The Museum of Music – Philharmonie of Paris enters, with the exhibition ‘Musicanimale, the big bestiary of sound’, the field of bioacoustics. Curator Jean-Hubert Martin (Centre Pompidou, Museum Kunstpalast, …) invited Koen Vanmechelen to participate with Calling the world. The expo celebrates the beauty of sound; birds' vocalizations, insects' stridulations, whales' melodic songs, or wolves' choral howls. The sounds of some forty species show, via a journey of 150 works, how much animals fascinate and inspire, how much they give rise to visual and sound poetry.
