As Bernie Krause and I often travelled together in the early days of our marriage and, as I began to accompany him alongside into the field on numerous recording adventures, we connected with people around the globe, in some of the world's most remote places. Upon our return back home, we relied upon the occasional posted letter or rare e-mail from far-away places to keep in touch with some of the friends we made along the way. As the early years of 2000 passed by, more friends and…Continue

TED Global is a fine forum of thought leaders from around the world, sharing their finest efforts on behalf of technology, education/entertainment, and design of 'many stripes'. This past June (2014), Wild Sanctuary's Bernie Krause addressed the audience about his on-going efforts to explore 'the Voice of the Natural World', and how the soundscapes of the natural wild inform our music, language, and dance - from the ancient past to the undiscovered future. To view the video, click the link…Continue

A Salute of Support! The multi-talented Jez Riley French gets a quiet 'shout out' today for the many fine ways his work explores and expresses the world of soundscape, musical composition, and art. His fine sensibilities, gifted talents, and painstaking technical skills combine into a rather astonishing compilation that is well worth knowing about. Some hydrophone stuff on YouTube (below) -- and do visit his well-crafted …Continue

Natural soundscape is certainly tied to the conditions that produce it -- and in 'The Great Animal Orchestra', Soundscape Author Bernie Krause makes the case that this connection is the original font of all human-made music that has evolved over time - but what of human-made music that has now also been influenced by the modern age, it's noise, and it's abstraction from the once pristine order of healthy habitats?…Continue

In a bid to soothe locals and create 'a better environment' the California town of Lancaster is experimenting with regularly broadcasting birdsong recordings over a 1/2 mile stretch of the downtown streets. Serious crimes fell about 6%. Must be working! Here's the article: http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052970203721704577157512700171698.html

Neat notes from NPR about the regional dialect of birds in the 'hood. Does it really come as a surprise that anthropogenic noise affects avian communication? The original article is at the bottom of the linked post. http://wamu.org/programs/metro_connection/11/12/09/changing_your_tune_to_adapt_to_the_urban_jungle
