Deep Listening to Nature
Sunday 26 November
Megalong Community Hall
Megalong Rd, Megalong Valley
Andrew Skeoch and ‘Deep Listening to Nature’ had been scheduled for Friday 23 November at the Planetary Health Precinct. We have subsequently discovered that there will be a performance of the concert ’Nocturnal’ at the Lyrebird Festival in the Megalong Valley on the same evening. It features many of Andrew’s wonderful nature recordings. Andrew will also be presenting his Deep Listening to Nature Talk at 9.30am on Sunday 26th at the Festival. We have therefore negotiated free tickets for those who would like to attend and have cancelled the event in Katoomba to throw our support behind this world class inaugural Festival in the Megalong.
Andrew will also be leading early morning Deep Listening walks in the Megalong on Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th from 7.30-8.30am.
We have also negotiated free tickets for talks by Dr Glenn Albrecht (who recently presented to the BMPHI on the Symbiocene), Janet Laurence (on environmental art), and a conversation between renowned eco-architects Brian Zulaikha and Simon Anderson. More information is available, and bookings can be made, via the Lyrebird Festival website. Use the coupon code “FREESPEECH” to book online for free, or just arrive and mention the Blue Mountains Planetary Health Initiative at the desk and you will be admitted free of charge.
‘Nocturnal’ is a 60-minute multimedia performance by outstanding solo guitarist Andrew Blanch. The work is an ode to the night, and a call to action on light pollution, featuring many of Andrew Skeoch’s nature recordings! Tickets are available for as little as $30 for adults and $5 for U18s.
