Bernie KrauseAn Earth Day interview with legendary soundscape artist Bernie Krause

During the current Covid-19 lockdown, our cities have become eerily silent, allowing us to reconnect with the sounds of nature. After working with big name music acts such as The Doors, the Weavers, George Harrison and other music legends as a pioneer with the Moog synthesizer, legendary sound artist and bioacoustician Bernie Krause switched his attention to the sounds of nature. To date he has recorded over 15,000 species on over 5,000 hours of tape, culminating in his Great Animal Orchestra. Michael John Gorman, director of the new BIOTOPIA museum in development in Munich will interview Bernie Krause about the importance of experiencing biodiversity through the ears, and how tuning into the dawn chorus can alert us to the consequences of climate change, urbanization and deforestation.

 

How to join

You can experience this event live online: The interview will take place on Instagram Live and will be accessible for all Instagram-followers of Biotopia. Afterwards, the interview will continue to be available for those who missed it live. We will post it on our website, YouTube and Instagram and share it in all our social media.

Earth Day 2020

April 22, 2020 is International Earth Day. The BIOTOPIA Live-Event was therefore registered as an official online event for Earth Day. We hope to reach as many people as possible on this way and to draw attention to the protection of ecosystems and the wonderful world of natural soundscapes.

Regrettably, we have to announce that this year's BIOTOPIA SENSE Festival will not take place on June 21, 2020. Both the ban on major events until 30 August issued by the German and Bavarian governments and our concern for the safety of all people involved – contributors, organizers and visitors – make this step necessary.
