Sounding Nature: Listening to How Nature Sounds without Humans

Stuart Fowkes had it right when he said that humans are a really, really noisy bunch. Living in an urban area, you would hear all sorts of sounds from humans and things made by humans.

But in this new project by Cities and Memory, a global collaborative sound project created by Fowkes, they try to step away from humans and focus on areas where the natural world is undisturbed.

Sounding Nature is the biggest global collection of nature sounds, featuring nearly 500 sounds from 55 countries, from jungles to glaciers to underwater shrimp recordings.
The map has two parts: the field recording of the sound itself, and then the musical remix it inspired.
