This new exhibition explores the sounds of many different species of animals to reveal unimagined connections
The internationally acclaimed artist, Marcus Coates, brings his new audio-visual installation to the Science Festival. Inspired by the findings, writings and inventions of the famous scientist James Lovelock, this new exhibition explores the sounds of many different species of animals to reveal unimagined connections between their vocalisations.
In other words, by taking recordings of animals, birds and insects and slowing them down, Coates reveals an audio world we've simply never heard before. And if there are such things as angels and they have a choir, the sound of crickets harmonising en masse must be very close the sound they make.
Marcus Coates will be in conversation at 7pm on Thu 23 Oct.
Part of Manchester Science Festival 2014.
