Andrew Skeoch is an educator, naturalist, environmental thinker, and one of Australia's best-known nature sound recordists.

Together with his partner, photographer Sarah Koschak, he established the independent label Listening Earth in 1993 to publish immersive nature soundscape recordings. This work has since taken him around the world, documenting the sounds of iconic landscapes and threatened ecosystems. The resulting recordings have been published as likely the largest catalogue of their kind; over 100 nature albums available for online download, free streaming and via digital music platforms.

Andrew's first-hand experiences of natural habitats from rainforests to the tundra, combined with deep reflection on how to listen to nature, inform his educative work. Through a sharing of ideas, supported by spectacular recordings and visual analysis, he seeks to address the fundamental question of our human relationship with the living biosphere.

This personal yet broad perspective has lead to invitations to talk to a wide range of audiences. In 2017 he presented at TedX in Canberra, delivering a succinct talk consolidating his key understandings. One of his several presentations at the Woodford Folk Festival was recorded by the ABC and broadcast on its 'Big Ideas' program. He has been a keynote speaker at academic conferences, and regularly teaches at university, schools and for community organisations.

Andrew is also president of the Australian Wildlife Sound Recording Group, the premier association of nature field recordists in this country, and co-ordinates its biennial workshop which encourages skills and passion in a new generation of enthusiasts.

As much as anything, Andrew describes himself as a listener, hearing his place in the world.

"I feel that we need to listen to the natural world afresh, and hear ourselves as part of it. This connection, both personal and social, is a celebration of our relationship to all life, and richly informs our role as caring custodians of a fragile biosphere."
