The North Flatbush Avenue Business Improvement District (BID) is excited to announce its newest public art and engagement project - Singing Tree-Angles - Celebrating the sound of place in lights!--located at the 6th 7th and 8th Avenue Triangles along Flatbush Avenue Brooklyn. “Singing Tree-Angles” brings our public triangles to life enhancing the experience of our unique and dynamic neighborhood along Flatbush Avenue from Atlantic Ave to 8th Ave in Prospect Heights/Park Slope Brooklyn. The installation captures the environmental sounds and the lights pulse to the vibrant Brooklyn activity. Visitors shoppers and neighbors can experience the vibrant melody of the neighborhood through lights and interact with the installation via sculptured abstract tree engagement points with singing clapping whistling or playing tunes and add their own twinkle to the showcase.
We are also thrilled to announce a musical partnership with Karl Larson (https://www.karllarsonpiano.com/) a local pianist composer and instructor who is creating an original unique musical score to accompany the Singing Tree-Angles. The music alongside the unique reactive light show will delight the neighborhood as it “sings” along to the beat of Flatbush Avenue.
Karl will perform a special global debut of “Canopy” on Monday December 11 2023 at 5pm. Join us at the 6th Avenue Triangle at Flatbush Avenue to listen to the original piece as well as other music engagements and join in on the musical fun. As the evening descends watch the lights come alive as Larson’s original score and sound/light integration bring the community closer.
We encourage our neighbors shoppers and fellow BID members to stop by the Triangles @ the intersections of 6th 7th & 8th Avenue @ Flatbush Ave. Stream and play our curated Spotify playlist for this occasion…or Yell Sing Clap Bark or Whistle to interact with the Singing Tree-Angles. Join us as we celebrate the sound of place in light.
