While waiting for the metro to arrive, residents of Brussels will be able to listen to the birds chirping of the famous Suan forest, located at the southeast edge of the city. Railway Supply magazine writes about this with reference to the CFTS.


The sounds were recorded by the famous Belgian sound artist Jost Van Duppen, who creates all sorts of “sound installations”.

The aim of the project is to restore lost urban sounds in public space, because before people settled in Brussels, this area was a forest inhabited by animals and birds.

The sounds of birds will be heard on the metro platforms between 05:00 and 14:00 as part of the Week of Sounds organized in the Belgian capital from January 30 to February 5.
