Andrew Skeoch presents “Deep listening to nature” at Lithgow Library
23 November 2023 - 26 November 2023
Lithgow Library is delighted to host Andrew Skeoch for a fascinating presentation on Thursday 23 November 2023, from 3.00-6.00pm.
Andrew is an educator, author, naturalist, environmental thinker, and one of Australia’s best- known nature sound recordists.
Over the last thirty years, he has documented the sounds of wild environments around the planet, and through his label Listening Earth, published over 100 recordings featuring habitats from most continents.
His recordings are featured in the audio installation at Sydney Wildlife World, plus the currently touring Australian Geographic/Northern Pictures immersive installation “Our Country”. They have also contributed to feature films, including Peter Gabriel’s soundtrack to Rabbit Proof Fence, Disney’s 2016 remake of The Jungle Book and the upcoming Force of Nature with Eric Bana.
Andrew’s Lithgow talk will feature vibrant recordings and spectrogram analysis that shows the beauty of birdsong. He will guide the audience into hearing the languages of nature; developing your auditory awareness, identifying species by ear, recognising behaviours and repertoire, and finding empathy with the voices of other beings.
Andrew will also be selling and autographing copies of his latest book titled Deep Listening To Nature.
This is an event not to be missed!
Light refreshments will be provided.
Bookings not required.
Whilst in the area, Andrew will also be attending the Lyrebird Festival in the Megalong Valley, presented by the Bowerbird Collective and running from 23-26 November, 2023.
