Event Details

Tonight, learn about the scientists studying this question and their astonishing findings about the hidden sounds of nature. We now know that many animals—and even some plants—once thought to be silent have actually been communicating and conversing all this time. Tonight, inspired by the recent book The Sounds of Life by Karen Bakker, we will listen to these secret sounds, and learn about the scientists tracking them. Experience the impressive diversity of sounds surrounding us and their possible meanings, from warnings about predators to connection and community building and explore the inventive techniques and groundbreaking digital tools used to capture them. And don’t miss a performance by Ana Roxanne, created in close collaboration with recording legend Bernie Krause and drawing on his extensive archive documenting the music of wild animals and natural environments.
