Audio as the Realm of the Dead was a 2007 site-specific memento mori sound art project by Victoria Estok:

Created as a gift to those who recognize Roosevelt, NJ as their home, this one day sound installation allowed the dead to be heard again and the listener to enter into a realm of shared memory deep within the interior of the Roosevelt woods.

Past skunk cabbage and locust trees, one could hear 31 voices emanating throughout the trees during a 20th anniversary  RAP (Roosevelt Arts Project) celebration in May 2007.

You can listen to the soundscape here.
