Songs for treeis an ode to our planet's endangered old-growth forests. The project aims to draw attention to the interconnectedness between humans and the environment, to foster a sense of responsibility and reciprocity with the more-than-human world, and suggest ways in which we might find connectedness/together-ness with the natural world.
Songs for tree includes a collection of scores that will be available for download. These pieces encourage play outdoors with forests and trees and asks participants to attune their own rhythms, tones and textures to those of the more-than-human world. Stay tuned for details regarding workshops and pop-up performances.
An audio-video performance-installation will highlight the giant trees, lush overstory and awe-inspiring old-growth forests on Vancouver Island, Canada.
