Once Upon Deep Time - The Album

Once Upon Deep Time is a pop/rock song cycle about the evolution of hearing and our connection to the tree of life. Twelve original songs tell a story, based on what we know from fossils and the living world around us, about how we came to perceive sound and how sound connects us to a living past.

I created these songs to inspire wonder about our shared natural history and to convey the passion that drives me as a scientist.
 
The album features contributions from Samantha Giancarli, David Hess, The Lickerish Quartet, Stockton a Cappella (directed by Neil Aaronson), and my children, Quinn & Maxwell Bonnan
