A creative project by artist and music producer Nico de Transylvania




We are proud to team up with artist and music producer Nico de Transilvania, Endangered Landscapes Programme and The Arts, Science and Conservation Programme at Cambridge Conservation Initiative to present an event which explores the role of the arts in landscape restoration. The event will include a presentation from the artist alongside her film and music. Combining traditional Romanian songs and instruments, forest soundscapes and electronica, her work captures the spirits of the mountains, revives a sense of pride and raises awareness of the importance of restoring the forests. Nico will be talking about her ELP residency with Foundation Conservation Carpathia and will be showing the film and music from her prize-winning project Interbeing.

The event will conclude with Q&A session with Nico, David Thomas, Director of the Endangered Landscapes programme, John Fanshawe, Curator of Arts, Science and Conservation at the University of Cambridge and artist and architect Heather Ackroyd.

When: Wednesday, 27 September, 4:30pm-5:30pm Where: Cambridge University, David Attenborough Building, Main Seminar Room Interbeing is a multimedia project that celebrates traditional music and the beauty of Romanian nature – a way of life and a landscape that are under threat. The Concept- Album contains recordings of traditional songs and instruments, sounds of nature and electronic music compositions. Within this project, music intertwines with nature, Nico being a very active supporter of ecology. She is also the initiator of “Forest without Frontiers”, which helped panting over 150,000 protected trees. The project was funded through the Endangered Landscape Grant from the University of Cambridge and the National Cultural Fund Administration and serves as a significant example of how music and art can contribute to the regeneration of nature and the preservation of traditions.
