Creeking Crickets © MP3 Download
"Creeking Crickets" © is designed to provide the auditory stimulus that winter and urban living lacks, to help people find their "organic grounding" that they seem to lose in the winter months. The rhythmic elements are complimented by a randomness that is relaxing, soothing and refreshing. This combination best stimulates the auditory sense, while the lack of bass frequencies means it won't distract the attention. These characteristics also make this CD ideal as an aid to meditation, to give relief to depression and stress, and to aid insomniacs and light sleepers. When played in the background, the peaceful sounds of a summer night brings an organic grounding to one's self.
Creeking Crickets © was recorded by a creek in the summer of 2004. The creek sounds are very sparse and in the background and are not audible to the casual listener. (it is a very small creek!) This soundscape was recorded during an unusually wet and cool summer. Tree frogs were in their element, as you can hear in the latter few minutes of this soundscape. Surprisingly, this was recorded in the exact same spot as the "Frog Mantra" © and "A Froggie went a Wooing" © were recorded 2 years earlier (featured in the Spiritual Serendipities CD). At that time there were practically zero insects. Now there are zero frogs. On those usual hot dry mid-summer weeks this creek almost dries up. Not this year! Comparing the two recordings illustrates how every moment is unique in nature. Differences in climate variation, as well as cycles of animal populations can create totally different ecological niches for species each year.
The preview features a part of the song that has heavy participation from the treefrog population. Creeking Crickets © is a natural soundscape composed of edited and mixed digital stereo quasi-binaural field recordings. This recording technique produces a 3 dimensional audio image when listening with headphones. Encoded at a bitrate of 192 kps for quality listening.
Creeking Crickets is released on the "Crickets Calming" CD. Link to the Crickets Calming CD page
