CÂN Y COED: Rainforest Symphony
Hearing impaired environmental sound artist Cheryl Beer repurposes hearing aid and sensitive biomedical sound technology to give the rainforests of Wales a voice.
The artist’s work involves Welsh and English spoken word with subtitles, as well as British Sign Language.
In addition, Beer’s Sensory Solutions video deconstructs the notion that sound is a hearing-only experience, showing easy ways to experience the Rainforest Symphony through vibration, light, sight and touch.
Beer also shares her research in progress with regard to exploring sound through movement and colour.
Reuniting fragile enclaves that were once woven together beneath the soil, CÂN Y COED: Rainforest Symphony is led by the vascular systems of ancient trees, ferns and moss, collated by repurposing hearing aid and sensitive biomedical sound technology.
This empowers nature, picking out a voice from beneath the bark, where every note is led by the rainforests themselves.
