Grampians Stream - Album Cover

Album Description

Recorded in the heart of The Grampians, this single track album captures the sounds of a rushing stream with subtle birdsong from the surrounding forest.

Recorded during a breezy afternoon by a river in Grampians National Park, Victoria, the birdsong on this particular album is subtle and mostly in the background, with the stream being the prominent feature. With the natural ‘white-noise’ from the rushing stream in the foreground, this recording is ideal for noise-masking, as a sleeping aid, and for sufferers of tinnitus.

Track Listing

Track 1 - Grampians Stream (41:25)

Each track on this album was recorded at the same location and features the foreground sound of clean water flowing down a stream in the foothills of the Grampians mountain range.

In the first half of the album, Yellow-faced & White-naped Honeyeaters can be heard in the forest canopy, while Grey Fantails and Striated Thornbills flitter about in mid-storey. At 4:35 a pair of Gang-gang Cockatoos fly overhead making their distintive creaky calls. From around 19:00 – 32:00, a few gusts of an afternoon breeze blow through the forest, while Superb Fairywrens call and sing in the undergrowth. After 32:30, the breeze drops off and the forest is still again. Yellow-tailed Black Cockatoos fly low over the canopy, while New Holland Honeyeaters & Eastern Spinebills call occasionally from streamside flowering shrubs. If you listen carefully during the second half of this final track, you can hear the slow, soft ‘oom-oom-oom’ calls of a Common Bronzewing.

Bird species heard on this album include:

Yellow-tailed Black Cockatoo, Gang-gang Cockatoo, Common Bronzewing, Superb Fairywren, Grey Fantail, Striated Thornbill, Yellow-faced Honeyeater, New Holland Honeyeater, Eastern Spinebill, Noisy Miner, White-throated Treecreeper & Spotted Pardalote.
