A new acoustic installation in Estonia is giving music lovers the chance to hear the world in a whole new way.
A group of architecture students from the Estonian Academy of Arts have created an installation in a forest that uses giant wooden megaphones to amplify the natural sounds of their environment.
Interior architect Hannes Praks explains:
“We’ll be placing the three megaphones at such a distance and at a suitable angle, so at the centre of the installation, sound feed from all three directions should create a unique merged surround sound effect.”
Valdur Mikita, a writer on Estonian culture as it relates to forestry, described the installation as:
“A place to listen, to browse the audible book of nature – there hasn’t really been a place like that in Estonia before.”
The wooden structures are available for use for a variety of activities, including meditation, shelter for campers, and as performance stages.
