The Palm House, the oldest Victorian greenhouse in existence, has been fitted with 80 speakers. Field recordings of Central and South American rainforests permeate the space in alternating dawn and dusk choruses of 15 – 20 minutes. Chris Watson is an acclaimed sound recordist and founding member of the UK band Cabaret Voltaire.
