The Hidden Music of Trees

The Hidden Music of Trees
Saturday 20th & Sunday 21st April, 11am - 4:30pm.
Monday 22nd April, 9am - 12pm.

The Hidden Music of Trees is an augmented reality outdoor installation where you can experience unique soundscapes generated entirely by trees through the interface of mobile phones and a free downloadable app called Artivive.

Each immersive soundscape is created by converting electrical activity from within the tree into music using a range of music technologies. 

This experience will be available throughout the day from 11am on Saturday 20th April until midday on Monday 22nd April, there is no requirement to book in advance. We suggest downloading Artivive from your app store.

Part of What on Earth?! a series of fun, creative, and engaging activities, performances, and workshops taking place on Keele Campus (and beyond) in the lead to Earth Day 2024. Developed in partnership with the amazing Appetite and fantastic partners from Keele Campus you can spend your visit absorbed in the world around you with lots to see and do. More information on the activities planned for the weekend can be found here: What on Earth?!
