A SOUND TELLS YOU MORE THAN A THOUSAND WORDS
juan pablo culasso
About 15+ years ago I work in the recording and divulgation of sounds recorded in nature. I studied together with the curator of the neotropical sound archive, Jacques Vielliard, at the State University of Campinas (UNICAMP) in Brazil.
I am currently a contributor to the sound collection Macaulay Library, the most important nature sounds library in the world.
In February 2014 I was the winner of the first edition of the SuperBrains program - broadcast by the National Geographic channel - for my ability to identify birds by their songs.
I have published more than 12 works portraying the sounds of birds in the Americas. I have also lectured and taught courses in various conferences focused on nature in general and birds in particular.
An event that marked my career was to be invited to Cornell University, in New York (United States), where I offered a conference entitled "A World of Sounds" in which sound landscapes of the places where I recorded were protagonists with its emblematic sounds
The recording technique that I chose for these sounds gives a very special detail.
For you to enjoy them I recommend you use headphones. It's like listening in HD.
I recorded this unique selection of sounds in Argentina, Brazil, Colombia and Paraguay.

Riqueza Natural award Colombia
In October 2020, MinComercio, Colombia Productiva and the Riqueza Natural program of the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), with the support of UNWTO, EAN University and Ruta N, announced the four winning initiatives within of which our project won:
'Establishment of the First Avitourism Route for People with Visual Disabilities in South America'
The projects highlight biodiversity and are focused on sustainable tourism that helps to cope with the economic impact of the covid-19 pandemic.
Our proposal seeks to find a new way of approaching, recognizing and linking with the nature of the population with visual disabilities. In addition, it contributes to the enjoyment and identification of the most representative bird species of the Andean region of Colombia, in the San Antonio Fog Forest - Km. 18, in Cali. The initiative transforms birdwatching tourism in Colombia into an inclusive activity and fosters new market niches. In addition, it takes into account the creation of a special sound guide for the visually impaired population and the training of tourist guides in the region.
An audio bird guide portrays the sounds of the birds of a country, a region, or just the birds that occur in a forest. In my career I have recorded many species of birds, mainly in Uruguay, Brazil, Paraguay and Colombia.
A soundscape allows you to get to know a place in a relaxing way.
Sound sensations cause peace and tranquility. Over the years I have recorded countless sunrises, sunsets, nights ... sounds that will make your stress level drop.
Preparing dialogues, restoring old recordings, mixing sounds for a telephone exchange ... Those are some examples of what I do, always with the highest levels of technology so that the result of the work is of the highest quality.
