  • In Iceland: Quiet Nature, get a collection of serene ambiences from Iceland. Hear the immense sparseness of resonant fjords. Hear massive moss covered lavaflows that envelop your senses and transport you to the landscapes of a long lost time. Hear the tranquil beauty of sprawling tundra grass untouched by human hands during days of endless light. Hear lonesome songbirds singing softly and distant loons eerily wailing.
  • This library is packed full of tracks with sparse flora and fauna from the austere landscapes of the arctic. I feel a powerful sense of awe after visiting these landscapes. I hope the sounds help to re-wild your ears as they did mine. Thanks for listening.
