Jason Singh – Hidden Music of Trees
The Hidden Music of Trees is an augmented reality audio visual outdoor installation that allows audiences to have enhanced nature-based experiences. Audiences will experience music that has been generated entirely by trees through a 3D visual environment using the interface of mobile devices.
Jason Singh is a sound artist, nature beatboxer, producer, DJ, facilitator and performer.
He is a solo artist and collaborator whose creative output spans across a wide range of art forms, music genres and education practices. His work includes sound installations, nature soundscape works, radio shows, sound design and sound explorations using biodata, ceramics, textiles and museum objects. Referred to as “the human sampler” by Cerys Matthews (Radio 6), Singh also vocally recreates birdsong and natural environments. His work has been described as “beautiful, strange, calming music” by nature writer Robert Macfarlane and has also featured on the 2019 BBC Lost Words prom (https://www.withoutwalls.uk.com/programme/the-hidden-music-of-trees/ ) for photo ..
Hidden Music of Trees is a Certain Blacks commission along with Norfolk and Norwich Festival and Timber Festival.
The Ensemble Festival is in partnership with Without Walls who champion and support diverse work and accessibility in the arts
