Depends whether you=92re trying to reproduce redundant (looped) or non-redu=
ndant programs, Fred. Also, whether you=92re looking to offer species-speci=
fic examples or entire soundscapes (biophonies and/or geophonies). Have don=
e many of those installations worldwide. Contact me off-list and I=92ll be =
happy to assist.

ponds, mesquite forest and desert scrub.
