Bath Yard,

We’re incredibly excited to launch Sounds of the Forest, a new mass participation audio project, collecting the sounds of woodlands and forests from all around the world. We really want to encourage everyone to spend more time outdoors – whilst observing social distancing and staying safe – to help with physical and mental health during this time. Therefore, we would greatly appreciate your help to spread the news so as many people as possible around the world get involved.

Help the National Forest’s Timber Festival create the first ever forest soundmap of the world! Following the postponement of Timber 2020, they are inviting people from across the globe to contribute to a different kind of gathering with the launch of Sounds of the Forest, an exciting new mass participation audio project.

Thanks to the support of Arts Council England, Timber can continue to connect people with trees this year by collecting the sounds of woodlands and forests from all around the world to create a beautiful soundmap bringing together aural tones and textures from the world’s woodlands. They are inviting people to visit their local forest or woodland and record one minute of the sounds they hear. Full details of how to send in sounds, including technical advice for how to get the best quality recording from a phone are on the website.
