Martyn Stewart on the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge

This fragile and amazing place is one of the world's most untrammeled landscapes.  Of course, that also means it's a quietly bountiful place to capture the timeless soundscape of the Arctic.  Let's hope that public support keeps the Arctic Refuge protected from development, so future generations can hear the natural chorus, intact and still performing century after century...http://www.birdnote.org/birdnote.cfm?id=1288

Here it comes folks. Everybody and their iPhone in the field.

http://blogs.kqed.org/climatewatch/2011/02/14/why-the-pros-need-citizen-science/The idea of going quietly into the field as a solitary exploration may have met it's match in the compelling new iPhone apps now being developed to encourage 'citizen science'.  Of course, ecological monitoring is needed to help protect and preserve natural bio-diversity, and that takes having good and…

The Fragile Soundscapes of The Arctic Refuge

In 2006, we watched as a white poster board was held up to members of the US Congress in an attempt to portray the regions of The Arctic National Wildlife Refuge as nothing but vast, white snow-covered nothingness, free space for unabashed resource extraction.

But what marvelous changes friendly technology and a bit of time can bring to public perceptions! Just look at the amazing list of Soundmaps put together by Music of Sound, New Zeland; our thanks to them for this great post. Check it out:… Continue

Art of the Landscape/Soundscape

Poignant -- the way that artistic expression now captures in breathtaking detail what once may have been commonplace awareness. As landscapes and soundscapes disappear from our daily life they are being captured and re-expressed by the artist, over and over throughout time. Catch the shadows - throw them back and forth, illuminate the world with creative awareness. Dig this work by Jim Denevan presenting the frozen surface of Lake Baikal,… Continue

Soundscape of the Day

Lovely how Phill Harding captures soundscapes from his daily life and turns them into extraordinary sharings. His soundscape blog invites the listener to sense his world and travel alongside through galleries, train trips, world cup football games, stereo shops, woods, gardens, barns, cricket matches and more. I love his inventive 'Buying an Earring for a 10 year-old Boy' ringtone!
