The multi-channel composition This Forest Doesn’t Exist Anymore comes into being as the final chapter in the sound collage of field recordings initiated some 15 years ago. It is a sort of sound testimonial of the primeval nature and the human presence in it. It builds on the earlier multi-channel composition, Resilient Nature, performed at 4D Spatial Sound Institute in Budapest, as part of the Showroom of Contemporary Sound in 2016. From a bird’s perspective, there are only two species: its own and the dangerous ones. There are no others. The rest is comprised by innocuous objects such as rocks or trees, or people when they are dead. Multi-channel composition This Forest Doesn’t Exist Anymore is the result of participation in KONTEJNER’s educational programmes – the workshop and guided work in a multi-channel studio under the mentorship of electroacoustics engineer and artist Miodrag Gladović.
