Earth Makes No Sound is a collaborative choral work inspired by the elements and the changes happening to our planet. Developed with Goldsmiths Vocal Ensemble, members of the Roundhouse choir and our own Filament Theatre Chorus, Earth Makes No Sound explores the possibilities of dynamic choral singing and the relationship between voice, movement, harmony, body percussion and improvisation.

‘Earth Makes No Sound, a stirring piece…with lulling words and music written by Osnat Schmool.’ AYT (full review here)
‘The sound and movement through the corridors worked beautifully, resonating in the waiting areas. Loved watching the children being carried along the corridors on your ‘wave’ and seeing them dancing and playing with the feathers.’ Member of Staff, GOSH
