Event Details

The gifts of sound making and sound perception have deeply embellished human cultures and experience: from world music and singing, to the broad conversations that we cultivate to understand who and where we are. Humans are adapted to convey information through sound, but we also share a common perceptual relationship to sound with other living creatures in that we use sound to establish our relationships with our surroundings and other living beings within it. Some of these relationships are rich in sentiment and sensation, others can be disruptive or even damaging.

Bioacoustician Michael Stocker explores human and other animal relationships with sound: The evening discussions might include human/dolphin cooperative hunting, the balletic murmerations of starlings, how fish “see” and barnacles imprint to their mother reef through sound, and how elephants communicate through the earth.

Come and hear and discuss the eerie songs of the Weddell seals, the synchronized chorusing of crickets and, the long-distance navigation signals of the great whales.
