Explore the sounds of the rainforest at Kew

Over at Kew Gardens, they're filling the Palm House with the sounds of the rainforest with Chris Watson’s Whispering in the Leaves sound installation, recreating the rainforests of South and Central America.

Through 80 speakers, the installation plays two sound pieces, Dawn and Dusk, transmitted on the hour throughout the day - with Dawn playing in the morning and Dusk in the afternoon, each lasting about 15-20 minutes.

There is also a programme of special performances, workshops, guided tours and talks. To find out more, visit http://www.kew.org/visit-kew-gardens/summer-2010/whispering-in-the-leaves/index.htm
