Music Forest takes a form of a collaborative instrument that inspires people to create music with the intensity of movement and touch.
Eighteen posts with different sounds form a unique sound landscape and influence the context of the place in which it stands.
The artwork becomes an excuse for the artists to break the daily rhythm and pace of the city by inviting the public into the imaginary world of Music Forest. The work encourages a moment to pause and to form an orchestra together with others.
The forest is both a reference to the spatiality of the work and the idea that you can get away from the monotone, the routine and the individualism of the city. It is a forest in which every tree has its own sound, but only together they can make a concert.
Jonas Vorwerk and Chantal Vos started collaborating in 2016. Together they integrate technology, light, sound, movement, form and space within the sociocultural context in interactive installations. The installation Music Forest is the first result of that joint effort.
