Welcome to New Dimensions Radio!
Bernie Krause has traipsed through the world recording the natural sounds of wild places. Here he tells of his adventures of recording a wild jaguar in the Brazilian rainforest and the nearly extinct proboscis monkeys of Borneo. Hear his thrilling and enlightening story of how the tribal elder, Marcus Wilson, taught him about the origins of music. It comes from the natural world. Krause tells us, “If you want spiritual and emotional healing, go out in the natural world and sit there and listen.” He also adds that in this culture which is polluted by a cacophony of sound, trying to find a quiet place may be difficult. He describes how animals combine their sounds in a way to render a complex symphony with rhythms, harmonies, and counter rhythms. (hosted by Jeff Wessman)
