Don’t skip the first track. Before music, there was silence. Then...the dim lapping of waves, the whoosh of crisp air through autumn leaves, the fluttering call of a sparrow, and eventually, the early experiments of Homo Sapiens. But when our species had no other music to imitate, there was the natural world to draw from. Here you’ll find beautiful examples of some of the oldest forms of music, alongside natural field recordings (sometimes processed in startlingly modern ways).
