A little video treat shot on location in Marfa created by powerhouse filmmaker duo Walley Films. During a recent trip to Texas I facilitated songwriting workshops at SAY Sí (San Antonio), collaborated with filmmaker Guillermina Zabala to capture the essence of the “Hello Trees” installation (Houston), and hosted a concert at Brick featuring Jess DeCuir on theremin and Dreambored.
I returned to Texas in February 2018 to document the latest offering from interactive design company Daily tous les jours – a walking serenade inspired by the gorgeous live oak trees at Discovery Green in Houston, Texas. Accompanied by filmmaker and artist Guillermina Zabala we explored and documented the inaugural installation of Hello Trees, an interactive sculpture that encouraged visitors to send their messages to nature. By speaking into either end of the installation your voice was transformed into both light and eventually a classical piano abstraction – a poetic meeting of nature, technology and music. We hope you enjoy this creative documentation – an ode to Hello Trees.
