    Very cool, but i can see how it could get to be annoying to anyone who has to live by it. I don`t think anybody did though, so it`s all good.

    It looks more like a tornado than a tree, and the creepy noise goes along well with that. *Very* cool concept. I wouldn`t want to live next to it, though.

    I`m actually surprised to see this on here. I live about 2 miles from this singing tree. It`s something that noone in this town really appreciates. I`ve seen it a few times in real life. Crown Point, as it shows in the video is actually a popular dogging spot. Dogging being where you go to watch others have sex.... heh.

    Perfect creepy/eerie music for a creepy/eerie movie from a creepy/eerie metal tree.

    Also, you can tell where the wind is going now! Just need a translator to tell you which note is where.

    Wow it`s strange to see something from your town on IAB. I`ve never even actually been up to see it but I heard about it being created a few years ago. I don`t think anyone actually lives there or at least not many people. That thing would drive you insane! I suppose it`s a pretty good piece of art for Burnley though, it`s hardly the cultural capital of the world I can tell you! Lancashire does have quite a strong history of witchcraft though if anyone is interested, most especially in Pendle.
