The songs on Dudley Benson's 2010 album Forest have been reimagined as part of a remix project called Deforestation.

All of the proceeds from the album going to the Ulva Island Charitable Trust to assist with their conservation work on the bird sanctuary off Stewart Island.

Three of Benson’s remixers - Matmos’ Martin Schmidt, Stef Animal and Barbara Morgenstern - tell of their contributions to the project.
