Australian Aboriginal Trackers can ‘read' the land like a book – that is, they can work out the route an animal or person has taken days before, simply by studying the tracks left behind in the environment that most of us would be totally unaware of. When asked how he tracked, Mitamirri, a notable Aboriginal tracker from the early 20th century, said "I never bend down low, just walk slow round and round until I see more.”
What I am proposing is sound tracking - this when you just walk slowly round and round in the environment, not really focusing on any sound to start with, just taking it all in until you hear more! If you find a sound trail then follow it to where it takes you and continue the process from there. There is no need to make a record of your sound tracking as it is already deeply embedded in your subconscious.
