Excellent mix of bird songs


I have three other David Sun Nature Sounds recordings--all of birds without music. Sun usually has excellent audio mixes. There is one surprise I wasn't anticipating--a sudden heavy shower (no thunder), which increases in volume to the point you hear no birds. Doesn't last long, but it is intense. I'm not a fan of listening to rain on a recording (we tend to get plenty where I live--don't need to pay to listen to a recording of it!). I never get tired of listening to birds--you can have them in the background with other music or TV (I generally don't--I'm just saying) because it's such a natural sound. I would recommend this if you like just a mix of birdsongs with a heavy rain shower at one point.

About David Sun

David Sun was born in Kent, England. His earliest recollections of music include listening to recordings by George Gershwin and Irving Berlin. His parents discovered that Sun could play piano by ear and enrolled him in formal piano lessons. Later, Sun taught himself how to play other instruments, including synthesizer, organ, tin whistle, and percussion. Alone in his studio, Sun writes peaceful new age music; his primary inspiration is the natural world around him: his miniature Japanese garden with its small stream, the frogs singing at the pond, thunderstorms, a squirrel chewing on a nut, or even water dripping from his tap.

Sun is also a published author of short stories, a painter whose watercolors and landscapes hang in several English art galleries, an actor, and a children's magician and puppeteer. He wrote the score to Tranquility, a 40-minute video of nature scenes, and his 1993 Plant Music was used as the soundtrack to a BBC television documentary, Discovering Nature. His recordings are available on the New World Music label. ~ Carol Wright
