Product Description

We’ve set up our recording gear near a stream that cuts diagonally across this high Sierra meadow from south to north. It carries with it water so clear and crystalline that we can see the trout heading for the shadowed holes as we approach. Willows and low vegetation along its path shelter many different kinds of birds. The forest edge is only a short distance away. Streams (like ocean sounds) are difficult to record. I have to be very careful so that what is picked up and transformed through my gear leaves the impression you get while actually on site. The result sounds simple, but takes many days and many hours of recording to achieve.

GREEN MEADOW STREAM is located to the east of Yuba Pass in the Sierra Nevada Mountains of California. This recording was made in 1988, a year before logging, in what was formerly a healthy and undisturbed habitat. Although the logging was selective, the habitat has since been significantly altered so that the soundscape example on this CD can no longer be experienced. Extinction takes many forms. Here is an example of a gorgeous biophony – recorded before it vanished.

About the Artist

Renowned naturalist and sound designer Dr. Bernie Krause has traveled the world capturing the soundscapes of exotic natural environments. Dr. Krause began his groundbreaking work in bioacoustics and environmental recording in the late 1960’s, and much of his work has been accomplished with techniques and technologies that he personally developed. His "In A Wild Sanctuary" (1970) recording earned a place in history as being the first recording to use environmental sounds as both a central component of orchestration and as a statement about the environment.

Dr. Krause’s diverse achievements include 10 recordings for The Nature Company that have enjoyed over $24 million in gross sales over a period of 6 years. Development of the audio technology innovation known as the Intelligent Show System (for public exhibitions and installations), and his Music and Word Series of spoken word documents that include "Ishi – The Last Yahi." Dr. Krause recently published the book "Wild Soundscapes" (2002) that includes a full-length CD featuring a sampling of natural sounds.

This is among the very best nature recordings I have every listened to - and I have been collecting them from all over the world for years.
As an avid hiker, it reminds me of those few exquisite days, when I happen to hit it just right, that the earth's music unfolds like the most compelling symphony.
Gorgeous !

I thought this cd would be background noise that I would, for the most part, ignore. It turned out to be very soothing, but also, astonishingly interesting. I think sometimes our busy, industrialized lives lead us to ignore nature's simple, but profoundly beautiful intricacies. This cd is a welcome reminder.

One more time Bernie Krause has made an outstanding recording of natural sounds. I live in a very large city where natural sounds exist, but not as dense as the ones recorded in Green Meadow Stream. It is the density, fabric of sounds that gives this album its real pleasure. I use Krause's recordings, this one is my third, to truly relax. You might say I have not even heard the whole thing since I fall asleep concentrating on the sound of the stream and the bird calls. His very best recording is, however, Kalimantan: Heaven Before Time, truly beautiful. No doubt about it, you have to like this sort of thing to appreciate sounds of nature as foreground. As background sound this stuff will drive you nuts.
