⥰ a multi-species mixtape capturing a cacophony ⋇ of communion between the plant beings of London’s ancient woodlands ≋ ‘phytophonic’ communications between plant species affected by the planetary crisis ⋰ and in existential threat including ★ Oak, Horse Chestnut, Maple, Birch and Sycamore. Seeds, seedpods, leaves ⋇ barks, twigs, casings, catkins and buds rub, stroke, sooth, tickle and brush ∽ together creating sounds elicited from gestures of care and solidarity ⊹ whilst more aggressive gestures of scratching and flicking elicit a more threatened response ✜
