The Listening Tree welcomes visitors to St. Luke's park with outstretched branches that complement the arched tree canopy framing the entrance pathway. Referencing both the natural and cultural worlds, the piece establishes a visual and sonic link between the park and the surrounding urban environment. The Listening Tree is a musical instrument that is played by the wind: At certain times, slotted pipes channel the wind, creating a series of shifting tones.

The local artists behind Mixed Metaphors, Jesse Stewart and Matt Edwards, come from interdisciplinary backgrounds in music, art, and architecture. They share a common interest in sound and sound art.
