News, news, the heck with news, let's go outdoors, Alaska, which really is the great outdoors, but getting cold these days, the birds migrating to the lower 48, and that's why producer Martyn Stewart went in June, he was going to record birds. He set out four microphones over a 500-yard area in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge back in June and this is what he got.

Just recording1 up is a joy, you know, it's just fantastic. 24 hours of light and you've got these fantastic sounds. At any given time, you've got birds' sound all around you. I was in a tent, in a yellow tent, I felt like I was sleeping in an embryo2, I was inside an egg.

It seemed to be that when the sun went further north, it never actually set behind any of the mountains, it was still in the sky. So it was circling all the time, 24 hours a day. But from 12 o'clock to 6 o'clock in the morning, I found it was the most dense3 part of the day for the sound.

(The) plane lands, drops you off, leaves you with all the equipment and then, off they go. And then you quickly realize that where you are, the chances of seeing anybody, you know, it's so remote. Probably on the second day I walked out with all my equipment across the tundra4. The tundra is very difficult to walk on, you know, you walk in with these boots and you've got these tufts of grass and stuff in you, you really do find difficult footing. em, so I'd walk a mile away from my base camp, and drop my microphones and the recorders and the rest of it, and then, over the horizon comes Mr. Grizzly5 Bear, and I realize that I can't stay there to record so I've got to walk back another difficult mile, err6, so that Mr. Bear can get out of the way. You know, you just get out of the way because you're basically standing7 in his dinner plate.

It kinda takes you back to your primal8 self in a way, you can hear your, your heart beating, you can feel your pulse running through, you can basically feel your blood going up and down your arms. Em, it's an incredible feeling. I've never felt like that in any other country I've been into. It's like being in a dream, and, but there's nobody there to wake you up. And so this dream just carries on and on and on, until you decide that you've had enough and you go away.

Martyn Stewart, contributes to the new book, Arctic Wings, it features a CD of his recordings9 and thanks to Jeff Rice of Hearing Voices, the Hearing Voices' radio collector.

Thanks for listening, we also offer world story of the day and business story of the day from our website, npr.org/podcast.
