Opening in June 2016 at the Fondation Cartier Pour l'Art Contemporain in Paris, the exhibition The Great Animal Orchestra will introduce an exclusive acoustic and sensory experience, unveiling the fascinating musical complexity of the living world. Highlighting the incomparable work of musician and bio-acoustician Bernie Krause, the exhibition and The Great Animal Orchestra published in conjunction with this exceptional event will offer an aesthetic, scientific and philosophical exploration of the animal world. Following Bernie Krause's approach, the project will show that the secrets hidden in the natural world's shrinking sonic environment must be preserved, not only for our scientific understanding, but for our cultural heritage and humanity's physical and spiritual welfare. With powerful illustrations and in-depth and original contributions by specialists from different scientific fields, The Great Animal Orchestra is a manifesto for the appreciation and protection of biodiversity.
