The Singing Ringing Tree Video
The Singing Ringing Tree is a wind powered sound sculpture resembling a tree set in the landscape of the Pennine hill range overlooking Burnley, in Lancashire, England.
Completed in 2006, it is part of the series of four sculptures within the Panopticons arts and regeneration project created by the East Lancashire Environmental Arts Network (ELEAN). The project was set up to erect a series of 21st-century landmarks, or Panopticons (structures providing a comprehensive view), across East Lancashire as symbols of the renaissance of the area.
Designed by architects Mike Tonkin and Anna Liu of Tonkin Liu, the Singing Ringing Tree is a 3-metre tall construction comprising pipes of galvanised steel which harness the energy of the wind to produce a slightly discordant and penetrating choral sound covering a range of several octaves. Some of the pipes are primarily structural and aesthetic elements, while others have been cut across their width enabling the sound. The harmonic and singing qualities of the tree were produced by tuning the pipes according to their length by adding holes to the underside of each.
In 2007, the sculpture won (along with 13 other candidates) the National Award of the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) for architectural excellence.
Despite a blustry windy day the hum of the Singing Ringing Tree Penopticon (powered by the wind) was just audible. Nevertheless the views high over Burnley, and the many sites on our Rossendal Valley walk were stunning to see.
The Singing Ringing Tree is an imaginative art installation constructed of varying thicknesses of metal pipe. The 54,000 pound sculpture uses wind energy which passes through the precision-fabricated pipes with special holes in specific pipes to create musical notes. Think of it as a gigantic version of a woodwind musical instrument. The monument is the only one of its kind in the Western Hemisphere. It is based on the original “Singing Ringing Tree” in Lancashire, England, which has won numerous UK awards. John was commissioned by a U.S. customer to build a similar version for the Lone Star State.
This project took four months and was built in Cypress, TX by John King of JK Welding also featured in the October 2020 issue of The Welder magazine. Design Credit to Mike Tonkin & Anna Liue Our Website: https://jkwelding.net/
My visit to the Singing Ringing Tree in Burnley, Lancashire, UK. Created by architects Tonkin Liu, the tree's many pipes are tuned to produce an eerie sound. For more like this, join Dave at www.daveconservatoire.org for the full collection of videos and interactive exercises.
Maybe it will attract the Aliens? I believe it is an amazing work of art. The UK is so talented in music especially! They came to Texas and helped them build one. Now if each State/Country would build one, there would be a unique communication of music going on. Just saying....
Anthony Howe has been sculpting kinetic structures for nearly 30 years. In 1996, he filled his own sculpture park with metallic pieces that dance in the wind. His work has even appeared at the 2016 Rio Olympics and the holiday display for Barneys in NYC! Howe hopes his artwork gives viewers a moment of semi-meditative peace.

Su diseño y fluidez de movimientos son una bella expresión artística de lo que en astrología reconocemos como dinamismo mandálico / zodiacal de manifestación y reabsorción de la energía.
