Sonica Botanica: Stories and Sounds from the Gardens

Community Event

20 Feb 2021 to 30 Apr 2021 Daily Event

Immerse yourself in intertwining stories, atmospheric music and mesmerising sounds of the natural environment in Sonica Botanica. Weaving together interviews, field recordings and a musical score, this evocative listening experience responds to collectors’ passions, botanical knowledge, favourite memories, childhood impressions, historical anecdotes and cultural viewpoints. Use your smartphone and headphones to take in these sublime sonic snapshots in this self-guided experience created by Melbourne sound artist Patrick Cronin.

Celebrating special landscapes at Melbourne Gardens, this first episode will respond to the newly designed Arid Garden with the remaining three episodes being released throughout 2021 as part of the Gardens’ 175th milestone program.

Presented as part of the National Sustainable Living Festival 2021.
