Voice of Trees brings the voice of poets in the landscape using the sound archive Poetry Sound Library.
What if we could find in every city a "Museum of sounds" in the landscape where people could immerse themselves in some of the most inspiring work of sound artists from the present and past?
I have started to create sound walks dedicated to the installation of some of my favorite sound artists (see the page MUSEUM OF SOUNDS for more info).
In Amsterdam, in the beautiful Sarphatipark, one of nicest parks in town according to many, I have created a sound walk that is a tribute to American sound artist David Schafer . In the blue areas (see map) people in Amsterdam can now enjoy again his sound installation "The Intruder/De Indringer" (2004).
David Schafer is a visual artist who works in multiple forms of production, including sculpture, sound, performance, and works on paper. His work is concerned with the structure, translation, and intelligibility of language, and the combining of sculpture, sound, and text. His discursive projects embody subjects from cultural memory that are both theoretical and idiosyncratic.
Los Angeles, CA.
In 2004 The Intruder/De Indringer was in Middelburg. Mounted on the exterior of the 15th century deVleeshal was a large PA speaker-horn that emitted in both Dutch and English a short Dutch children's story approximately 10 minutes long. The story was sounded once a day after the 1:15 pm bells at a volume that could be heard just out of the public square that the deVleeshal faces. A female voiceover from Los Angeles read the English version, and a male Dutch voiceover read the Dutch version. The story is from a book by Piet Prins, a Dutch author, and the story deals with the subject of oppression and ethics during the Reformation within a typical narrative structure. On the interior exhibition space of deVleeshal there were two other works. One a freestanding medium sized sculpture fabricated of small aluminum I-beams bolted and riveted together and whose orientation and composition recall a late modernist formalist style of expression. The third element was a wall-mounted digital C-print whose image derived from the sculpture itself as it is modeled in a 3D comic book style. The fourth element of the project involved an 18" x 24" poster that used a double image of the deVleeshal tower. The poster was put up around the town of Middelburg as part of the exhibition.

The sound installation "Voice of Trees" is in the Sahara Desert to bring attention to the Sahara Desert significant growth over the past century. Climate change is largely to blame and by geolocating poems and rain in the desert we are bringing the sound of rain and trees where there is only desert.
The installation consists of Love Poems dedicated to trees and rain.
"Analysing data collected since 1923, a research team examined the different factors that contributed to changes in rainfall in the Sahara region.
They found the desert, already around the size of the US, had expanded by about 10 per cent over the period covered by this data.
These results have implications for those living in the border region of the Sahara known as the Sahel, but the scientists noted that climate change-driven desertification is not a phenomenon unique to the Sahara.
Their results revealed a combination of natural climate cycles and human-caused climate change that have caused this effect over the past century – with the latter accounting for around a third of the increase.
The study was published in the Journal of Climate.
The trends in Africa of hot summers getting hotter and rainy seasons drying out are linked with factors that include increasing greenhouse gases and aerosols in the atmosphere," said Dr Ming Cai, a programme director at the National Science Foundation, which funded the research."
A Peschiera Borromeo sei donne si oppongono alla decisione del Comune di abbattere 240 alberi (dei pioppi cipressini) per non meglio precisati motivi di pericolosità. Alla perizia comunale rispondono con la contro perizia dell'agronomo di fama internazionale Daniele Zanzi che parla di alberi preziosi da tenere in vita.
Da oggi, l'installazione "La Voce degli Alberi" raggiunge Via Galvani e, nei punti indicati nella mappa (vedi foto), camminando lungo il viale si potranno ascoltare le voci di Montale, Ungaretti, Pasolini, Merini, Rosselli, Roversi e altri poeti del posto come Benedetta Murachelli e Simonetta Favari. Speriamo così, con la poesia, di aiutarle a fermare le motoseghe. Speriamo nel dialogo, importante in un momento cruciale come questo, quando si rischia di fare errori irreparabili.
Voice of trees with two sound installation is now in the gardens around Tate Modern where the Silver Birches grow.
"Designed by the leading Swiss landscape architect Dieter Kienast (1945-1998) and where completed in time for Tate Modern’s opening in 2000. His landscape designs have a simple lyrical quality. By reducing his designs to a few essential elements and principles, Kienast plays with opposing factors such as the natural and the artificial, order and chaos."
