Pleasure Garden: Genevieve Lacey

Pleasure Garden is an interactive listening garden concept by Genevieve Lacey, our featured musician for July/August 2021. The site includes the two videos offered here as well as other videos and essays.

Pleasure Garden encourages attentiveness. Its meditative music attunes people to details of life cycles that often go unnoticed. Resonances emanate from plants. Birdsong and insect hum feel unusually present as the garden and its visitors are wreathed in subtle sound. Pleasure Garden intensifies an appreciation of gardens as places of discovery and delight.
