Le Grand Orchestre Des Animaux - the Great Animal Orchestra (Hardcover) (Bernie Krause & Bruce Albert)
About this item
An American bioacoustician, scientist, and musician, Bernie Krause has collected more than 5,000 hours of recordings of natural habitats, including more than 15,000 wild species from all around the world, for nearly fifty years. This unparalleled research has proven to be a rare insight into the unseen world of animals. It reveals the beauty and intricacy of animal vocalizations, which are now in danger of being silenced by human activity. The Great Animal Orchestra, published in conjunction with an exhibition at the Fondation Cartier, offers an aesthetic, scientific, and philosophical exploration of the animal world that pairs these remarkable recordings with works by contemporary artists. Readers will have the opportunity to discover Bernie Krause’s work and to reflect on issues related to the preservation of biodiversity through many essays by specialists. Including photographs, maps, diagrams, sonograms, as well as the works of the artists presented in the exhibition, this catalog is a true manifesto for the conservation of the beauty of ecosystems.
