Thunder Toads

1 track, 61 mins. (Compact Disc Version available here)


THUNDER TOADS features an hour-long, sublimely relaxing soundscape, recorded among the hills of Land Between the Lakes, Kentucky. American Toads give dreamlike trills accompanied by a gentle chorus of spring peepers. A thunderstorm approaches, with periodic rumbling thunder and several periods of light rain and wind. Off to one side, water drips softly from a moist ledge. Just lovely!

TRACK DESCRIPTION (play at low volume for the most natural effect):

Toad Trills & Thunder (61:00) An eminently relaxing mix of creature and earth sounds … american toads trilling, spring peepers softly chirping, distant thunder, light wind, and rain … add them together and the result is pure magic. 11-12pm, 10 April 2000, Land Between the Lakes, Kentucky. © Lang Elliott.

Notes by Lang Elliott

lang_500-300x300This is without doubt among my most cherished recordings. There are only a few sound sources involved — toads, peepers, thunder, wind and rain — yet their combination produces a powerfully relaxing soundscape, one that sends me straight into dreamland. Recorded at one of my favorite spots in Land Between the Lakes Kentucky, this soundscape evokes magical memories of nights next to a forest wetland, mesmerized by what I hear.
