Hi all! I am fresh back from Ecuador and excited to share soundscapes I recorded at the wonderful Sani Lodge, located along the Napo River about 50 miles downriver from Coca, Ecuador. I’ve posted 21 (so far) on SoundCloud … you can listen to them via the playlist below …

Ecuador or Bust!

Sani Lodge from internet

Hi Everyone! Guess what? I’m heading to Ecuador in a few days to spend a week at Sani Lodge, situated in lowland rainforest along the Rio Napo (in Yasuni National Park). I’ll be gathering binaural ambience recordings for a movie about rainforest birds and relevant conservation issues. Check out this post if you are interested in learning more details. And rest assured that upon my return, I’ll share my favorite recordings, along with photos and perhaps some videos as well.

Spring Delights 2018 – Binaural Podcast

Shindagin Hollow Meditation Spot

Spring Delights 2018 is a 24 minute podcast featuring immersive binaural recordings I gathered this year during the height of spring. This is the first of two or three podcasts that will celebrate this season’s work. To experience the incredible spaciousness of the recordings, please listen using headphones!

Winter Windstorm

During the winter, I busy myself with creative work in my studio but try to keep in touch with what is happening out in wild nature. For a long time, I’ve wanted to get a powerful “elemental” soundscape featuring winter wind blowing through pines or spruces, and on February 28 the opportunity to do just that came blowing my way.

Thoughts of Spring

Spring is just around the corner! Here in upstate New York, Jefferson’s Salamanders migrated less than a week ago, the woodpeckers are drumming like crazy and I heard a cardinal singing in my yard this very morning. How exciting this is! Just to prime my spring-centric pump, I spent an hour this morning rummaging through some of my favorite springtime soundscapes from previous years and I soon uncovered a true delight … Hickory Mound Meadow, a lovely dawn chorus from early May featuring the gentle gurgle of a spring freshet along with a variety of bird songs … such a delicious taste of things to come!

Meadow Rainsong

Meadow in Light Rain by Lang Elliott

Light rain falls upon an overgrown meadow shortly after sunrise. Rivulets wind across the clearing, draining away excess water from the receding storm. The sun, peeping through the clouds, throws a broad beam of light across the clearing as birds burst into song in excited anticipation of the coming day.

Meltwater Melodies – Podcast

Hi Friends! I’ve just published Meltwater Melodies, an 11-minute binaural podcast recounting my visit to Oregon’s Cascade Mountains high country in mid-June of last year. My adventure only lasted a day, but I managed to snag a number of wonderful spacious recordings featuring various birds and frogs, along with the soothing sounds of meltwater brooks. You’ll hear songs and calls of the following, listed in the order of appearance: Hermit Thrush, Red-breasted Nuthatch, American Crow, woodpecker drums, Varied Thrush, American Robin, Sierra Chorus Frog, Common Nighthawk, Dark-eyed Junco, and more.

Wind Over the Ridge

Don your headphones and join me on a windy ridge in Great Smoky Mountains National Park! Experience and enjoy a soothing binaural immersion featuring a panoply of bird songs typical of high altitude spruce-fir forest in the southern Appalachians.
