Why Birdsong is Music - the Theory and Application

When: Sat., June 18, 2-3:30 p.m. 2022

Dr. Doug Carroll will discuss his theory of defining music to include birdsong and not just human artistic creation. The talk will focus on the songs and sounds of birds but also will feature those of insects and mammals, and additionally he will cover natural sound recording techniques.  The program will conclude with an interspecies musical piece performed live by Carroll on cello and accompanied by recorded birdsong. Join us at the Morris Graves Museum of Art for an afternoon of music and nature, with local Cellist, Doug Carrol as he performs “Song of the Eternal Dawn—Music for Cello and Animal Sounds.” Museum-goers will experience interspecies music--original music performed on cello with accompaniment of pre-recorded birdsongs and other animal sounds.Recordings from the Arcata Marsh, Arcata Community Forest and Trinidad Beach will be included in this program. The second set will feature a cello and gong duet with Carroll and Joan Richards. Richards is a local gong player and Yoga instructor.
