Rozsa to present Soundscape Ecologist Bernie Krause Nov. 12

HOUGHTON -- What is soundscape ecology? It is the "Great Animal Orchestra," the sounds of wild places that have been the focus of Dr. Bernie Krause’s research for decades. The Rozsa Center is proud to present an evening with Dr. Bernie Krause at 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 12. This event is free, and is sponsored by the Mark Eugene Howard Endowment and in collaboration with the Michigan Tech Department of Visual And Performing Arts.

The emergent field of Soundscape Ecology reveals what nature sounds tell us about today’s changing eco-systems -- and the creatures that dwell in them. Since 1968, Wild Sanctuary has traveled the globe to record, archive, research, and express the voice of the natural world -- its soundscape. These increasingly rare sounds of the wild inform and enrich our specialized efforts from the field to public performance.

"Bernie Krause and his niche theory are the real thing. His originality, research and above all basic knowledge of the sound environments in nature are impressive." -- E. O. WILSON

This event is free; however, due to limited seating we recommend ticket reservations. To receive tickets, call (906) 487-2073, order here online, or visit Ticketing Operations at Michigan Tech’s Student Development Complex (SDC). Please note the Rozsa Box Office is closed during regular business hours, and will only open two hours prior to show times.
