Quotes

If a photo is worth a thousand words, a soundscape is worth a thousand pictures.
- Bernie Krause, Soundscapes - the sounds of the natural world

The symphony of natural sounds within our national parks is an important natural resource and a critical component of the ecological communities that parks seek to preserve. Understanding the role of sound and acoustics in a healthy ecosystem is critical to their effective management and protection.
- World Listening Day, National Parks Service

Ear to the Earth

Ear of the Earth - @ear2earth

The theme of Ear to the Earth 2012 is The North American Soundscape, a portrait of North America in sound, with words, images, and an online symposium on sound art and the environment. In time, the festival will develop as an ongoing process. Submissions of compositions, sound files, and other materials and/or ideas will be posted and available on the Ear to the Earth website as the festival takes its form. The festival will become 'active' with events, virtual and real, at three times: Earthday, April 22; World Listening Day, July 18; and during the month of October.

Murray Schafe coined the term soundscape in 1977, has urged the collection of natural sounds threatened with extinction. Soundscape ecologists now record, study, and store the sounds of the wilderness.
