By J. Lovins HALL OF FAMEVINE VOICE on April 22, 2003
Format: Audio CD
Nominated for an Oscar for Best Documentary Feature "Winged Migration" takes the audience on a journey of dozens different birds flight paths. This fascinating film is directed by Jacques Perrin and the score is by Bruno Coulais the veteran French composer. Other cues in the film "TO BE BY YOUR SIDE", featuring vocal by Nick Cave ~ "MASTER OF THE FIELD" and "THE RED FOREST", performed by Robert Wyatt ~ "LIKE A BREATH OF AIR", performed by A Filetta ~ "THE WOUNDED DOVE", performed by Gabriel Yacoub ~ all the music is breathtaking fulfilling the listeners emotions when viewing the landscapes of Monument Valley, the Eiffel Tower, the Arctic and the Amazon.
Higher Octave has presented an album that can stand on its own for your listening pleasure. Each track extends warmth and excitement while introducing the listener to other parts of the world ~ through the eyes of migration and the music that gives them existence.
Total Time: 45:16 on Tracks ~ Higher Octave 82505 ~ (4/22/2003)

this is my first review. usually i leave that to others; younger, more literate, more net verbal. but i received this cd yesterday and i have played it many times since and will play it more times today. it is beauty beyond. it is simply the best soundtrack or grouping of music that i have heard in a long time.

I enjoyed the movie quite a bit but it was actually the music which kept running through my head after the film. The CD had yet to be released at that time and it turned out to be better than I imagined. From the songs to the background scoring, each track "soars". If you buy one soundtrack this year, I highly reccommend this one. Actually, if for some reason you only buy one CD, you won't go wrong here either.

I disagree that the soundtrack detracts from the film. I walk by a movie theatre nightly on my way home, and, not having enjoyed MicroCosmos at all, I was avoiding this film due to the association. One night however, I needed something to relax and unwind after a terrible day at the office. Within the first few minutes of Winged Migration, I was awestruck, and, various scenes made me gasp aloud -- the migration over the Great Wall of China was almost a fantasy painting, as is the aerospace view looking down on white geese crossing the Earth. I too, came away with a more respectful attitude to the planet, grasping at once that the few "ugly" scenes of the birds waddling through muck were the result of man, not nature. Accompanying all of this beautiful visual imagery was a soundtrack which at times was amusing, timing classical rhythyms with the mating dance of birds, at times restful and serene, and at times energizing. The music is not non-stop throughout the movie, but instead, fades in and out as a gentle reminder that music, too, is a gift, whether man-made, or bird-made. I came away from the film feeling as if I'd just taken a one hour stress break, and immediately wanted the soundtrack.

The music in this soundtrack is beautiful music, very serene and relaxing. And, if you listen to the words of the songs, you will understand what this music is all about. There is a song that sounds like a Tribe of Indians performing a ritual in honor of our feathered friends, the birds, which I found to be very unique. There is the sound of beating drums. All of the instruments are very good. You can even hear the geese in the background to some of the music. I also saw the movie. I plan to purchase it on VHS when it comes out on November 18th. This is definitely a movie and CD that everyone should have in their library. After you have seen the movie, you will have greater appreciation for the music that goes along with it. The birds in flight take us to a higher perspective on life and all of its struggles. If one misses the opportunity to listen to the CD or see the movie, they are missing out on alot. For after listening to the CD and seeing the movie, I feel it has greatly enriched my life and made me more in tune to nature.

The movie was what inspired me to seek out this sound track. It brings tears to my eyes it's just that touching - telling the tale of the trials and joys of bird migration through a wonderful compilation of songs - some have lyrics some are instrumental. There are sounds of geese honking and songbirds singing throughout, telling stories, singing poems - just wonderful. Its simply magical just as is the incredible strength of nature and migration itself.
"Tonight I will be by your side, but tomorrow I will fly, tomorow I will fly...."
Oh it gives me goose bumps just listening to it now. Every song is wonderful - they flow like water, with drum beats, flutes, and other instuments. I highly recommend the movie too!

I just saw this fabulous film about the migration of birds, and what it truly memorable for me was the hauntingly beautiful score. A perfect complement to the images but able to stand on its own musically. Ethereal, soothing, memorable music.

amazing. the whole soundtrack , from the first track to the last one is amazing. It combines different styles, different signer and style of mysic, the voices will simply take you under it's wing and you get the feeling sometime you are floating in the air and sometime soaring against the wind.
