In 'The Great Animal Orchestra', Bernie Krause illustrates the disruptive impact of urbanization on animal habitats. He explores how industrial noises, such as those from machines and traffic, hinder birds from finding mates, as natural soundscapes are crucial for their survival and reproduction.
Drawing from reflections and a curiosity about the fragility of human communication, I channeled this thought into a four-channel sound installation that invites us to consider how we, too, might adapt in a world where our most fundamental means of connection is altered. The installation envelops the listener in a scenario where all natural sounds are digitally filtered before reaching the human ear. The accompanying narrative delves into an imagined civilization, exploring the evolution of our hearing and auditory organs in response to this altered auditory reality.
