He is a rarity who is both a high praised musician/composer and a famous eco-philosopher. He plays music like he writes, playful and curious. He wonders why nature is beautiful? If you can play a duet with a bird? Or how come the music of a whale has the same patterns as that of a nightingale?
David Rothenberg has long been interested in the musicality of sounds made by inhabitants of the animal world. He has jammed live with lyrebirds, broadcast his clarinet underwater for humpback whales, and covered himself in thirteen-year cicadas to wail away inside a wash of white noise. In this concert he presents a musical trajectory through several of his favorite species, revealing their distinct and evolved aesthetic senses in an attempt to show that music can reach across species lines, from human to animal, and back.
Rothenberg 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, that was turned into a feature length BBC TV documentary. Rothenberg is professor of philosophy and music at the New Jersey Institute of Technology.
As part of the evening, Restaurant Ketelhuis presents pinchos and tapas including locally made biological cheeses, homemade sausages, self produced olive-oil and freshly baked bread from the bakery downstairs.
