A BBC podcast about the science of acoustic ecology.

“We look at beautiful scenery like this, but we rarely listen…Soundscape ecology is looking at the full acoustic environment.”

An article about how noise pollution is impacting our ability to hear the sounds of nature.

“This gift that we are born with–to reach out and hear things hundreds of metres away, all these incredible sounds–is in danger of being lost through a generational amnesia. There is a real danger, both of loss of auditory acuity, where we are exposed to noise for so long that we stop listening, but also a loss of listening habits, where we lose the ability to engage with the environment the way we were built to.”

An interview with LinnDrum inventor Roger Linn.

“I tend to like music with what I call a high GIPM factor, which is short for Good-Ideas-Per-Minute.”
