Forest Symphony by Ryuichi Sakamoto

“Imagine being able to watch and listen to the process of photosynthesis. After the massive earthquake that shook Japan in
2011, Ryuichi Sakamoto wanted to draw attention to the importance of our trees and forests, so he conceived a way for
humans to do just that. The result of his work is an art installation, created alongside YCAM Interlab, called Forest
Symphony, which Sakamoto created by placing specially-developed sensors on trees around the globe that now transmit
the changing sounds of forests to a room in Japan.”

“Trees convert sunlight to energy through photosynthesis, meaning they are a genius at capturing electromagnetic waves. I want to turn that nature’s cycle into music.” — Sakamoto
