Bernie Krause's Great Animal Orchestra

Lead in text: 
Bernie Krause was an early pioneer of electronic music. Eventually his interests turned to the chorus of the outdoors. He started recording soundscapes and has amassed an extensive collection of nature sounds. Studying those sounds has given him insight into how animals communicate with one another and the origins of music. In this interview with Anne Strainchamps, Krause describes and plays some selections from his unique collection of sounds.
