Navigating Our Acoustic Environment Through Echolocation
An amazing tale of a cyclist who finds new ways to move through California.
Paying attention to the acoustic ecology which we inhabit is a growing area of interest for some authorities, but there are other people among us who appreciate the sonic textures of our environments through different means.
One instance is the amazing story of Daniel Kish, a blind cyclist who navigates his journeys around California completely via sound.
“Kish goes riding around town using a method called echolocation. As Kish rides his bike around he makes a clicking sounds, and the clicks then bounce back, allowing Kish to create a mental image of his surroundings.”
