(Featuring David Attenborough excerpts from ‘The Life Of Birds’) 


‘Each kind of bird listens to its own particular section of the sound spectrum. His mate like many will be impressed by the originality and complexity of his song. He may sing this song over 500,000 times in a season. 


By late springs, migrants have arrived from Southern europe and Africa and are adding their voice to the chorus. He’s like a Jazz singer, continually improvising and different males develop different singing styles.’

Authenticity ? 

Dieter Mack, speaker  


“Authenticity denotes a critical quality of perception contents that presupposes the opposition of illusion and reality as a possibility of deception and forgery. (…) The separation of the authentic from the supposedly real or the fake may be seen as a specific human form of world- and self-knowledge. ” (https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Authent…) 


“Authentic art can only exist, if the truth about that wrong reality is able to resist that situation with the expression of “untransfigured suffering” (…). The inhumanity of art must go beyond the inhumanity of the world, in favour of humanity itself.” (Adorno, Theodor W.: Philosophie der Neuen Musik, Frankfurt 1972 (1949), page 126) Visual Mapping: W.etc…
