Nature's Music: Knowing the Natural World Through Sound

Aldo Leopold once wrote, "The life of every river sings its own song." From animal imitations in early Vaudeville to high-tech recordings of whales to nature-inspired music, countless writers, musicians, scientists, and others have sought to know nature through its sounds. As we survey some of these examples, we explore not only how the natural world sounds, but also how sound technologies have shaped the acts of knowing and listening.
