Felbrigg Hall, Gardens and Estate

Bio-sonification Live | 18 July, 15 August and 12 September | 7-9pm | Admission applies

Experience the magic of plant music in a unique setting with a series of late openings this summer. By night an audio experimentalist and by day a Felbrigg gardener – Martin Noble-James from Revolutionary Biscuits has expert insight into the plants he makes playful and relaxing music with.

Using sensors similar to an ECG machine, witness him translate the electrical impulses produced by plants into musical notes using his trusty analog synthesizer. Discover how factors like the weather affects the inner workings of plants and influence the live composition. Bring a blanket, pack a picnic and enjoy otherworldly sounds at sunset in Felbrigg’s much-admired Walled Garden – bursting at the seams with heady colour, fragrance and textures.

Suitable for all ages. Free entry for National Trust members. Assistance dogs only.
