Album Info

Recorded in Maliau Basin Conservation Area in central Sabah, this album features subtle forest ambience along with background birdsong and the natural white noise of a distant mountain stream.

Maliau Basin is a spectacular area of pristine rainforest deep in Borneo’s interior where a range of micro-habitats can be found including lowland tropical rainforest, montane (hill) rainforest and rare montane heath (kerangas) forest. This recording was made in an area of lower hill rainforest early in the morning.
