about

While not overtly rich in sonic material, I feel that sometimes it's important to experience and enjoy the quiet. This location in the Jamison Valley (Blue Mountains/NSW/Australia) is generally filled with the sounds of distant traffic from the town of Katoomba and the highway that goes through it, very regular plane/helicopter fly-overs and on the weekend, thousands of tourists.

These sounds were recorded in the deepest hours of the night when all of those now almost permanent sonic imprints took a brief slumber and let the quiet of this beautiful valley softly shine.
Imagine a cool, dark, humid forest in a wide, lush valley.. the sky is hidden by a sea of mist. In there we can (very) sparsely hear Sugar Gliders bark, Swamp Wallabies slowly creep and hauntingly moan, Greater Gliders screaming like gremlins in the canopy, Southern Boobooks hoot in the distance, the twinkling/buzzing of the crickets and katydids, twigs crisply fall, among other hushed details.
