Introduction by:

Experimental composer, writer, and interdisciplinary theorist David Dunn discusses his work and presents his ideas as they relate to multiple disciplines. He focuses on his work from the last fifteen years which looks at modeling environmental interaction involving the traditions, structures, and psychological effects of music. Following his description of a piece using three trumpets playing at the bottom of the Grand Canyon, he plays a short excerpt where crows can be heard interacting and responding to the horns. Much of his work concerns the study of how animals think, called cognitive ethology and looks at new ways of defining the relationship between human beings and animals. In speaking about the concept behind one of his pieces Dunn comments on a rediscovery of natural magic in the form of technology.
