Nature's iPOD: Professor curates 'Wild Music' exhibition

A new science exhibition that explores nature's musical spectrum, from the high-pitched chirping of tiny crickets to the low frequency whistling of Blue Whales, has been developed by Dr. Patricia Gray, a professor and senior research scientist of Biomusic at UNCG's Music Research Institute.

The 4,000-square-foot exhibition, titled "Wild Music: Sound & Songs of Life," opens on Saturday, June 30, at the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences in Raleigh and runs through Sunday, Sept. 16. North Carolina is the second host site on a six-year tour of science museums across the United States.

Gray is an expert in biomusic, the study of the musical sounds in all species of animals, including humans.

"We live in a loud and musical universe that science is just beginning to understand," Gray said. "This exhibition gives visitors the chance to explore their own musicality and that of other living creatures' to hear life as music."

Highlights include:
