Bernie Krause is one of the world's experts in natural sound. In this sound-enhanced eBook short, we take a glimpse into his new book, THE GREAT ANIMAL ORCHESTRA, an intensely personal narrative of life as it hits the ears, and of the planet's deeply connected natural sounds and music. This short focuses on wild sounds in the air.
Krause shows that just as streetlights drown out the stars, human noise is vanishing the sounds of nature--and the very soundscapes that help us understand how wild sound and music connect.
THE GREAT ANIMAL ORCHESTRA is based on a lifetime of study and thousands of hours of the author's recordings of the wild. This short opens up just a bit of it, in words and rich sound.
