Into a Wild Sanctuary
EPUB EBook by Bernie Krause
EBook DescriptionA beautiful, lovely book—but you need to know what you're getting into. Into a Wild Sanctuary EPUB EBook
This book is a mix of autobiographic narrative (lots of it about the folk music scene in the 50s and 60s), nature writing (what it's like recording sounds in various parts of the world), occasional entries from journals (including a long recounting of a humpback whale caught upstream from the San Francisco bay), and thoughtful musings on humanity's relationship to nature and sound. All of that combines to make the book feel occasionally uneven, with moments that defy expectation or suddenly shift genre.
But in the end, that isn't a bad thing. Krause, while perhaps not a beautiful stylist of words (this isn't a literary memoir), is inspiring in part because of the variety of experiences and stories he shares. His thinking on the relationship of sounds to each other is brilliant and lovely, and his emphasis on quiet contemplation always strikes me as wise. Like this book?
