I recently contributed to the museum of ecoacoustic phenomena event.
I performed a site specific piece incorporating the natural sounds present in the garden of Bournemouth Natural Science Society. An interpretation of both the gardens and exhibition. Inspired by the Egyptian 25th Dynasty mummy, containing Tahemaa. The performance featured guests Robin and Rowan Shaw.
Museums are traditionally places of silence. Artefacts displayed in glass cases become objects solely of visual contemplation, even though sound is a central feature of our culture and society. To tell the story of modern science, we therefore need to make more of a noise. To achieve this, we focus on ecoacoustics, an emerging interdisciplinary field that explores the sounds made by species in human-modified and pristine environments. Ecoacoustics also lies at the interface of art and science, providing insights into how we humans are modifying the world around us, and raising awareness of our role in environmental change.
