On Saturday, February 25th, at 2 PM, DVAA is thrilled to welcome sound artist Terry Dame for an afternoon audio experience not to be missed. Dame will perform a set of improvised soundscapes on artist-made instruments fabricated from discarded objects. Listen as she transforms the sounds of her honey bees, native birds, water, and the inescapable human with state-of-the-art technology, weaving sonic tapestries that transport and inspire. This event will surely please all birders, beekeepers, nature
lovers, and audiophiles alike.
