‘Deep Listening to Nature’

Thu 23 November at 3:00 pm - 6:00 pm


Lithgow Library is delighted to host Andrew Skeoch for a fascinating presentation.

Andrew is an educator, author, naturalist, environmental thinker, and one of Australia’s best- known nature sound recordists.

Over the last thirty years, he has documented the sounds of wild environments around the planet, and through his label Listening Earth, published over 100 recordings featuring habitats from most continents.

Andrew’s talk will feature vibrant recordings and spectrogram analysis that shows the beauty of birdsong. He will guide the audience into hearing the languages of nature; developing your auditory awareness, identifying species by ear, recognising behaviours and repertoire, and finding empathy with the voices of other beings.
