Looking Outward – 10

The Great Animal Orchestra | Fondation Cartier pour l'art contemporain |  Artsy

The project I chose to write about for this assignment is called the Great Animal Orchestra. As I discussed music in LO-04, this focuses more on sound art. The Great Animal Orchestra makes use of recorded soundscapes with lit up spectrograms of these sounds displayed across walls of a dark room. The sounds came from the many recordings of terrestrial and marine species documented by ecologist Bernie Krause. He has collected over 5,000 hours of recordings from over 15,000 species. I find this project interesting because it combines nature and technology by creating a digital environment representing a variety of ecosystems.
