Field Recordings Albums


#1

Hi all!!

Looking for albums of nature field recordings specially of birds, but whatever helps. Planning to use that at the start of a set and for my listening pleasure. Of course I considered just recording some stuff from youtube, but I’m more interested in actual field recording artist. Old or new, extra points for bandcamp links.

also, experimental composer Olivier Messiaen was well known for using birds as inspiration for his own works in case you find yourself wanting to follow a bunny trail in another direction…
