This Tree Sculpture Sings Like A Choir Of Ghosts

In Lancashire, England, on the Pennine mountain range overlooking Burnley, there is a large metal sculpture called the Singing Ringing Tree. Standing 3 meters tall, it is a collection of pipes organized in different positions so as to resemble a tree. Powered by wind, the sculpture often “sings” in a truly haunting fashion, sounding like a choir of ghosts beckoning and pleading for someone to listen to them.

I can only imagine what it must be like walking through the surrounding fields at night, hearing those eerie tones float, like fingers reaching out over the land.

The story of the sculpture can be found here. A video that demonstrates the sound can be seen below.
