The Great Animal Orchestra: Cartier is bringing an immersive art experience to the U.S.

On November 20 The Peabody Essex Museum and the Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain will present the North American premiere of The Great Animal Orchestra: an immersive audio-visual experience that celebrates our planet’s rich biodiversity.
A collaboration between soundscape ecologist Bernie Krause, who collected more than 5,000 hours of recordings of natural environments, and United Visual Artists to visualize these recordings as animated spectrograms, which immerse us in the heart of these wild soundscapes. In this exhibition, Krause creates an orchestra of animal sounds with the hopes that hearing these unique sounds will galvanize us to protect the dwindling species and their natural habitats, preserving them for future generations. This unique installation makes a plea for preserving the wondrous diversity of the animal world.
