A micro-sound tour with the artist Matt Davies, sound recordist for ‘Plant Orchestra’.

Listen to the extraordinary secret sounds of plants from the Ballast Seed Garden. Hear clicks, gurgles and more unusual noises as they respond to light and water.

Matt Davies’s work is primary engaged with the act of listening and the exploration of natural composition. Past projects include Piano Loop at Expo Leeds, research residency at Kitev in Oberhausen, Sound Sweep at Spike Island, Bristol, and working in collaboration with Luke Jerram on the Plant Orchestra at the Riga Botanical Gardens, Latvia. Currently his work is featured in the ICA’s Soundworks exhibition and he will be showing at the Schmalfilmtage festival, Dresden in Jan 2013.
