When was the last time you were able to kick back under the stars and listen to the earth breath? To get away from the city, with its constant bustle and hum, and discover a quiet place where the only thing you have to feel is the planets gravity pulling you into its embrace?

Here is your chance to leave it all behind, put on your wolf suit and hear the wild.

The OMSI planetarium is teaming up with Echo Collector Events and KBOO 90.7 FM to bring you “Hear and There: Audio Postcards from Earth”. This all ages and ability inclusive event features field recordings in immersive 5.1 surround sound from scientists and artists, local and abroad, from some of the world’s most remote locations. Come listen to these places just as they are while sitting under the shifting stars from that time and place in nature's memory. If you’re here, we’ll take you there.

The Mastermind/Organizer:

Nikki Martin of Echo Collector Events is a sound artist, storyteller, and production professional who specializes in environmental sound design and working with non-profits and independent artists. Her great passions are nature, education, and providing professionally run event spaces where less-heard voices take center stage.

The Guru/Collaborator:

Bill McQuay of Eco Location Sound is a career veteran in field recording and sound production. He is a long-time NPR contributor, independent audio producer, and his work has received numerous national recognitions including a National Academy of Sciences Award and a Grammy.
