Single, Unedited Recordings

Long, single, unedited recordings are very special. They allow the listener to hear time passing at a natural pace.

This 'slow listening' is the way nature works. It reflects nature's pace of activity. And listening at nature's pace slows down our racing minds, allowing us to mentally rest and concentrate.

Each of these recordings has been made by simply placing microphones in a natural environment, and allowing them to capture the natural flow of events. One place, one time. Simple.
