The Great Animal Orchestra

An American bio-acoustician, scientist and musician, Bernie Krause has collected more than 5,000 hours of recording of natural habitats, including more than 15,000 wild species from all around the world, for nearly fifty years. This catalogue which accompanied The Great Animal Orchestra exhibition at Fondation Cartier features Krause's beautiful recordings from Africa, America, and various oceans alongside works by contemporary artists that reflect our relationship to the animal world. 

The catalogue published in conjunction with the exhibition is an aesthetic, scientific, and philosophical exploration of the animal world. Readers have the opportunity to discover Bernie Krause’s work and to ponder issues related to the preservation of biodiversity through many essays by specialists. Including photographs, maps, diagrams, sonograms, as well as works of the art presented in the exhibition, this catalogue is a true manifesto for the conservation of the planet’s imperiled ecosystems.

Includes an exclusive CD of the exhibition soundtrack.

Listen to Krause's recording from Mungwezi Ranch, Gonarezhou National Park, Zimbabwe.
