DOWNLOAD AS PDF

Brooklyn based electro-acoustic composer and performance artist Michael Harren has released The Animal Album and The Animal Book. The album and book, based upon Harren’s successful multimedia solo show, The Animal Show, blends humor with candor to convey the importance of keeping all animals safe from harm. Both releases are available now.

The Animal Show premiered in New York City in 2016 and continues to be performed in venues throughout the United States. Through stories, music, and video from his artist residency at Tamerlaine Farm Animal Sanctuary, The Animal Show takes the audience on a ride that will inspires people to think differently about their relationships with all kinds of animals.

“Michael Harren is using the magical power of the arts to advocate for animals,” says VegNews Senior Editor Jasmin Singer. “He proves that allowing others to witness your story is an effective—and staggeringly beautiful—way to effectively inspire change.”

The book presents the full text of the show along with photos, video stills, and other behind-the-scenes material. Paired with the album, it is a fully immersive experience. The book was designed by luke kurtis, who previously collaborated with Harren on Tentative Armor. Both books are published by bd-studios.com.

The book and album is available for sale at michaelharren.com. Digitally, the album is available at iTunes, Spotify, Bandcamp, Google Play and all other digital retailers. The book is also available in eBook format for Amazon Kindle, Apple iBooks, and Google Play.
