Birds and Brooks

Birds and Brooks cover photo

BIRDS AND BROOKS features the tranquil melodies of distant songbirds set against the gentle gurgling of small creeks and streams. An excellent choice for yoga and meditation. There is nothing more refreshing than the forest in spring, with green leaves unfolding, wildflowers blooming, water sprites dancing, and birds happily singing the music of heaven in this world.

photo of Lang ElliottNotes by Lang Elliott: In Hermann Hesse’s famous novel Siddhartha, the leading character finds enlightenment while listening to the “thousand voices” of a river. Entranced, Siddhartha experiences a moment of deep illumination and finally discovers peace within.

The myriad voices of small streams and creeks, accentuated by the twittering of birds, has the power to draw nearly anyone into a state of profound peacefulness, but only if one listens with an open heart and quiet mind. In selecting recordings for this title, I tried to choose those that naturally beckon an inner transformation, an effortless release of one’s cares and woes. I came up with ten that I felt had the desired effect. Was I successful in my choices? Maybe, maybe not … only those of you who deeply listen will know.

Playback Volume: Play softly for an optimal effect. It is important to listen at a volume that is similar to what you would actually experience in nature … the gentle gurgling of water accompanied by subtle bird sounds.

    I was wondering which track is your sample on the homepage – the one playing when the page first opens. I don’t see the name of it there. Could you tell me which Album it is from?

    Thanks :)

    My first question has already been answered in that I see you’ve corrected the PDF file since I downloaded Birds and Brooks. In my PDF, track 10 is titled “Cricket Farewell.” My second question is whether you’ve included the names of all the birds heard singing on each track. I like to use these tracks to practice field identification. Often in the field more than one bird is singing at the same time so it’s necessary to be able to separate each voice. I love that you’ve included the PDF with a list of some of the singers, but on some of the tracks I think I hear other birds singing that are not listed. Can you tell me if you tried to name all the singers or if you just listed the more prominent singers? Also, on track 5, the main bird singing sounds more like a Northern Waterthrush to me than a Louisiana.
