‘Painted with Sound: Listen to the Forest’ is the forest as you’ve never heard it before. Original soundscapes and ambient music combine with large cinematic projections for a mesmerising, immersive experience.

‘Painted with Sound: Listen to the Forest’ runs from September 10th to October 2nd at The New Forest Heritage Centre in Lyndhurst. Original soundscapes and ambient music combine with large cinematic projections for a mesmerising, immersive experience.

Clive Brooks, who runs the popular newforestsounds.co.uk website that helped all of us enjoy the beneficial sounds of the forest during the lockdowns, has crafted dozens of original forest soundscape compositions and ambient music pieces for this major sound installation. This time, he’s set his sounds to huge and beautiful cinematic projections of forest scenes. The result is a genuinely immersive environment where visitors are actively encouraged to chill out on comfortable seating for as long as they like. Entry is free, and the installation is open from 10am to 5pm seven days a week. It’s the New Forest as you’ve never heard it before.

The wide-ranging forest soundscapes featured include natural environmental sounds, bubbling streams, the bustle of the villages, traditional forest activities, birdsong, peaceful ambient music and a whole lot more besides. It’s a complete compendium of The New Forest in sound.
