The Bristol Ensemble - 'Treesong'

The Bristol Ensemble - 'Treesong'

A new work by William Goodchild based on the ‘song‘ of a tree captured in a project run on Bristol‘s Durdham Downs as part of the city‘s year as European Green Capital, with the support of the PRS for Music Foundation. Every movement from a 150-year-old beech tree was picked up by an array for harp-like sensors installed under the tree from 1st to 4th October. The ethereal and haunting ‘music‘ from the tree forms the basis for Goodchild‘s new work which was premiered at this concert.
