Hear the Earth You're Missing
Threshold Shift is a collection of field recordings created and contributed by sound professionals, scientists, and student-citizens from across the globe. Why do we record? By many accounts, there is less than 2% of the Earth that is free from human-induced sound and that area is shrinking quickly. As we sit silently with our recorders, we can hear the heartbeat and breath of the Earth and find a more holistic place for humanity within it. We have attempted to leave these field recordings as raw and uninterrupted as possible to allow people to hear these places the way the recorder did. It is our hope that this series will increase awareness about acoustic ecology, bioacoustics, and sound preservation efforts as well as create some room in an otherwise human-crowded media landscape for nature to be on air.
Every 5th Saturday of the 2018 from 12-3 am. Long form episodes of immersive soundscape goodness.
Past episodes aired Fridays at 10:00-10:15am from Sept 1- Oct 27, 2017 as a feature of KBOO's 2017 Sound Artist in Residence Program.
