Last month, the CBC began to broadcast continuous natural soundscape recordings on its Galaxie pay-audio service channels. Eighteen of these recordings were mixed on-site and in real time, thanks to a delivery system supplied and installed by Wild Sanctuary. This digital audio system — dubbed ISS (Intelligent Show System) — was designed to deliver high-quality audio content nonredundantly; this installation is the first in pay-audio service to feature this type of performance model.

“While the ISS is a multifunction show control system designed for a variety of media delivery uses, this particular CBC application is formatted to present natural soundscapes naturally, and is programmed for related random occurences, just as events occur in the wild,” said Dr. Bernie Krause, president of Wild Sanctuary. “The non-repeating feature lends heightened realism to our environmental recordings and provides a continually fresh and highly genuine audio experience for the listener.”
