Four-channel sound installation presented by Experimental Sound Studio as part of their Florasonic series. Four voices (Jeremiah Cawley, Amy Denio, Katherine Hanson, Maria Mannisto) sing the Latin names of nearly all of the species in the conservatory's Fern Room, over drones derived from a field recording of the room. The common English names of the ferns are whispered in the background.
