When Wild Sanctuary was building it's first archives of soundscape samples in 1968, hardly anyone, anywhere, could imagine why someone would want to do such a thing. 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: http://www.musicofsound.co.nz/blog/sound-maps
And just for fun, a old pix of Bernie with some unidentified wildlife.
