Album Notes
As philosopher and musician David Rothenberg shows in this searching and personal new album, the nightingale’s song is so exceptional in part because it reflects our own cacophony back at us. As vocal learners, nightingales acquire their music through the world around them, singing amid the sounds of humanity in all its paradoxes of noise and beauty, hard machinery and soft melody. Rather than try to capture a sound not made for us to understand, Rothenberg seeks these musical creatures out, clarinet in tow, and makes a new music with them, along with the fabulous global musicians Korhan Erel, Lembe Lokk, Cymin Samawatie, Sanna Salmenkallio, Benedicte Maurseth, Ines Theileis, Volker Lankow, and Wassim Mukdad. He takes us to the urban landscape of Berlin—longtime home to nightingale colonies where the birds sing ever louder in order to be heard—and invites us to listen in on their remarkable collaboration as birds and instruments riff off of each other’s sounds. Through dialogue, travel records, sonograms, tours of Berlin’s city parks, and musings on the place animal music occupies in our collective imagination, Rothenberg takes us on a quest for a new sonic alchemy, a music impossible for any one species to make alone.
