American Prairie

American Prairie

Prairies, while appearing simple, are botanically among the most diverse and highly evolved of all habitats. Accordingly, they offer some of the most sonically diverse listening experiences, as we hear in this sequence of dawn to dusk recordings. The tight relationship between plants and animals reminds us that vegetation is nature’s musical score.
