The idea behind SAL was to challange and to broaden the concept of land- and nature-art with the means of media- and sound-art

SAL was situated in the Nürnberg forest during the nature-art symposium Kreis im Wald in 2010.

SAL was facilitated with various equipment to record and replay sounds; amongst others, a pair of camouflage-loudspeakers with each 30 meters of cable.

Selected sound- and media-artists, composers and experimental musicians were invited to collaborate by either performing live or by sending sound-files for created to be played to the forest.

The sounds-files and recordings of the live-performances were continuously played to the forest.
