This year’s series features “Song of the Human,“ an Arts Brookfield commissioned composition by Pete M. Wyer inspired by Shigeru Miyagawa’s theory that human language evolved from birdsong. The sound installation will also be a part of three performances within the Winter Garden, and will remain on display through October 23.
