The natural world is the subject of Kings Place’s year-long Nature Unwrapped series helping visitors to connect to nature through sound.
Nature Unwrapped, which runs from 10 January to 9 December 2020, will explore the sounds of the biosphere, human’s interaction with nature, and reflect on the paths open to make change.
More than 70 concerts will take place at Kings Place in London’s King’s Cross throughout 2020.
The year-long programme kicks-off with an opening event on 10 January from sound recordist and composer, Chris Watson. Chris Watson, who has worked on many of Sir David Attenborough’s wildlife and nature series and is also Nature Unwrapped‘s artist-in-residence, has created a collection of sound environments from the northern hemisphere.
Highlights of Nature Unwrapped include Norwegian jazz tuba player, Daniel Herskedal, who will perform with an indigenous Sami singer. Also from Norway comes jazz saxophonist Terje Isungset, who will bring his Arctic Ice Music project involving several instruments made of ice along together with Inuit throat singers, a Tuvan throat singer from Mongolia and artists from Greenland.
