SONICBernheim is a site specific lecture and performance series that explores relationships between sound, music, and nature. Since 2014, co-curators Aaron Rosenblum and Sara Soltau, have brought adventurous sound art programming to audiences at various locations throughout the arboretum at Bernheim. Their unique programing features lectures by guest scholars accompanied by site-specific performances from local and regional artists. Participants are encouraged to expand their traditional techniques to address questions raised by the Bernheim landscape and soundscape. As attendees focus their attention on the soundscape, an opportunity arises to consider the implications of noise pollution, the aesthetic qualities of all forms of sound, and the place of sound in the arts.
