ABOUT THE ARTIST
Wales-based sound artist Cheryl Beer composes music in collaboration with the biorhythms of nature in crisis. She does this by repurposing hearing aid and biomedical technology and notating conductivity, literally from within the natural world. Every musical note placed on the stave is led by the environment, thus empowering nature’s voice, centre stage. Interested in the relationship between sound, well-being and nature, her work raises awareness of our fragile ecologies by embodying a visceral sense of place.
