Recently this track 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 beauty of the natural sounds of our planet is expressed in its 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’.

1. Dusk by the Frog Pond (15:22)
This is the same as Track 5 on the album ‘Rhythm of Kubah‘. Available here as a single track download. Recorded by a small natural pond in the rainforest just before dark, this track is teeming with life and reflects the rich biodiversity of Borneo’s tropical rainforest. Various frog species call from the edge of the water including the unusual up-slurred ‘wrooerk’ of the Mahogany Frog. Empress Cicadas and other insects pulsate in the forest overhead and a few barbets and other birds still call in the fading light of the rainforest canopy.
