How Thomas Rex Beverly is Capturing the Sounds of Disappearing Glaciers



  • Here's a video about my adventures in Greenland that I made for Sennheiser's YouTube channel. 
  • I hope you enjoy the soundscapes and stories. Thanks for listening. 


Embark on an auditory expedition to Greenland with renowned sound recordist Thomas Rex Beverly as he delves into the world of natural soundscapes.

Join us on a breathtaking journey as we traverse the enchanting fjords of Greenland, all through the magic of Thomas' field recordings. With over a decade of experience as a nature sound recordist and composer, Thomas guides us through a realm of field recording where we don't commonly look to for sound: Glaciers. With the help of his Sennheiser gear, including the Sennheiser MKH8040 cardioid microphone, Sennheiser MKH30 Figure-of-eight microphone, Sennheiser MKH 8020 Omni-Directional Microphone, and Sennheiser HD 280 Professional Monitoring Headphones, Thomas is on a mission to preserve the symphonies of nature's glaciers as they retreat at unprecedented rates.

Through his majestic field recordings, Thomas captures the sublime echoes of glaciers calving and the ethereal underwater melodies of icebergs. He even reveals the enchanting notes of an "ice xylophone," a rare and natural phenomenon brought to life through his unique skillset. The resonating power of Sennheiser's equipment ensures that every whisper and crescendo of these landscapes is faithfully conveyed to your ears.

Beverly's journey extends beyond capturing the awe-inspiring – it's a mission to raise awareness about the fragile ecosystems he immerses himself in. As you listen, you're not just immersed in the distant lands; you're compelled to care for them. With his team and Sennheiser field recording equipment as his trusty companions, Thomas inspires us to understand, appreciate, and conserve the very sounds that define our planet.

Join us in this sonic odyssey, an odyssey where Sennheiser and field recording come together to weave a tapestry of nature's most astonishing symphonies.
