Vox Naturae

projets-artistiques

concert in motion

Murray Schafer, the father of acoustic ecology, first introduced the notion of "soundscape". About his vocal music, he has said that it seeks to form a spiritual relationship with the environment, or even, as he explains about Magic Songs, to restore aspects of nature which have been destroyed or neglected by humanity.

Coproduction : Les Métaboles and Cité musicale-Metz
The project Vox Naturae is supported by Fondation Bettencourt Schueller.
