Be a Nature Maestro!

SPEND A DAY IN GLACIER BAY, ALASKA!

Kids, parents, and educators, use an iPad and your imagination to create and share a day experience in Glacier Bay, Alaska.

Build audio-rich scenes called “Soundscapes,” using Christine Walker’s colorful illustrations, and Dennis Hysom’s animal and nature sounds recorded during the day in Glacier Bay, Alaska.

Be like Dennis! Compose, record, and share your unique Glacier Bay Soundscape using melodies, rhythms, and a two minute background ambience loop. Shake your iPad to erase your Soundscape and start again.

For the best audio experience, including stereo and panning, wear your headphones or earbuds. Pinch and zoom an animal to change its volume. Move an animal to the right or left to adjust its stereo effect. Use Compose to time when animals will sound in your Soundscape. For more fun, Record with Narration to mimic animal sounds or narrate a story about your Soundscape :)

Do you know what Glacier Bay animal makes a nest that can weight as much as a one-ton car, or which animal makes a distinctive whistling sound with its wings when it flies? To find out, listen to Dennis’s stories and fun facts. Glacier Bay provides environmental education, challenging memory games, and informational audio help for every button.

Animals and soundtracks in Glacier Bay include Humpback Whale, Steller Sea Lion, Harbor Seal, Bald Eagle, Barrow’s Goldeneye, Glaucous Gulls, Canada Goose, Glacier Calving, Cold Rain on Water, Humpback Whale Splash, and Humpback Whale Spout.

Email Dennis your most creative Soundscape (dennis@naturemaestro.com). Each week he features a few on the naturemaestro.com website.

Beautifully illustrated glacier bay setting with unique animals and the haunting sounds only heard in the far north. Exploring this setting takes you there. Great sound quality.

The sounds in this app are other-worldly. I love the crisp recordings of whales and seals carrying over the ice. Like a mini Alaskan nature cruise!

Self-Guided Exploration

Educational speaker

Nature Maestro lets kids guide their own way through Glacier Bay. Clicking on plant, animal and weather symbols the user can hear and orchestrate the sounds of the environment. So many details have been thought out-spreading the animals to a larger size give them louder noises, adding to the population from the symbols at the side to fill the bay. There are facts about each animal in the Maestro's pocket. there are challenges.symbols, as well as the music of the bay. My five and seven year old love the app and as an adult I appreciate the fine detail in the beautiful artwork supporting the exploration.
