Dusk Chorus - Based on Fragments of Extinction Nika Šaravanja & Alessandro d'Emilia, Italy, 2016, 60 min
In the Ecuadorian Amazon, researcher and eco-acoustic composer David Monacchi (also the film's writer) seeks to capture incredibly detailed 3D soundscapes as vital documents of a rain forest with among the highest biodiversities in the world. This is film as immersive auditory travelogue, seeking the voices of species whose calls may all too soon fall silent due to habitat loss and other anthropocene effects.
Co-presented with the Rubin Museum of Art and their World of Sound series. With David Monacchi and director Alessandro d'Emilia in attendance!
Time and location:
Friday, October 13, 9:30pm Rubin Museum of Art 150 W 17th St, New York, 10011
