Bernie Krause Live From Fisher Family Hall

Brian Garrick Arts & Ideas, Music, Recorded Live At JCCSF — By on December 13, 2012 1:20 pm

Naturalist, conservationist and musician Bernie Krause shared amazing rare sounds of the natural world that make up “The Great Animal Orchestra.” Krause explained that natural soundscapes form baseline of what we hear in wild places.  These sounds not only enable animals to communicate but are the origin of music itself.  Krause has recorded 4500 hours of material over the past 44 years.  He said that 50% is from habitats that one can no longer hear or are totally extinct.  According to Krause, we are just beginning to understand what this loss means and what sound can teach us about the natural world.
