Bee Hive Cello is a collaboration with Dr Martin Bencsik (Nottingham Trent University), Wolfgang Buttress and Langar Hall Hotel (langarhall.com). A swarm of bees was encouraged to settle in a reclaimed cello to make it their home. The cello was strung and tuned to the key of C. The vibrational noises are being collected and recorded to create a musical soundscape and will contribute to a musical performance later in the year.
