Welcome to Earth Recordings

Support for EarthRecordings.org was provided by the College of Arts and Sciences at the University of Virginia and was developed during my sesquicentennial leave. The purpose of this website is to expand my research as a sound designer through field recording. A primary goal of this endeavor is to explore HRTF sound recording.

I invite you to share this project with anyone and encourage downloading and use of these recordings. If you are able to use any of these recordings, please contact me and let me know how you use them. I am very interested in your comments.

The sounds on this site retain their original recording qualities; however, minimal limiting and equalization were used for optimization.
