GR0W is a sound installation created for the
Hannah Peschar Sculpture
Garden in Surrey, UK..
Situated in a secluded part of the garden known as 'The Oriental Pond', the piece takes its inspiration from the genetic makeup of the
plants growing nearby.
Fast moving but gentle musical patterns derived from the plants' DNA contrast with slower melodies based on sequences governing the
processes of growth and aging. The sounds slowly fade in, teasing the ears with their presence, and quietly dance around the pond
before fading out again returning the listener to the garden's gentle soundscape.
The work was the result of an eight-month residency in association with the garden where Robert investigated themes connected
with the plants of the garden. It was funded by Arts Council England South East, the Performing Right Society Foundation and
Mole Valley District Council.
Opening times: May to October, Fridays & Saturdays: 11am - 6pm,
Sundays & Bank Hols: 2pm - 5pm.
