Selected excerpts (23 pages) from The Great Animal Orchestra-enhanced with nine rare audio clips from the author's collection: recordings of wildlife on Volcano Arenal in Costa Rica and in Yellowstone National Park, the changes in biophony as glaciers melt, the stark differences in sound among rainforests, deserts, and open tundra, temperature-telling crickets, and the dawn chorus of the site of the Chernobyl disaster.

Bernie Krause is one of the world's experts in natural sound. In this sound-enhanced e-book short, we get a glimpse of his new book The Great Animal Orchestra, an intensely personal narrative of life as it hits the ears, and of the planet's deeply connected natural sounds and music. This e-short focuses on heat-related sounds.
