CONIFEROUS FORESTS is a breathtaking experience through and through. Massive conifers towering to untold heights, forming some of the most majestic natural cathedrals this planet has to offer, create auditory atmospheres as amazing as the forest is to behold. At the same time, CONIFEROUS FORESTS are known for their calm, comforting and secure ambiences of blissful solitude. Blending in with the undisturbed native environment, Gordon Hempton once more managed to acquire an astonishing level of variety in his recordings, stretching across multiple seasons, daytimes and weather settings: Whether it be the spine-chilling howl of a wolf pack haunting through the night, the late summer call of a pacific chorus frog, the enormous creak of a mighty tree trunk bending or the forest intoning its own characteristic symphony with the wind brushing through pine needles – CONIFEROUS FORESTS delivers its vast pool of resources with maximum authenticity and abundance.
Ancient CONIFEROUS FORESTS are treasured especially for their acoustic purity. The general absence of leaves rustling, fewer songbirds, and a more tempered variety of species amount to an even lower noise level than in the more lively DECIDUOUS FORESTS or TROPICAL FORESTS and incredibly preservative sound propagation over long distances. The enormous auditory horizon allows sounds, having travelled many miles – possibly even from other habitats – to enrich your sound design after a transformative journey through some of the most impressive acoustic spaces known to man.
The overall simpler, quieter and more spacious structure of CONIFEROUS FORESTS inspires otherwise subtle and hidden treasures to take the spotlight: Going into fine detail and capturing signature sounds and isolated messages to hallmark a particular moment is one of this library’s many strengths.
