Each Layer of the Atmosphere | 1. Who Wants to be Born Human?

Podcast by Maria Arnal and José Luis de Vicente

On the difficulty of letting go of our feelings and only seeing the world through human eyes, and the rich rewards of experiencing the planet as a member of a multispecies society. With anthropologist Yayo Herrero, Santa Maria del Pi church archivist Jordi Sacases and beekeeper Èric Barbero. Recorded at Melvida apiary in Collserola and the bell tower of Santa Maria del Pi church.

Each Layer of the Atmosphere is a series of four chapters in which artist Maria Arnal and curator José Luis de Vicente embark on a thrilling journey through the sounds of the Anthropocene, taking in natural spaces, heritage sites, industrial architecture, laboratories and research centres. They will be joined on the way by philosophers, scientists, musicians, naturalists and researchers from a range of different fields, from astrophysics and bioacoustics to artificial intelligence and apiculture.
