RBCM@Home (Summer) Music For Natural History

Music For Natural History with Tina Pearson and Paul Walde

Part tragic love song for the wilderness, part performative sound art, Music for Natural History was a live performance that gave voice to the taxidermied birds and mammals, human-made trees and painted landscapes that form the exhibitions in the Natural History Gallery of the Royal BC Museum. Through careful cataloging, research and transcription, composers and sound artists Tina Pearson and Paul Walde translated sounds of the flora and fauna seen in the dioramas into two naturalistic sound scores that invited performers and audiences an entry to forgotten ways of listening and sounding.

For this session, join Tina Pearson and Paul Walde as they discuss the process of creating this important project, as well as show images and videos that brings everyone along for the musical ride.

RBCM @ Home (Summer) is hosted by Chris O'Connor.
