  • In Kentucky: Active Nature, get a collection of the energetic ambiences from the forests and meadows of the American South. Hear the lively sounds of spring songbirds, frogs, and crickets as the longer spring days fuel the ecosystem. Hear Barred Owl rap battles and dueling coyote packs. Hear the sweet singing of Wood Thrush and resonant ribbits of chorusing spring frogs. Hear visceral branch creaks and the lush 30+ minute dawn choruses.
  • This library is packed full of tracks with vibrant flora and fauna from the lively spring landscapes of Kentucky.  This area of the Eastern US is swamped with noise pollution, so it is extremely difficult to record nature. Over 95% of the recordings I made on this trip were ruined by noise. Thankfully I was still able to capture some lovely soundscapes in that remaining 5%. Thanks for listening.
