Global Sunrise

Global Sunrise: The musical sounds of dawn

A never-ending wave of bird song follows the rhythm of the earth’s rotation as if the sun never stopped rising and the birds never stopped singing. We begin in the Ecuadorian Amazon, at a place so remote it’s still possible to walk twelve hundred miles without crossing a road. Then we’ll chart a path through Central America, Western North America, the Hawaiian Islands, the vast Australian Outback, Sri Lanka and the Kalahari Desert. Then we’ll return to North America before descending once again into the Brazilian and Ecuadorian Amazon. (Extensive Liner Notes include bird species ID’s.)

a quest for imperiled Nature
an artist who never stopped listening.”
