In the upcoming May evenings, when the leading musicians of the night of nature are nightingales, two unique sound events in the natural environment will take place as part of the Steklenik Gallery program. David Rothenberg will improvise live in the area of ​​Iški Morost and Škocjanski zatok  with nightingales and other birds living there. He will invite them to the interspecies improvisational session by listening intently and improvising on his clarinet. Due to his long-term collaboration with birds, Rothenberg understands their most subtle artistic impulses to sing.

A dystopian story of Earthling Gaia recounts a possible future of the Lake Cerknica area. We experience the sound performance while walking a selected part of the Drvošec trail. We stop at the observation posts, observe the lake, experience the forest and, above all, listen. Earthling Gaia, a girl as a metaphor and the main character of the performance, will speculate on a potential scenario of the future of our overstrained planet which indisputably dictates the development of the local landscape.
