Nature Picture Library in partnership with World Wildlife Fund (WWF) has commissioned William Goodchild to write and produce music for a new stills photography project called Coral Triangle to first be shown at Earth Music Bristol this November.
The Coral Triangle covers 6 million square kilometers across the seas of Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Papua New Guinea, Timor Leste and the Solomon Islands.
Between March 2009 and August 2011 Jürgen and Stella Freund undertook an 18-month photojournalistic expedition into the heart of the Coral Triangle, investigating the connectivity between the wildlife and peoples of the region, and the threats they face. Commissioned by WWF, this top photographic team has captured all the beauty and richness of a region often referred to as the 'nursery of the seas'.
William will be introducing Coral Triangle and talking about music for wildlife film at a 'Meet the Film Composer' session as part of Earth Music Bristol. This session will take place at 11:00 am on Wednesday 23 November 2011 at St. George's Bristol.
Earth Music Bristol, a festival of music inspired by the living world and the forces of nature, is presented by St. George's Bristol in association with BBC Radio 3. The festival's Founder and Artistic Director is Edward Cowie and the Co-Director is Suzanne Rolt.
