Together We Can – Brunel University Sonic Garden @ Chelsea Flower Show

The music department at Brunel University London are involved with a cool project, that I’m lucky enough to be helping out on. Colin Riley and Carl Faia are leading us in a collaborating with the Papworth Trust called Together We Can – a sonic garden that’s being presented at the Chelsea Flower Show next month, with Dame Evelyn Glennie joining us for a one-off performance at the show. 
We’re using hydrophones, contact microphones, 10-channel sound, and Max/MSP to create a long-form installation. This weekend we’re off to Lincolnshire to test our work on a prototype of the garden. I’ll be filming it all, and sharing some video next week.

The team is:
•Colin Riley
•Carl Faia
•Phil Maguire
•Ardeshir Mostajeran
•Eleanor Brooks
•Dan Christović
•Graeme Shaw
•Matt Collins
•Reuben Abbott
