People around the world recorded the sounds of their forests, so that they can escape into nature, while in lockdown or unable to travel. Use this site to chill, meditate or do some digital shinrin-yoku.

This serves as a reminder to grow mroe trees and keep them alive, while we can. Wildfires, governments and corporation are still destroying the forests. 

This project was made possible by Sounds of the Forest. They are collecting the sounds of woodlands and forests from all around the world, creating a growing soundmap bringing together aural tones and textures from the world’s woodlands.

The sounds form an open source library, to be used by anyone to listen to and create from. Selected artists will be responding to the sounds that are gathered, creating music, audio, artwork or something else incredible, to be presented at Timber Festival 2021. It is an annual three-day festival at the heart of the National Forest, Timber celebrates our connection to trees and woodlands through music, art and ideas, taking its inspiration from the transformed landscape of the National Forest in the Midlands.

Sounds of the Forest is supported using public funding by Arts Council England. The second phase of the project is supported by PRS Foundation’s Open Fund for Organisations.
