Bernie Krause

We celebrate Earth Day with renowned natural sound recordist Bernie Krause. He talks about his early career in professional music and how he made the transition to naturalist and bio-acoustitian. Krause will take us on a sonic tour to some of his favorite wilderness areas.  He talks about his new book "The Great Animal Orchestra: Finding the Origins of Music in the World's Wild Places."  This Sunday 4/21 7 am and on Monday 4/22 9 pm

In this episode of Crosscurrents, we go on a sonic tour of sounds from everyday life, led by bioacoustician and soundscape ecologist Bernie Krause.

Part I.

Bernie Krause says if we really listen, we’ll hear an animal orchestra out there and we need to protect it.

“Fully 50 percent of the habitats I’ve recorded are now quiet. It tells us about so many things about ourselves and how we’re doing in relationship to the rest of the living world around us,” says Krause.
