Dawn Chorus is a unique Citizen Science and Arts Project.

By combining science and arts, Dawn Chorus seeks to open up people's eyes, ears and hearts to give nature back her voice. Everyone is invited to experience and record the dawn chorus on their doorstep, and share it with the world.

The Dawn Chorus App provides an easy-to-use, standardised recording process, and encourages you to add notes or express your creativity by uploading a photo, thoughts, or even a poem. “Sonic Feather” is a novel media arts feature, which lets you transform each of your collected sound recordings into an individual piece of art.

Each recording is added to a global sound map, and a worldwide acoustic database for future scientific studies about birdsong, noise and biodiversity – but also as a source for a variety of artistic projects.

The app also works offline. The data is stored locally on the smartphone and can be uploaded later when you are connected to the internet.

Dawn Chorus is a joint project of BIOTOPIA – Naturkundemuseum Bayern and Foundation Arts and Nature.

Easy, Fun, and Worthwhile

This brand new app makes participating in the Dawn Chorus Project easy and fun. The interface is intuitive, its integration with iOS seamless, and the opportunity to contribute to an international community science project is inspring. I am reviewing it and the Project on the website, and will give it the highest rating. Congratulations to everyone involved in its development and the use of the data it generates.
