On July 20th, Saturday from 2pm-4pm, join the BGML for Recital with a Forest, a multispecies sound art performance by the Branching Songs Ensemble: Julie Andreyev, Giorgio Magnanensi, Keira Madsen, Myles Feltenberger, and Simon Overstall.

Recital With a Forest is a site-specific multispecies sound art performance by the Branching Songs Ensemble that uses land-based processes involving trees and forests.

The Ensemble’s instruments are made of land-based materials (cast-offs from local trees, found feathers, stones and shells) combined with contact mics, biosensors, and computer software.

The participating trees are carefully wrapped with Ribbon Tree fabric, and the performance takes place against a backdrop of Listening to the Forest gratitude blanket by Métis artist Lara Felsing. The Ensemble uses techniques of listening and responding as a sonic weaving of human touch, tree acoustics and forest liveliness.

Come and listen within the beautiful and calming forest of Xwayxway (Stanley Park).

The event includes a discussion about the project, with an optional Q&A and demo opportunity for audience members to interact with the instruments and artwork.
