Recorded in the darkness before dawn, deep in the rainforest of Cape York Peninsula, this album features an unusual, engaging nocturnal soundscape. One of the main watercourses flowing through the northern section of Iron Range National Park, the Claudie River is a haven for frogs, birds and other wildlife. The tracks on this album were extracted from recordings from two different locations along the Claudie River made on the same night.
Both tracks on the album feature similar species - the laughing, squelching calls of Australian Wood Frogs (Papurana daemeli) can be heard throughout, along with the gurgles and crowing of Orange-footed Scrubfowl. Occasionally, Marbled Frogmouths call from the forest mid-storey, making their bizarre gobbling calls. More information on each track and species recorded can be found below.
