ALYSSA MOXLEY & ANASTASIA DOUKA /
ALYSSA MOXLEY: COMPOSER/SOUND ARTIST ANASTASIA DOUKA: VISUAL ARTIST
In "Forest of Sound", our young visitors are invited to contemplate the sounds of the natural world and of the city beneath sculptural trees which, inspired by the oracle of Dodona, are hung with various sounding objects: fruit, papier mâché leaves and everyday objects.
Their interaction with these objects allows field recordings gathered from diverse environments around the world (insects harmonizing, birds calling, leaves rustling, streams babbling, car horns pipping, passers-by talking, dogs barking, bells ringing etc.) to be transformed into music.
Following a musical performance by the artists, children and parents will be invited to play and create sound worlds for themselves.
