THE GREAT ANIMAL ORCHESTRA is an interactive sound installation. Krause put together a wide variety of animal vocalisations from biospheres around the world. On the interactive website, users can then orchestrate the sounds from, for instance, the Gonarezhou National Park in Zimbabwe.

“Combining aesthetics and technology, the installation The Great Animal Orchestra simultaneously offers an immersion into the heart of the sounds of nature, and a sound and visual meditation on the necessity of preserving the beauty of the animal world.”
