Yasuni Soundscapes - A Binaural Podcast by Lang Elliott
A fully binaural 30-minute podcast featuring 23 nature soundscapes from the Yasuni National Park region in Ecuador's lowland rainforest (at the wonderful Sani Lodge). All recordings were gathered during the first week of November, 2018. Please use headphones for a fully immersive listening experience! In this nature sound experience, I share my rainforest recording adventure, condensing nearly six days of field work into a reconstruction of a typical day of observing and listening. The soundscapes that are featured can indeed be experienced in a day. Not so with recording ... it's far easier to listen than to actually capture the soundscapes. That said, I am quite happy with what I managed to get, although I sure wish I could have stayed for another few days. As an aside, the guides at Sani Lodge, all indigenous, were terrific. Not only did they know the sounds of virtually everything, they were also wonderful imitators, quite often singing back to the birds, for the sheer joy of it. © 2018 Lang Elliott, musicofnature.com.

Spring Delights 2018 - A Binaural Podcast by Lang Elliott
This binaural podcast features recordings I made during the month of May in 2018, at the height of spring near my home in upstate New York. Please join me on this nature sound adventure, and be sure to listen using headphones for a fully spacious experience. This is the first in a series of two or three podcasts wherein I will share my best recordings from 2018. Because of project deadlines that kept me glued to my computer, I did not get out much this season. But that will change next year, when I plan to head to Florida in early spring and then follow spring north, perhaps all the way to the Gaspé!

Delayed Spring - A Binaural Podcast by Lang Elliott
Delayed Spring — A Binaural Podcast by Lang Elliott The great warbler migration is upon us here in Ithaca, on this fine warm day of May 3rd. But the ten days between my last blog post and today were not the greatest, weather-wise or bird-wise, with lots of cold days, freezing nights, rain and wind. It even snowed one afternoon! Nonetheless, I gathered recordings of 21 species on four different days and I've put together this new podcast ... Delayed Spring ... to celebrate what I found. About twenty minutes long, the podcast features quite a number of deliciously spacious binaural soundscape recordings. So, if you listen with headphones or earbuds, you may very well think you're out in nature with me, fully immersed in the 3D sound environment. Note that I've made a special effort to include long intervals where you just hear the sounds of nature, rather than me gabbing about it all. What follows is a list of the 21 species featured, roughly in the order in which they are presented in my podcast: Wood Frog, Spring Peeper, Blue Jay, Whie-throated Sparrow, Swamp Sparrow, Black-capped Chickadee, Dark-eyed Junco, Louisiana Waterthrush, Hermit Thrush, Eastern Phoebe, Blue-headed Vireo, Yellow-bellied Sapsucker, Belted Kingfisher, Mallard, Yellow-rumped Warbler (I think), Eastern Towhee, Field Sparrow, Red-winged Blackbird, Downy Woodpecker, Northern Mockingbird, and American Toad. I hope you enjoy the show!

Backyard Bird Walk Podcast
An impromptu podcast featuring nature recordings I made in my backyard on April 22, 2018. I used a Telinga stereo parabola. The Story: I got up early on Sunday (April 22) to see how many birds I could record with my trusty parabolic microphone. I was expecting perhaps a dozen or so, given the difficulty of getting decent recordings. As it turns out, I ended up recording a whopping 26 species … 24 birds, 1 frog and 1 mammal, all found in my own backyard (I never left our property). Luckily, we have a number of habitats, which helps for sure, including: a pond with some cattails, grassy meadows, lots of shrubby edges, an overgrown field, and forest. Returning to my studio the next day, I set about editing the recordings and throwing together a narrative, which I performed off-the-cuff, without writing down any script. I rather like the result … uncomplicated, straightforward, and without too much talking. I was lucky to have gotten so many recordings, which makes for a compelling little bird walk, so suitable for celebrating the dawn chorus on an early spring day.
