Beyoncé set designer Es Devlin creates 'singing tree' for V&A

The tree has been designed by Es Devlin, who has designed stages for Kanye West and Beyoncé, and is accompanied by "layered polyphonic soundscape of human and machine generated voices".

The installation will take the form of a cloud of floating words that have been contributed by visitors to the museum.

The tree will be created in collaboration with video designer Luke Halls, creative technologist Ross Goodwin, creative agency Sunshine and music and sound company Res.Lab.

It is part of a month-long musical celebration of Christmas that also features choirs, candlelit concerts, pop-up performances, film screenings and decoration making workshops.
