Index Filicum is derived from an inventory list of all of the species currently housed in the Lincoln Park Conservatory’s Fern Room. Peters conscripted four vocalists to improvise melodic lines over drones derived from the resonant frequencies of the space, using the Latin names of the pteridophytes present as lyrical content, while their common names are quietly whispered in the background.
