The music was initially created by Kevin Bales and Tony Foster (who've worked with Spiritualized, Julian Cope, Dave Gahan and Mark Lanegan, amongst others) to provide the soundscape for the UK Pavilion at the Milan Expo 2015. Since then the project has progressed into the full album now available on Society of Sound.
The 2015 Milan Expo brought together 145 participating nations under the theme "Feeding the Planet: Energy for Life". The UK Pavilion, designed by artist Wolfgang Buttress, highlights the plight of the honeybee focusing attention on the importance of pollination.
The album you can hear now on Society of Sound is a constantly changing and evolving symphony - a dialogue between bee and human.
