Digital Listening

We invite you to explore a sampling of non-human sounds like you’ve never heard before, captured by researchers and digital listening technologies as discussed in The Sounds of Life. These tools have revolutionized the way we connect with the world around us, allowing us to experience non-human conversations with astonishing clarity and detail.

Below you will find singing whales, rumbling elephants, buzzing bees, the chatter of bats, murmurs of plants and rainforests, even the humming earth itself! We have assembled a small sample of what awaits you by reading the The Sounds of Life. Listen with newly awakened ears to Earth’s enchanted chorus. Enjoy.
