Original title: DUSK CHORUS – Based on “Fragments of Extinction” by David Monacchi
Der Film 'The Dusk Chorus' porträtiert einen Teil der Arbeit David Monacchis, einem Klangkünstler, Forscher und eco - akustischem Komponisten, der seit fast 15 Jahren an dem multidisziplinären Projekt “Fragments of Extinction” arbeitet. Durch Davids Augen und Ohren erleben wir die Sound-Landschaften der vergessenen Welten des Primär-Regenwaldes in Ecuador.
Klimawandel, Ölabbau, extreme Dürre, die Arbeit mit modernster und sensibler Audiotechnik in wilden, primitiven Umständen sind nur einige der Herausforderungen, denen David sich stellen muss, um sein Ziel zu erreichen: die Aufnahme einer ungestörten und kontinuierlichen 3D Soundscape, um das akustische Erbe des Regenwaldes für zukünftige Generationen zu bewahren.
