BioAcoustic Research & Development (BARD) is a unique partnership between musician Lisa Spector and sound researcher Joshua Leeds. The psychoacoustic principles informing BARD music derives from Joshua’s therapeutic soundwork with human-based medical and neurodevelopmental experts.
For animal music programs, BARD collaborates with veterinarians, behaviorists, and trainers. Consequently, these unique programs employ sophisticated techniques from the disparate fields of sound therapy and animal behavioral training.
The BARD mission is to provide audio programs specifically for the health, well-being, and longevity of our animal and human friends.
Below is a kitchen table video conversation recorded in October, 2012. Lisa and Joshua discuss the 2003 creation of their partnership.
