Recorded over a number of days in Kubah National Park, Sarawak (Borneo), this album captures some of the incredible soundscapes of the tropical rainforest. Each day, the rhythms of frogs, birds, cicadas, katydids and crickets fill the humid air. Most intense and unique of all the soundscapes is Kubah’s dusk chorus, which has to be one of the richest bioacoustic experiences on the face of the planet!
In 2014, track six 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. 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’!
The 15 minute track “Dusk by the Frog Pond” is track six on this album, but also available as a single track download – http://wildambience.com/dusk-by-the-frog-pond/
