Through careful cataloging, research and transcription, the sounds of the flora and fauna of the dioramas have been made into two naturalistic compositions that invite performers and audiences an entry to forgotten ways of listening and sounding. The part tragic love song for the wilderness, part experimental sound art, will give a voice to the taxidermies of birds and mammals and man-made trees and landscapes that make up the Natural History Gallery in the Museum.

This will be a live performance with acoustic interpretation, from sixteen vocalists, sound artists and music instrumentalists, from weeks of learning to replicate the sounds of nature.
