I am hoping to interview Bernie Krause as my primary source. He and his wife requested that I read his book “The Great Animal Orchestra” in order to have a fruitful conversation (also to avoid redundancies).
Hopefully I will be able to meet with him by next Wednesday. It is still up in the air. I may have to reach out to some of my other sources such as Lawrence English.
This is a short clip of Rodeo Lagoon at sunset where I gathered sounds from the weak current flowing into the rocks as well as some recordings of wind through tree branches and bushes.
This another gallery consisting of unaltered images of various lush natural places in the Bay Area.
Have begun gathering video and audio of the Marin Headlands.
Went over the weekend, around sunset, with a goPro and some audio recording equipment. Got some nice footage of waves, creeks, hillsides etc… will probably need a book of Northern California wildlife/plant-life in order to identify more clearly the sounds and visuals I am gathering.
Have received correspondence from Bernie Krause and Lawrence English for interviews in the future. Now have to begin a list of questions and figure out the best way to communicate; skype, e-mail, phone etc…
This is a link to the Wildlife Sound Recording Society, an organization that was founded in 1968 and sets out to provide an enormous collection of strictly wildlife recordings. Though one must become a member to explore the full wealth of their collection, they are an important educational organization for the UK.
This is a link to the British Library of Sound where you can explore collections of sounds expressing many facets of culture; Different styles of Music, vocal accents, oral history, environmental sounds, and even the history of sound recording.
