Subject: [fcb-l] Sierra Nevada Ambient Sound Project
A good friend of mine has a kick starter campaign that has 5 days left to
go, and it is to fund a recording project that may be of interest to the
blind community. She is recording nature sounds in the Sierra Nevadas.
Supporters of the kick starter campaign at the $10 level will receive a copy
of the recordings.

More details are in the Email below and on the website. Please pass the info
on to the group.

We are on our way home from California. We had an amazing time in the Sierra
Nevadas recording nature sounds. Not only did we capture the sounds but also
the Geo coordinates of each location so people will know exactly where the
sound came from.
We had a great conversation with the national park supervisor at Devils
Postpile National Monument, and she asked to use our recordings in their
accessibility programs and their programs to preserve the natural
soundscape. This is a big priority for them. We are of course quite happy to
offer our recordings to them.
Perhaps some of your friends in the blind community would be interested in
these recordings. We’re at 60% funded and have 5 days to go with our
Kickstarter campaign. Anyone who would like a copy of the ambient nature
sound recordings can get a digital copy of them as a reward for backing the
project at the $10 level.
Some of the locations and sounds we’ve recorded include wind through the
trees and over the rocks at Devils Postpile, Rainbow falls from the top and
the bottom of the falls, birdsong in the meadow behind the ranger station at
Devils Postpile, the San Joaquin River, Soda Springs, birdsong and the
waterfall over the boulder with a hole in the middle at Sotcher lake,
Sherwin Creek, the meadow above Sherwin Creek, a native american cave site
along sherwin creek from inside the cave, winds and birdsong at native
american petroglyph sites in the volcanic tablelands, water, meadow and
birdsong sounds from Mammoth Lakes including Lake George, Lake Mary, TJ
Lake, Barrett Lake, Lake McCloud, river and birdsong in Tuolumne Meadows,
Snow Creek and just above Mirror Lake in Yosemite. We also spent a little
time in Newport Beach and recorded the waves at the Wedge. Most of the sound
clips are 5-8 minutes long, a few are around 3.
