Project: Living Symphonies

A piece of music that grows in the same way as a forest ecosystem.

by Daniel Jones and James Bulley

Living Symphonies (2014) is a musical composition that grows in the same way as a forest ecosystem. Portraying the thriving activity of the forest's wildlife, plants and atmospheric conditions, it creates an ever-changing symphony heard amongst the forest itself.

Composed and realised by James Bulley and Daniel Jones, Living Symphonies took place across four of England's forests during summer 2014. It was commissioned by Forestry Commission England and Sound And Music, with support from Arts Council England.
