XXII Triennale di Milano

The Great Animal Orchestra

Installation

Collection Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain, Paris

At the initiative of the Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain, The Great Animal Orchestra was created by American musician and bioacoustician Bernie Krause and the London-based studio United Visual Artists (UVA) on the occasion of its eponymous exhibition in 2016. Traveling the world in search of the nonhuman origins of music, Bernie Krause has recorded and studied the secret and complex organization of animal vocalizations by collecting more than 5,000 hours of recordings of natural habitats. UVA imagined a visual translation of Bernie Krause’s soundscapes, allowing to listen to sounds and visualize them simultaneously in a three dimensional installation. In a movie sequence realized by Raymond Depardon and Claudine Nougaret, Bernie Krause explains more about his approach and how biodiversity has dramatically deteriorated in recent decades.
A meditative work on the necessity of preserving the beauty of the animal world.
