I am walking inside The Hive, an art installation which simulates the sound of thousands of bees humming. The sound of a child in the background of my recording adds a human element. Wolfang Buttress created The Hive as a tribute to Britain’s honeybees and highlights the challenges that our bees face today. I was fascinated to learn that the soundscape of The Hive is in the key of C, because that is the key that honeybees use in their vibrations. There is music all around us, even without us realising – an uplifting thought.
