Paths of interspecies communication

29. May 2021 at 18:00

sound workshop for children 9+ v KD Cerknica

Discover the sound world of animals!

Active listening is encouraged with questions, and upgraded by providing new information through interesting activation orders. During the workshop, participants learn about the differences between sound communication and sound creativity of different animal species, which extend to how animals communicate, why they communicate, and now their sounds can be understood as an expression of sound creativity.

Can humans also communicate with other animals through sound? Can you create sound art with them?

The workshop, which will take place using a silent disco system, is fully recorded and used by downloading the mentor’s transmitter, playing to the participants. The mentor also has a microphone for direct communication with the participants, with which he can record and perform, if necessary, if the planned – and unforeseen – tasks are performed together with the children.
