Synopsis

Album Description
We finally hit a time when traffic from the road, seven miles to the west, can no longer be detected by our mics. It's 4:00AM at this eastern Washington site and the wind has shifted, helping to deflect unwanted noise. Midnight rains have left a gossamer mist over the lake so mellifluous sounds coming from the coniferous forest encircling it are crisp and detailed. Dampness covering the ground and all the vegetation causes these lovely spring voices to reverberate everywhere. A raven circles overhead demonstrating the point. It's springtime and trout leap at low flying insects while red-winged blackbirds, chipping sparrows, Stellar's jays, American robins, finches, Swainson's and veried thrushes sing melodies of supplication. Two sites...the north and south ends of the lake...were recorded at the same time and are reflected here as two distinctly different biophonies.

CD Reviews

Classic Krause - beautiful and soothing
bored99 | Hamden, CT USA | 02/22/2010
(5 out of 5 stars)

"In the absence of any other reviews, I'd like to say that this is classic Krause ... you can imagine yourself either waking from camping at a beautiful locale, or maybe snoozing while fishing creekside on a warm, sunny day. Beautiful, calm nature noises such as bird calls, trees rustling in gentle wind, or occasional frogs (I think!) provide soothing background noise, giving the impresion of "surround sound" despite my having stereo speakers--you can distinctly tell that some sounds are near, some far, some left some right, etc... making for a soundscape with depth. It's hard to describe exactly how he makes it sound like you're out by a wide, open lake... no echoes, no artificial repetition (although you do get the occasional "dialogue" where it sounds like two birds talking to each other), no tinny noises, no cars rumbling in the distance or anything else that would distract you from feeling like you are resting beachside with no one for miles around."
