And in the silence came…
And in the Silence Came… Is a collaboration with composer Dora Tomic which was made during the Masterclass with the father of sound scaping , Bernie Krause at Stiftung Nantesbuch Center for Art and Nature Munich. The film captures the sounds of the seen and unseen animals and insects at Stiftung Nantesbuch, where a programme of rewilding has been taking place. Bernie Krause has been recording the sounds of animals and insects worldwide for over 60 years, many of which are now extinct. The film is a meditation on the importance of rewilding and the threat of animal and insect extinction without drastic action.
