The Great Animal Orchestra

Just finished Bernie Krause's fantastic book "The Great Animal Orchestra - Finding the Origins of Music in the World's Wild Places."  Lots of fun anecdotes about recording the world's vanishing wild soundscapes and some sad relevations about how our world is changing for the worse.  For all those plugged in to their iphones or ipads, pull them out of your ears and listen to the natural sounds around you before they are all gone.  Highly recommended!  Nice book review in The Telegraph.
