Abstract

This piece was commissioned as part of a collaboration between the Adelphi Contemporary Music Group here at the University of Salford, and the Beauty and the Beasts; Falling in love with Insects exhibition at the Manchester Museum. This project is part of the museum’s mission to build a sustainable world. Insects keep ecosystems working and are the food of the world, but many habitats and individual species are currently under threat of extinction. The project seeks to explore our complex relationship with insects and highlights the fact that the vast majority of insects are not only harmless to humans, but vital for maintaining the earth as we know it. A world without insects would, in the end, be a world without people. Art, and collaboration with artists is central to the storytelling and exploration of the project.
