Dusk Chorus: Based on Fragments of Extinction by David Monacchi

The film portrays a part of the work of David Monacchi, a sound artist, a researcher and an eco-acoustic composer who has been developing the multidisciplinary project “Fragments of Extinction” for nearly 15 years.

Climate change, the petrol workers, extreme drought, advanced technologies in the wild, primitive circumstances are just some of the challenges David has to face in order to achieve his goal. To record a pure and continuos 24-hour 3D soundscape in order preserve this soundscape for future generations to come. This film offers a unique listening experience of the unheard, primitive eco-symphonies of the disappearing sonic heritage of millions of years of evolution.
