Weaving together the voices of Brazil's forest
Vozes da floresta delivers to our ears the diurnal cycles and seasonal changes in the soundscape of the Brazilian Amazon forest. The project takes off from activist Bruno Manser, who in 1992 pointed out the threat to the Borneo rainforests through deforestation. He let the forest and its indigenous population speak, along with scientists and journalists. For this new project, Marcus Maeder and his team do the same, weaving the human voices of artists and scientists into the multilayered, densely structured sounds produced by the voices of the non-humans inhabitants of the Amazon. The rainforest soundscape becomes the music of life.
