Atmospheric recording of birds and crickets in the Nikko forest.

This is the first of a number of atmospheric recordings I'm uploading, based on a request from this thread.

This one takes place in the forests of Nikko one June day in 2001. Nikko is the quintessential heart of Japanese mystical forests. Your lying on your back imagining all sorts of primeval adventures - no Ninjas in this one (thankfully).

I've been recording these since 1999 on a mini disc walkman - for a project I had in mind (still have in mind? - we'll see).

The recordings traverse several continents, involving ducks, distant rolling thunder, rain, crickets, frogs and lots of water.

I'll create a playlist so that when you import them - they'll be in the correct order (as they fade into each other).

These are now part of a playlist and in the correct order - they *should* cross fade correctly when you download and play them in iTunes also.

They sound best through headphones, BTW.

I hate to tell you this, but I just opened my window a little while ago and some assholes are doing an unauthorized cover version of this tune. I hate to narc, but I thought you should know about it.
