Bagging Wild Sounds, part 2

July 24, 2008

This outings program is part two of a report on a trip to record nature sounds. You've got to be totally quiet; stand like a statue. And then, if you're in the right place at the right time, you'll capture your sound. (Part one is here.)

Our assistant producer Kate Taylor reports on her visit to the annual field recording workshop of the Nature Sounds Society. She tells her story with the help of:

  • Alton Byrd, a nature sounds hobbyist from Berkeley, California.
  • Martyn Stewart, a professional nature sounds recordist for the BBC.
  • Chris Bell, a museum curator from Sydney, Australia.
  • Hundreds of birds, amphibians, and a few domesticated mammals.
  • Gina Farr, a multimedia producer from Marin Country, California.

You can get tips from Dan Dugan on recording nature sounds by listening to our edition number 90, Listening to Parks.

WildeBeat Members can download an extended interview with Martyn Stewart and additional extended wild sound recordings from WildeBeat Insider web pages.
