Greetings everyone! I’m pleased to announce that I’ve just published Yasuni Soundscapes, a fully-binaural, 30-minute narrated podcast featuring 23 recordings I made in early November at Sani Lodge, in the Yasuni National Park region of Ecuador’s lowland Amazon rainforest. In this immersive 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.
Hi all! I am fresh back from Ecuador and excited to share soundscapes I recorded at the wonderful Sani Lodge, located along the Napo River about 50 miles downriver from Coca, Ecuador. I’ve posted 21 (so far) on SoundCloud … you can listen to them via the playlist below …
Spring Delights 2018 is a 24 minute podcast featuring immersive binaural recordings I gathered this year during the height of spring. This is the first of two or three podcasts that will celebrate this season’s work. To experience the incredible spaciousness of the recordings, please listen using headphones!
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. Nonetheless, I gathered recordings on four different days and I’ve put together this new fully binaural podcast … Delayed Spring … to celebrate what I found.
Listen now to an impromptu podcast where I share recordings of 26 species made in my own backyard on the morning of April 22, 2018. Such a wonderful celebration of sound!
Spring is just around the corner! Here in upstate New York, Jefferson’s Salamanders migrated less than a week ago, the woodpeckers are drumming like crazy and I heard a cardinal singing in my yard this very morning. How exciting this is … such a delicious taste of things to come!
Light rain falls upon an overgrown meadow shortly after sunrise. Rivulets wind across the clearing, draining away excess water from the receding storm. The sun, peeping through the clouds, throws a broad beam of light across the clearing as birds burst into song in excited anticipation of the coming day.
Hi Friends! I’ve just published Meltwater Melodies, an 11-minute binaural podcast recounting my visit to Oregon’s Cascade Mountains high country in mid-June of last year. My adventure only lasted a day, but I managed to snag a number of wonderful spacious recordings featuring various birds and frogs, along with the soothing sounds of meltwater brooks. You’ll hear songs and calls of the following, listed in the order of appearance: Hermit Thrush, Red-breasted Nuthatch, American Crow, woodpecker drums, Varied Thrush, American Robin, Sierra Chorus Frog, Common Nighthawk, Dark-eyed Junco, and more.
Don your headphones and join me on a windy ridge in Great Smoky Mountains National Park! Experience and enjoy a soothing binaural immersion featuring a panoply of bird songs typical of high altitude spruce-fir forest in the southern Appalachians.
During all my travels, I’m constantly on the lookout (or rather, “earout”) for the most beautiful robin song. Over the years, I’ve gathered dozens of binaural soundscapes featuring this delicacy, and some are quite nice to behold. But I do believe that the song I recorded at Cranberry Glades Botanical Area in late May of the year 2000 is the finest of them all.
