Wellfleet Bay, the Wellfleet Harbor Actors Theater and WCAI present Nature’s Soundscapes, the final event of their 2017 environmental film and discussion series on Saturday, April 22 from 7–9 PM. The evening will include the screening of two short films: Nature’s Orchestra: Sounds of Our Changing Planet featuring sound ecologist Bernie Krause and Being Hear, a documentary about the role of sound in the natural world, produced by two men with Cape Cod ties.
After the films, Steve Wilkes, a musician and faculty member at Berklee College of Music, will share some of his work that resulted from a three-year project several years ago called Hear Cape Cod, a collection of quintessential Cape sounds both natural and human-generated. Wellfleet Bay science coordinator Mark Faherty will discuss the importance of birdsong and how researchers use flight calls to track nocturnal bird migrations. Also joining the panel will be Being Hear co-director and co-producer, Matthew Mikkelsen. WCAI’s Mindy Todd will moderate the panel.
Tickets for the film are $12 per person and may be purchased online at what.org, at the WHAT box office, or by calling 508-349-9428.
