Recorded over a number of days in the beautiful Kubah National Park, Sarawak, Borneo, this album captures the incredible soundscapes of these tropical forests. Each day, the rhythms of frogs, birds, cicadas, katydids and crickets echo through Kubah. But most outstanding and unique of all, is the dusk chorus, which has to be one of the richest bioacoustic experiences on the face of the planet.
Recently Track 6 of this album “Dusk by the Frog Pond” was voted the ‘The Most Beautiful Sound in the World‘ in a competition sponsored by Beautiful Now, The Sound Agency & Soundcloud. I feel that there were a number of other entries featuring the sounds of nature which were also worthy winners of that competition. The natural sounds of our planet are expressed in infinite variety. I’m delighted that this sound was a favourite, and I’m sure many would agree that it is just one of many ‘most beautiful sounds in the world’.
