The Northern Giant
This soundscape was recorded during a field recording trip to Finland in May 2019. Finland’s vast forests are home to around 100,000 moose. Despite of their enormous size - they weight as much as 700 kilogrammes - moose are seldom to see: they shelter in the forest during the daytime, and graze during the twilight hours. Our host Tehri knew a spot where they would pass-by. And they did! Your turn to stay quiet and to listen carefully...
During our staying, the weather was cloudy. A light wind and rain were on the program every day, as evidenced by the different sliders in this soundscape.
Special thanks to my childhood friend, Gérard, who joined me and helped me in finding the recording spots. Check out the pictures from the recording session. Sampling sessions abroad are only possible because of the generosity of the people making donations to this website.
