Musician and philosopher David Rothenberg has long been fascinated by the relationship between humanity and nature. He is the author of Why Birds Sing, Thousand Mile Song, Survival of the Beautiful, and Bug Music, published in April by St. Martins Press, which includes a companion CD. Here's an excerpt from Bug Music , accompanied by a list of cicada-related events this month.

His latest major label music CD, One Dark Night I Left My Silent House (ECM), a duet with pianist Marilyn Crispell, came out in 2010. Rothenberg is professor of philosophy and music at the New Jersey Institute of Technology, and he lives in Cold Spring. The cover photograph was taken June 2011 at Edgar M. Queeny Park in St. Louis during the emergence of Brood XIX cicadas.
