is evening, and
you're sitting at the edge of a small pond on the outskirts of
town. It is Spring
and you're glad you've got your mosquito repellant on! The green
tree frogs in the pond
are earnestly engaged in their springtime mating chorus.
There is a lot of detail in this recording. Across the pond from
you there are a few houses, and once in a while
you can hear somebody's dog yapping. A thunderstorm moves in and
doesn't look like it is going to leave in any hurry. A vehicle
passes by every once in a while on the road a short distance away ...
and if you listen for it you can even hear the rumbling of a distant
paper mill. These
extraneous sounds simply add to the experience. The
thunder ranges from distant low
rumbles to the sharp explosive crack of a near strike! The frogs'
chorus ebbs and flows, sometimes the nearer ones become silent while
the opposite side of the pond continues. You could imagine that
they've paused long enough to listen to the other side of the pond for
a moment. And, as the evening wears on their overall activity
becomes noticeably less energetic.
There is no music, just a chorus of Green Tree Frogs with a really nice thunderstorm.
Many possible uses: Low volume for a relaxing ambient or noise masking playback ... just like living next to a pond like the one pictured on a stormy night! It might even work for you as a sleep aid. In this version, the tree frogs have center stage.
I have two other versions available in which the thunderstorms are more the star than the frogs are. Thunderstorm with Tree Frogs is a full dynamic range recording, while Mellow Thunderstorm with Frogs is a 'tamed down' version.
