Biodiversity Music Programme featuring: Who’s Woods These Are (Natalia Beylis + Eimear Reidy) / Willie Stewart / Roslyn Steer
The biodiversity seminar at TEST SITE is paired with an evening of three live performances all relating to or developed from a connection to and awareness of nature - each performance, a response to ecology and the natural environment. Natalia Beylis, Eimear Reidy, Roslyn Steer and Willie Stewart will perform live on Kyrl’s Quay.
‘Whose Woods These Are' is an arboreal music & research project by Natalia Beylis & Eimear Reidy. The title of the project 'Whose Woods These Are' is taken from Robert Frost’s 'Stopping by Woods.' The poem entered public domain on midnight Jan 1 and now it is owned by no one/owned by us all collectively. 'The woods are lovely, dark and deep.' Who owns the trees? Who owns the woods? Is it the birds who build homes within the branches? Or the worms who create the nutrients among their roots? Or all creatures whose very lives rely on their oxygen? Imagine a public domain of trees where no one owned them & together we were their guardians. It is our hope that by bringing an audience to the trees, we will encourage people to relish time spent in nature and look after the woodlands. The project was supported by the Arts Council of Ireland, Music Project Award.
Roslyn Steer, a member of Morning Veils, who specialises in “forgotten folk” will present an ambient vocal driven set in response to repeated walks in her rural neighbourhood.
Soundmaker and DJ Willie Stewart, will present an eclectic set responding to ecology in the urban environment.
