Hollow Tree, Sergiyev Posad, Russia on 11th March 2011 – by Vladimir Kryuchev

“There’s an old tree near the railroad in Sergiyev Posad. It seems to be still alive but there are lots of hollows and cracks running through the bark. It sways noticeably in the wind. On one winter day I put the microphones into those cracks, and since then each listen brings a feeling as if this is what the insects living inside could hear… This is a humbling listen suggesting that we are part of the world, not the masters of it.”
