Acoustic Ecology, as defined by the Canadian Association for Sound Ecology (CASE) "is the study of the relationship between living organisms and their sonic environment (or soundscape)".
I use a Zoom H4n field recorder. Influences include my previous teacher Dr. Derek Charke, as well masterclasses with acousmatic composers Dr. Steven Naylor and Hildegard Westerkamp (cofounder of the World Soundscape Project).
Below are samples of sounds I've recorded:
