Rain Flower Walk

Rain Flower Walk

More and more people  understand the power of sonic surroundings. People want to enjoy natural sounds, but they play the digital form of it via headphones. Nature and cities are offering already a large range of interesting “songs” played in space. Rain Flower Walk I want to show that the correlation sound-people’s movement and landscape is possible.

The outdoor installation for public sphere and private gardens,  amplifies sound of rain letting people experience the sonic landscape.

From 2016 the installation was placed in various public parks between The Netherlands and Italy, here a selection of places.

Natural sounds are used to meditate and to find a mental balance. Those natural sounds surround us, they are free and with this installation people can benefit and have a personal sensorial experience of the landscape. Rain Flower Walk is a sound sensorial experience designed to amplify the sound of rain and reconnect people with nature. This proposal is one of the two designs from the graduation project Sound Zen Gardens. A Rain Flower is composed by a disc, nuts and bended stem made of stainless steel. The disc is made from a sheet of metal pulled through a mould, to give the organic look and to change tone in the pitter patter of raindrops. For creating variety in the noise-pitch, are used two thickness in the thin sheet. And different dimensions are to amplify noises: where the larger flower, with longer sustain, will amplify more each drop. Flowers are organised along a walking path. Once raining, the composition will be perceived with different tempos depending on how fast you walk through it. Rain Flower Walk let people have a personal sound experience of the landscape. #zengardens #rainwalk
