The Animal Symphony Sky Arts throughout December
Can parrots party? Can a sealion keep a beat as well as Ed Balls on Strictly? In Quickfire Media's documentary for Sky Arts, presenter Chris Packham and composer Nitin Sawhney ask whether music is uniquely human? Could some animals recognise and respond to key components of our music, such as rhythm and melody? Using remarkable new scientific evidence Nitin composes a symphony, played by the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra. Will any of his animal audience keep the beat and feel the harmony?
