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: Thank you, Jim. That's a great idea. But for many reasons, not all of them immediately intuitive, we'd prefer to see the archive housed at an institution that more actively supports newer interdisciplinary approaches to Soundscape Ecology and whose operational models have historically concentrated on a wider scope of field recording.
