A video/story I found relevant

So Krys made a comment today about the different sounds nature may make and we are completely inept at hearing. It made me think of a short story written by Rhaod Dahl about a man who tries to develop a machine that translates animal noises into audible human sound. He gets some rather interesting results in the process. I was unable to find an online version of the text, but I was able to find a couple video versions of it, some of which are pretty good. 

Some of the quotes in this one seemed highly relevant to me, and I wanted to share them with you all. Thanks!
