Natural soundscape archive repository

We are actively looking for an academic home for my natural sound archive, one that will support (1) an academic chair specifically dedicated to the field of Soundscape Ecology, (2) a named Center for Soundscape Studies, and (3) the Global Soundscape Project, one that embraces and connects a citizen-science community to that of the more formal realm of scientific enquiry.

The archive description is available upon request. chirp@wildsanctuary.com

  • Jul 22 2013: Great talk, but wish it was longer. I am interested in sound recording but not well equipped to do it. Your talk has renewed my interest in trying it again. As for a place for your archive I believe that Cornell University's Lab of Ornithology would be an excellent choice. The lab is heavily involved in citizen science. I am not sure who to contact, but the web site is here, http://www.birds.cornell.edu/ and I'm sure you could decide the best contact from there.
