AMB11 Northern Rockies: Quiet Nature

Regular price $69.00 USD


  • In Northern Rockies: Quiet Nature, get a collection of the most serene ambiences from the mountains of Montana. Hear the massive sparseness of glacial valleys and still water. Hear majestic swaying of old growth forest and naked trunks left by wildfire. Hear Lodgepole pines creaking and Douglas fir slamming to the forest floor. This library is packed full of tracks with sparse flora and fauna from the continental divide of North America, the crown of the continent where glacial meltwaters flow all the way to the Pacific, the Gulf of Mexico, and to the Hudson Bay. Perfect for use as the foundation of your designed environment, some stretches of rare natural silence are up to 35 minutes!
  • Only 26 glaciers (of the 150 in 1850) remain in Glacier National Park and all could melt within 30 years. Hear the sounds of this stunning natural cathedral while the glaciers remain. The ecosystem won’t sound the same when they’re gone.


      Key Features:

      • Quiet Nature recordings from the coniferous forests of the northern Rocky Mountains. 
      • Desolate ambiences with no wildlife.
      • Serene ambiences with minimal or distant flora and fauna. 
      • Large glacial and small shallow lakes
      • Ruffed grouse "drumming" can be heard as distant bass thumps. Read more about how males create this sound by beating their wings on hollow logs – here
      • Close perspective meltwater was not the focus of this library, but water is unavoidable during summertime in the Rockies. Water was always recorded at a distant as, for example, "distant soothing river" as part of flora and fauna ambiences.


      • Named markers are included in each file to help find interesting events in an otherwise uniform waveform.

              Field Recording Values

              An astonishing number of natural soundscapes are disappearing. I work to preserve as many as I can. 

              Mastering Rules

              I don't "photoshop" my nature sounds and present them as natural soundscapes. If I do remove something, it's marked in the metadata. Otherwise, it's a natural soundscape! Read more – here
