatures, offers an opportunity for an orchestral and architectural approach for sound design and linking narrative.
The forest is currently in development and more information will be posted soon.
