The Sounen Project has collaborated with artists and organisations to create some incredible sound installations in some amazing spaces.
From stately homes, to medieval churches, from halloween noises, to the dawn chorus - The Sounen Project has brought unexpected sounds to unusual spaces to critical acclaim.
We are keen to do more work in this area and would love to hear from you if you have an idea that you would like to bring to life with our help.
Recent installations include:
A Congregation of Trees at Holy Trinity Church on Micklegate, York, part of York Bloom! festival 2018 (5th - 8th July 2018).
The wonderful sounds of birdsong and of nature in all it’s glory that accompanied this installation, were captured by Tom Maynard from York based company ‘The Sounen Project’ over 24 hours across Saturday 21st and Sunday 22nd April 2018, at a private wood just outside the city.
They were able to do this with the kind permission of the Crompton family who own, tend and care for the the wood and all of the nature residing within it.
The trees kindly donated by Vertigrow, York were carefully installed in the church and fitted with handmade audio boxes, created by The Sounen Project, housing a motion sensor soundtrack of bird song and sounds from the woods. As visitors to the installation walked into the trees their motion activated euphonious sounds.
“A Congregation Of Trees is an amazing recreation of the natural world in an unexpected setting, it’s a one-off opportunity to explore the Priory Church through new eyes and glory in the sounds of nature as you walk beneath the branches. This installation is typical of the rich and varied ways in which the people of York have been inspired to celebrate the glorious heritage of the Ancient Society of York Florists.” - Lotte Inch (Curator of York Bloom! 2018)
Creating Spooky sounds for The Haunted Mansion at Stansted House, Stansted Park in Hampshire.
"Step into a ghostly time machine, as past residents of the state rooms and servants' quarters are brought back to life. The house will be filled with children, ladies and gentlemen, musicians and chimney sweeps who lived there in times gone by. As day turns to night, the spooks may become less kindly.... and you might just hear some spooky sounds created by The Sounen Project too!"
