Audubon Corkscrew Swamp
2000: Naples, FL
A complex Non-Redundant Environmental Sounds Exhibit
Soundscape Designer: Wild Sanctuary
Working with natural sound recordist Bernie Krause, BBI developed a patented, non-redundant, computerized playback system, Intelligent Sound System TM, for the Audubon Corkscrew Swamp. This computerized system runs complex soundscapes with hundreds of individual speakers, creating dynamic impressions of nature, including crickets chirping and birds flying overhead.
Another use for these systems are visual ID stations where the visitor can see an image of the animal that is vocalizing as the sound plays.
