Bird Whale Bug: Why Make Music with Nature?
David Rothenberg, Musician and Professor at the New Jersey Institute of Technology
Straight from the New Yorker and Radiolab, meet a musician who has jammed live with lyrebirds and broadcast his clarinet underwater for humpback whales. In this surprising lecture, you’ll enter the musical worlds of such creatures as the thrush nightingale, humpback whale, snowy tree cricket, white-crested laughing thrush, superb lyrebird, lesser water boatman and the mountain pine bark beetle.
