Dawn Chorus is a unique Citizen Science and Arts Project.
By combining science and arts, Dawn Chorus seeks to open up people's eyes, ears and hearts to give nature back her voice. Everyone is invited to experience and record the dawn chorus on their doorstep, in the worldwide bird chorus on www.dawn-chorus.org.
The Dawn Chorus App provides an easy-to-use, standardised recording process, and encourages you to add notes or express your creativity by uploading a photo, thoughts, or even a poem. “Sonic Feather” is a novel media arts feature, which lets you transform each of your collected sound recordings into an individual piece of art.
Each recording is added to a global sound map, and a worldwide acoustic database for future scientific studies about birdsong, noise and biodiversity – but also as a source for a variety of artistic projects.
The app also works offline. The data is stored locally on the smartphone and can be uploaded later when you are connected to the internet.
Dawn Chorus is a joint project of BIOTOPIA – Naturkundemuseum Bayern and Landesbund für Vogelschutz (LBV).
