The invisible symphony


Chan, Cheong Jan and Jahnichen, Gisa (2013) The invisible symphony. In: Nature's Yield and Wonders of Art (NYAWA)13: Insects. Universiti Putra Malaysia Press, Serdang, Selangor, pp. 76-77. ISBN 9789679603484


The continuous presence of the mass of insects in our living environment cannot be effectively seen with humans' limited view span, but could be heard clearly if we pay attention to the "audible world" that surround us. "Soundscape", simply the panoramic photograph of sound in an environment, offers another gateway to examine the ecological system. We are informed of the realities revealed through biophony(sound of the organisms), geophony(sound of the nature like wind streams) and anthrophony(man-made sounds including automobiles, machines as well as music)
