No other sense can trigger memories and influence our experience as sound does.
Experience it yourself
One of the experiences I do includes listening stations where I may have aquatic microphones in a pond; a parabolic dish to bring in sounds closely; soundscape mics to increase volume of an area in stereo; or even tree canopy mics where small groups enjoy the sounds of the canopy while relaxing in hammock. Contact me if interested in creating such an experience.

As Murray Schafer once stated "if a picture is worth a 1000 words than a sound is worth a 1000 pictures". Taking advantage of such a powerful sense can greatly enhance the nature experience. In my own research, I have found that people who utilize music in nature can create an experience of 'somehthing more than the composite parts'.
Soundscapes are also used to collect species inventory over time along with many other interests. Over the last few years, I have been involved with a land trust (MMLT) to collect yearly recordings that can then be analyzed with state-of-the-art software to help isolate sounds from hundreds of hours (and GBs) of sounds.
