Abstract

Since the beginning of the lockdown response to the coronavirus pandemic the soundscape of the world around us has changed dramatically.

Outdoors or in, there was a notable drop in ambient background noise that is almost exclusively down to the reduction in sound caused by humans or to use its formal term, anthropophony.

In our visually dominated society this provided a rare treat for the ears, specifically the opportunity to clearly hear the sounds created by other living creatures that inhabit the world (biophony) and the non-biological sounds of the outdoors (geophony).
