Author Andrew Skeoch Deep Listening to Nature Presentation at Parkes Library

Wed 12 June at 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm


How can we engage our hearing to connect more deeply to nature around us?

Andrew Skeoch is a naturalist, sound recordist, environmental thinker and author of Deep Listening to Nature.

His recordings have been heard in documentaries, installations and feature films such as Peter Gabriel’s soundtrack to Rabbit Proof Fence.

Over the last thirty years, Andrew has been documenting the sounds of environments around the planet, and through his label Listening Earth, published over one hundred recordings, allowing listeners to immerse themselves in wild soundscapes.

Meet Andrew at Parkes Library where he will give a unique presentation.
