In Future Forests is a new exhibition developed by sound artist and composer Dr Robin Price and environmental scientist Dr Francis Pope. The collaboration examines the creative possibilities of mapping nature into music, to ask what music might a future forest make?

Using data collected from weather, plant and soil sensors located in the Birmingham Institute of Forest Research’s woodland facility in Staffordshire, this interactive audio-visual sound installation maps real data streams into a musical score.

 Presented by School of Geography, Earth and Environmental Sciences in partnership with Birmingham Open Media.
