DUNN, DAVID: Why do whales and children sing? CD and book
The CD is an early pure collection of unmediated and beautifully recorded world soundscapes, natural rather than urban. The subtitle says it all: 'A guide to listening in nature'. Released by Acoustic Ecology themselves, this is a statement of a base position. The book, a 98pp paperback A5 is a mixture of practical notes, description and acoustic ecology manifesto. It's important for that. But things have got more complicated since. Still this is the groundwork. And beautifully done.
