23 April 2015 – Why music happened; birdsong, music and the evolution of listening
The Castlemaine Library is set to come alive later this month with the sounds of bird calls, frog choruses and drumbeats. “Why music happened; birdsong, music and the evolution of listening” is a sonic journey presented by Andrew Skeoch.
Andrew will explore how nature – through birdsong, animal calls, insect and frog choruses – uses sound to communicate, survive and adapt, and will discuss how music has evolved in our own species.
Andrew is a bioacoustic researcher, musician and sound recordist. His intriguing conclusions are supported by audio recordings made over 20 years in wild habitats the world over, and will have you appreciating music from an entirely fresh perspective.
This free event is being hosted by the Castlemaine Library – Bookings are essential – please click here or phone the library on 5472 1458.
Light refreshments provided.
Thursday, 23 April 2015 – 6:00pm to 7:30pm
