I think I speak for most people when I say that the sounds animals can make are incredible! From communication, to mating, each animal’s call is unique to their species, and in some cases, distinct even to each individual animal. As humans, we also have a huge variety of sounds that we use in our daily lives. Communicating with each other via talking, expressing danger with screams, and creating repetitive patterns as forms of entertainment in music are just a few examples of the complexity of our sounds. Now, what would happen if human sounds and animal sounds collided?
Haley Shaw, known as @SoWylie on Tiktok, is a music producer and sound designer. She was inspired by my personal favorite owl, the northern saw-whet owl, and how delicate their calls sound. She decided to combine her talent for music with the naturally occurring saw-whet call to create an amazing beat. Check out the video below!
