Bonjour, i’m Pierre Juillard from France. I’m working in ecology and protection of biodiversity and I’m a musician and audio-naturalist as well. This programme called ‘unknown languages’ was recorded between March and September 2022, in the east of Burgundy. All these places are located around my home : large forests, dry meadows, cliffs and wetlands.

This piece summarizes hours of lonely hikes, waiting, contemplation, observation, silence, restrained breathing … and enhances the biodiversity of this area full of rich natural sites, but highly threatened by human activities as everywhere else in the world.

I collected these recordings for an educational project with the aim of raising awareness of biodiversity of sound and encouraging the listener to discover for himself. It was also a beautiful deep listening experience for me, focused on the acoustics of places and the discovery of new languages.

You will hear the songs of some of the more representative insects, birds and amphibians of this region. No processed sounds here. Have a good listen.
