Michel André is the founder and Director of the Laboratory of Applied Bioacoustics at the UPC (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya) in Vilanova i la Geltrú (Barcelona), which holds one of the world’s largest libraries of recordings of the natural world. He has placed microphones in the remotest parts of the Earth - from the polar regions to the Amazon jungle - to demonstrate the impact of noise pollution on the environment and help develop conservation techniques. His appearance on Stage+D will be part conference and part audiovisual experience.
He’s joined on the programme by Liam Young, whose films and books explore speculative worlds and future ecologies. The work of the BAFTA-nominated director and ‘speculative architect’ links current realities with fictional futures. Stage+D is the perfect venue to dive into his immersive, imaginary worlds.
