I’m a true fan of visualizations of all kinds. But I still think plain audio should not be forgotten in our quest to understand and describe the world. Unfortunately most radio stations produce crap audio most or some of the time (drums as background to news, really?!). Luckily there is still music, and it’s easy to access nowadays, thanks to Spotify, Nokia Music etc. And some decent podcasts.

But how many people post their own audio online, compared to photos? Now FB for example seems not to even allow audio to be uploaded.


This specimen is collected using Zoom H2n on our porch. Tuula is knitting to the left, in the same direction as most birds are singing. To the front right some kids are kicking a football on the nearby small football field. The wind blows. One car passes by in the distance. And an airplane too. I’m sure you can hear the sun?
