Who I am
|Desconocido - Unknown / ?|
My name is Juan Pablo. I was born in Uruguay in 1986 and have been blind since birth.
Since childhood I have always had contact with birds. I appreciate them in an unusual way.
Not being able to see birds doesn't mean I don't know them. I observe them in a different way, through their voices.
On this site I intend to showcase the work I have been undertaking with birds since 2003 -when the PHD Santiago Claramunt invited me to record a Tawny-bellied Seedeater (The occurrence of Sporophila hypochroma and S. hypoxantha in Uruguay) with a unknow to me Marantz PMD222 recorder and a parabola, with the single statement: "This is the REC button"-, which since 2005 is stored in the "Fonoteca Neotropical Jacques Vielliard" (FNJV) -old "Arquivo Sonoro Neotropical" (ASN)- of the Campinas University - UNICAMP.
A new stage began in 2011. After several years of recording in mono format (single channel), was time to go a step further. From now on, you can enjoy all the wonderful benefits of stereo recordings through the publication of environmental recordings, better known as soundscapes. I continue publishing some mono recordings. Meanwhile, this will be an exception to the rule.
Best wishes Juan P. Culasso .
One of the first tests with my new parabola ....Unforgettable, new experiences, new conditions, new situations. Where: 'Caraça' well-preserved natural park in Minas Gerais. When: One autumn morning, very early.
This is the beginning of another stage, with more professional results, improving the quality, both for the equipments as well as the experience that gives the time.... and the more time passes, the more absorbing and surprising it becomes.
