Autumn Trek – A binaural podcast celebrating my brief trip to Land Between the Lakes KY in mid-October. Please wear headphones!
Land Between the Lakes (see map below) is one of my favorite nature recording destinations. I’ve visited many times over the last 25 years and I’m always amazed by the richness of the soundscapes.
In mid-October of 2019, I traveled to western Kentucky to see and hear what happens there in the autumn. I wasn’t expecting much, aside from insect choruses and occasional bird sounds. So you can imagine my surprise as an abundance of sounds came flowing my way, one after the other, from an impressive variety of birds, insects, frogs and mammals.
In my Autumn Trek podcast, I share my listening adventures during the first portion of my visit, from my arrival late one afternoon until the wee hours of the following morning. While my second day was also full of wonderful sound experiences, especially a relaxing late evening thunderstorm, I decided not to expand my podcast to include that material, for fear there would simply be too many recordings for the average listener to digest (don’t worry … I plan to share the thunderstorm and another long ambient soundscape in another post, hopefully sometime soon).
Note: The recordings featured in this post are “3D binaural soundscapes”. Please wear headphones for a profound listening experience that will make you think you’re actually out there, immersed in the natural world!
For those whole would like to hear recordings without narration, here are my favorites:
