Reflections on Music and Nature

Sep 19, 2022

from August 6, 2020:

Humans aren't the only ones who make music. The whales were not available for this interview, but I was able to chat with the lovely humans of "Song Sessions," an ensemble that performs music inspired by the complex structures underneath the surface of whale song. We talked about the ensemble's work, songs and improvisations of whales, past composers inspired by whales, and the intersection of art, science, and activism.
