The Place Between

As part of IF: Milton Keynes International Festival, artist Rebecca Louise Law created The Place Between - an immersive installation using hundreds of garlands of dried flowers hanging in Middleton Hall centre:mk. As part of the experience sound artist Jason Singh produced an incredible soundscape. The soundscape was created using sensors attached to a wide range of plants and trees from across Milton Keynes. 

On Jason’s quest to discover interesting people and plant sounds he visited the green roof at the YMCA and met with some of the residents. 

It's fair to say the residents were pretty astonished by Jason’s work. While on the roof he hooked up his sensors to an innocent-looking cabbage. No one was expecting the haunting ethereal sounds that emerged. What a great way to make a connection with a living thing and realise it has energy. The YMCA has some of its own budding music producers and makers and Jason soon got chatting to TJ about where his inspiration for making music comes from.
