    Wow! Thanks for sharing this Claudia, you’ll notice a number of posts here tagged with SONIFICATION (http://portfolio.newschool.edu/sound/tag/sonification)
    and this fits nicely into that grouping.

    I find it baffling that they didn’t credit R. Murray Schafer here as he coined the term Soundscape in the first place and was the voice that brought many of these ideas to the world’s attention. Additionally the term Soundscape Ecologist isn’t a particularly far cry from Schafers own term Acoustic Ecologist.

    These things aside though, it is a fascinating idea and also points to some of the limits of current technology to handle the massive amount of data that the project will provide. THANKS!

    You’re welcome and thanks for the tags. I was reading another last night that did mention Schaefer and had very interesting concerns about perceiving environment; I will link to it when I have a chance.
