Enchanted Forest

The enchantment of light and sound

An enchanted forest is a forest under, or containing, enchantments. Such forests are described in the oldest folklore from regions where forests are common, and occur throughout the centuries to modern works of fantasy. They represent places unknown to the characters, and situations of liminality and transformation.

This is somehow what happens in places like Perthshire Big Tree Country — Scotland —, Descanso Gardens, in La Cañada Flintridge, and Black Oak Ranchwhich, in Laytonville — California. If the first two rely primarily on the creative talents of lighting and sound designers who make a spectacular display of glowing lights that brings the forest to life once the sun goes down, the third is a three days intimate festival based on live and electronic musical acts and close-knit community experiences within a fairytale setting of majestic Oak trees.

Thanks to the amazing images from the sites and the series by Denis Vejas, we can figure out here something about the enchantment we’re talking about, waiting to live it firsthand, one day or another…
