Inside Out 2014 Ridgeway Responses

What do trees mean to us in terms of their heritage, cultural value and role in the landscape ?

Heartwood is a collaboration between sound artist Adrian Newton, composer Karen Wimhurst and choral director Kathie Prince, which invites us to think about and value the role of trees, and the ash in particular, in our lives.

Karen’s choral work, performed by two choirs and a woodwind trio, is accompanied by the strange internal sounds of the ash which are triggered live during the performance.

Heartwood will be performed throughout the weekend of September 19-21st 2014 on the hill above the cricket ground in Littlebredy, Dorset.

It has been commissioned by Activate for Inside Out Dorset, supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund through the South Dorset Ridgeway Landscape Partnership, West Dorset District Council, Dorset County Council and Arts Council England.

As part of Inside Out 2014, Dorset's festival of extraordinary events in extraordinary places, nine new artistic commissions will animate the stunning South Dorset ridgeway from September 19th - 21st 2014.

The range from Lachrymae, a sound and visual installation in remote Chapel coppice at Ashley Chase, to Ear Trumpet, a performance inspired by the Ridegeway's Music Barrow where it is said if you press your ear to the ground on midsummers day at noon, you hear beautiful music.
