Keep the noise down, perishing woodland creatures.

Need some aural balm for these strange times?

Sounds of the Forest collects ambient sounds from woodlands and forests all around the world, creating a growing soundmap bringing together aural tones and textures from the world’s woodlands.

The sounds then form an open source library, to be used by anyone to listen to and create from. Above is a lovely recording from Gougane Barra in beautiful West Cork. The full map and sites included can be viewed (at link below).
