The Duet of the SoArWing

David Clarke: Duet of the SoArWing:  Audio soundscape: 12 minutes


Timber: tools, heat and sophisticated materials to replace steel, plastic and glass. Trees: a million leaves harnessing the quantum to make sugar from the sun. Forest: the unfathomable complexity of systems chemistry; life. Critical times. As the chainsaw splutters into life, so the tree soars to its own song. A duet. The complex music of nature dancing with the guttural noise of machine. A duel that leaves no victors. Act I: The Song of the Saw. Act II: The Song of the Soar. Act III: The Duet.
