The sound of a woodland from the perspective of early blossoming plants in Bern, Switzerland on 5th April 2020 – by This Wachter

“I attached my binaural earphone microphones to a hat, on the ground of the forest, to get the sound that blooming plants would hear (if they had ears like us). Bees and bumblebees fly around hollow roots, wood anemone and cowslips. Birds like the woodpecker or the chiffchaff are in the trees that are still leafless – which allows light and warmth to reach the ground. In the background there are sometimes the voices of people that are enjoying the spring and fresh air in the time of social distancing.”
