Pleasure Garden
Be immersed in sound and nature with Pleasure Garden. Watch and listen as recorder virtuoso Genevieve Lacey weaves a calming virtual soundscape between the eclectic water conservation beds at Melbourne Gardens. 

This recording of the gently interactive sound installation was made at Royal Botanic Gardens Victoria's Melbourne Gardens in March / April 2019.

Since 2015, there have been eight presentations of Pleasure Garden in three countries. Thanks to elegant audio design, the kinetic sound installation responds to movement – different layers of the composition are triggered by the presence of visitors. 

Composed by Genevieve Lacey (Australia) and Jan Bang (Norway).
