Nightingala

Podcast | April 2022

Music doesn’t only belong to humans. Whales and songbirds also hand down their songs from generation to generation. Musician David Rothenberg improvises with nightingales, biologist Tina Roeske studies their social behavior; both want to understand: Can nightingales and humans communicate with each other via sound? Can they learn from each other in doing so? In Chirp Along! The Joys of Making Music with Nightingales, they talk about the nightingale as a symbol, how it compares to techno and about the inter-species joy of music.

Commentary by Sarj Lynch, directed and produced by Julia Vorkefeld, written and conceived by Arno Raffeiner
