Present woods (if trees have ears)
Jonsson, Robin

A choreographic sound-performance.

“If a tree falls but no-one is there to hear it, will it still make a sound?”

The work of Murray Schafer and others in the 60’s lead to the founding of the discipline acoustic ecology. Within it they study mankind and its relationship to its surroundings, mediated through sound. Robin Jonsson is inspired by acoustic ecology with its focus on the dynamic relationship inherent in soundscapes around us. He wants to encourage others to listen more carefully to the worlds around them as it will raise an awareness of how we relate to, co-create and are affected by the soundscapes around us, natural and artificial ones. “Present woods” will make you see with your ears as it transforms you and the room to another place and time
