Sonic Forest

Charlotte, USA

An Urban Musical Forest

“Sonic Forest” is a multi-sensory, interactive installation that is part of Christopher Janney’s “Urban Musical Instruments” series. Sonic Forest is composed of 16 “trees” (columns 8-ft. tall by 10-in. in diameter) each containing audio speakers, lights and photo-electric sensors. Touching the electronic trees triggers a series of events – from an original score of melodic tones, environmental sounds, and spoken or whispered expressions to an ever-changing color palette of LED lights. Everyone who walks through the “forest” calls up their own musical oasis.

The entire installation sounds the time of day each hour. A “ghost in the machine” triggers the installation at random moments, and the forest will “wake up” for short intervals when no one has passed through it.
