Prepare yourself for the call of the wild: you’re about to listen to the beautiful sounds of Arctic wolves. Wolves are probably one of the most misunderstood creatures in the world. You will love them, or fear them, and some will even hate them! The truth is they they are incredibly shy, and very rarely has a wolf attacked a human without us invading their territory in a way that could have been interpreted as a threat. Wolves will defend what they consider dearest in their lives, and that is their family.
User requests can be challenging, especially when my ultimate goal is to record original sounds rather than obtain licenses for existing records. This particular request has taken me above the Arctic Circle during the Winter of 2015, to the region of Finnish Lapland. There I met Tinja who greatly helped me in recording these wonderful sounds. This soundscape took many nights of covert recordings in her remote place, a magic spot without electricity or running water, lost in the middle of pure wilderness.
