Nature sounds CD

Have you ever wondered what an apple orchard in blossom sounds like, an approaching thunderstorm or a sleeping horse?

Have you ever wondered what an apple orchard in blossom sounds like, an approaching thunderstorm or a sleeping horse? Listen to the new CD, compiled by Henk Meeuwsen who works at Alterra. Meeuwsen started recording the sounds of nature in 1998, and has already produced four CDs. Instead of focusing on the sounds made by separate species, his latest CD records the sounds of nature as a whole. ‘Apple trees in bloom’ is a concert of humming insects for example, and the climax is the recording of a thunderstorm, in which no wildlife can be heard. A relaxing CD for at home or work, or as a souvenir of the Netherlands. / Martin Woestenburg
