48: From Here to Ear

The Peabody Essex Museum in Salem, Massachusettes opened in 1799 and has been exploring the intersections of art, culture, and technology across various disciplines over its tenure as one of the longest continuously operating museums in the United States. The French artist and composer, Céleste Boursier-Mougenot, created an exhibition that is right at home at the PEM. “From here to Ear” is a composition that utilizes space, sounds, and 70 zebra finches interacting with their surroundings. Learn more about this unique sonic art experimentation from from Céleste himself andTrevor Smith, the Curator of the Present Tense at the PEM.
