Biophony – Uplands

‘Biophony’ was launched by Community Music Wales in the days leading up to Wales Nature Week

This exciting participatory project brings together ecology issues, biodiversity awareness and music composition.

‘Biophony’ will create new pieces of music by working with residents local in distinct topographical areas across Wales including: rivers, sea & coast, woodlands & uplands.

The next stage of ‘Biophony’ will take place in the Brecon Beacons and will consist of a talk and exploration walk by Brecon Beacons National Park. This will be followed by music composition workshops in National Park Visitors Centre in Libanus.

You will work towards writing new music based on data collection and inspiration from the local environment. The final day will culminate in a performance and/or recording.


Funded by Arts Council Wales, ‘Biophony’, follow’s on from last year’s research & development.
