Stats for this track
The theme of this album seems quite obvious, water. The recorded soundscapes you hear in this release are a meditative celebration of something many of us love. We are drawn to water in ways we cannot understand. Oceans, rivers, gentle streams, quiet rain, there is something deeply calming and soothing when we listen. You will understand what I mean if you have ever sat on the edge of the world to listen to a crashing ocean, or spent a quite night in the wilderness, lulled to sleep by a gentle frog chorus in a nearby wetland.
We cannot live without water, clean water, it not only flows through the rivers and moves with the ocean but is also contained within the bodies of all living things. These recordings are from pristine areas, where water continues to flow, unpolluted and unhindered, perhaps a metaphor for life for if we treasure water, we also protect the Earth.
The album contains field recordings from deep forest swamps to a wild Atlantic Ocean at dawn and the sounds of an underground spring in the Boreal Forest, even the deep rumble of a stream with 2 feet of ice and snow covering it, carefully selected from original field recordings by Mark Brennan they will take you on an audio journey through, in and with water.
