THE SINGING, RINGING TREE


Our lives are made up of sights and sounds and smells, and we shall grasp them all before reality of life sets in.






The Singing Ringing Tree, is a wind powered sound sculpture that resembles a tree set in the landscape of the Pennine hill range that overlooks Burnley, in Lancashire, England.



The Singing, Ringing Tree can be heard (best) here and also from heard here.  Photos of it as well.

I like sound sculptures, I have encountered a few recently and they are just fascinating! Is this one permanent?

Jenny, I'm not sure, I haven't read anything about it being short lived. It was completed in 2006 so it's been up for a while already.
