Sounds Curious S2, E3: Hearing (Natural) History
Recorded on April 6th, but late to the feed! This week we take a sound walk through the archives over at The British Library, celebrating the vanishing sounds of the natural world. We were led there through a blog interview with the curator of Wildlife & Environmental Sounds at the British Library: http://listeningacrossdisciplines.net/resources/interviews/listening-means-discovery/
The blog got us to pondering the idea of vanishing sounds in the natural world, so you can't really blame us for losing ourselves in the Soundcloud stream for The British Library, and cutting together a virtual sound walk out in the natural world for our listeners: from deer bellowing across a commons in the UK to the sounds of sea birds in a cave in Wales, the rainforest at dawn to stormy weather on deck at sea... Enjoy!
