Join lecturer Dr. David Irving and the ANU CALC at 7pm this Wednesday 30 October in Manning Clark Lecture Theatre 4 for a confronting lecture on the issue of sustainability in the music world.

With more and more exotic woods and materials used to make high-class instruments of all sorts coming under the multilateral treaty; cities, musicians, instrument makers and conservationists around the world are faced with the very confronting prospect of having to find alternate materials to build and complete an instrument. In an age where forests of exotic hardwoods are failing to keep up with the ever-growing demand for 'that' piece of wood and the illegal trade of these materials that sees an international stage, what materials can the musicians and makers of tomorrow turn to?
Will the sound of instruments the people of today are used to be changed forever in the not so distant future? What will this mean for rare instruments like the famed Stradivarius violin if the sound does change? What can we do to ensure the longevity of the availability of materials for future generations?
