PARADISE NOW: Synergetica Art-Science Salons 2014
Salon 2: MUSIC FROM NATURE
15:00 - 17:00 Sunday April 20th, 2014 at Het Glazen Huis, Amstel Park

featuring a soundwalk in the park with David Rothenberg, followed by a lecture


Musician, philosopher and author David Rothenberg is interested in the musicality of diverse living creatures and performs with the sounds of birds, whales, and insects, sometimes live, sometimes slowing down and speeding them up to get them into the realm of human hearing. This Synergetica Art-Science Salon begins with a soundwalk in which participants will be sensitized to the full realm of sound in the park.

If you visit the Glass House for the soundwalk, you will also be able to see the groundbreaking exhibition Symbiotic Machine by Ivan Henriques, developed in collaboration with Raoul Frese and Vincent Friebe, biophysicists from the VU Amsterdam LaserLaB, physicist Michiel van Overbeek and engineer Leydervan Xavier from Cefet/RJ (Technological School from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil). The artist Ivan Henriques will be present to answer your questions.



David Rothenberg, a professor of philosophy and music at the New Jersey Institute of Technology, has written and performed on the relationship between humanity and nature for many years.  He is the author of Why Birds Sing, on making music with birds, also published in England, Italy, Spain, Taiwan, China, Korea, and Germany. It was turned into a feature length BBC TV documentary.  His following book, Thousand Mile Song, is on making music with whales.  It was turned into a film for French television. Other books include Sudden Music, Blue Cliff Record, Hand’s End, and Always the Mountains. His book on the evolution of beauty, and how art and science can be better intertwined, is Survival of the Beautiful, published by Bloomsbury in 2011. His latest book on insects and music, along with a companion CD, was published in April 2013 by St. Martins Press under the title Bug Music
