Sounds of the Forest: Soundmap charts aural tones and textures from the world’s forest and woodlands

The first ever forest soundmap of the world is bringing together aural tones and textures from the world’s woodlands.

Devised by the UK’s Timber Festival, Sounds of the Forest is an online map collecting the sounds of woodlands and forests from all around the world.

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.

Timber Festival is calling on contributions to the sound map from anyone from around the world. Contributors to the map are invited to visit their local forest or woodland, and record one minute of the sounds that they hear.
