Experience: Chad Clifford Became interested in Soundscaping for the collection of data of species density and diversity for local land trust. Over the last few years I have led the Mississippi-Madawaska Land Trust’s soundscape monitoring program. I am also keen on making microphone systems for exploring the aesthetics of nature.
