Encounters :: Public Radio Takes You Into The Wilderness Thanks To Richard Nelson

September 9, 2010 Leave a comment

Richard Nelson, a cultural anthropologist and nonfiction writer works to add to the natural sound library.

Encounters.

Richard Nelson and his team travel the Alaskan wilderness in search of sounds.  Ever been curious about the sound a swarm of mosquitoes, one large enough to drain a grown man of blood in 3 hours, sounds like? Or wondered what noise the mother grizzly might make to ward off another bear that’s getting to close to her cub?

This makes a great show to throw onto your mp3 player for that long morning commute.  It will make you forget your concrete prison.
