The Great Animal Orchestra. Listen to Bernie Krause

For over 40 years, American musician and bioacoustician Bernie Krause has collected almost 5,000 hours of sound recordings of natural habitats, inhabited by almost 15,000 animal species. His research offers a wonderful immersion into the sound universe of wildlife, increasingly reduced to silence by the din of human activity.

Invited by the Fondation Cartier in 2016, he created the sound installation The Great Animal Orchestra, in collaboration with London-based collective United Visual Artists, that is now part of the collection of the Fondation Cartier.
