Enter an immersive soundscape located in Kensington Gardens and hear new music written by 17 composers from the Royal College of Music.
Spanning 190 trees, including 32 unique species, Treephonia invites listeners to engage meaningfully with the trees of Kensington Gardens, while showing the importance of the environment and the threats it faces.
Each composer conducted a close observation of their tree over the course of 10 months – from its leaves, flowers and fruits to its complex root systems. They listened to and conversed with their tree and studied its interaction with surrounding trees. Reflecting the harmonious and symbiotic coexistence of the many trees of Kensington Gardens, Treephonia explores not only the unique voice of each tree, but how they vocalise together.
