Here’s a free download from a good friend of mine, Aren Souza – no relation, although I wish we were 🙂 He’s a creative. Period. When I try to think of a word that can categorize him that’s it. He is a musician, artist, studio recorder and a good surfer. Lately, he’s been experimenting with recording nature for fun and to help him sleep.
Aren sent me this .mp3 from a recent recording session in a bamboo forest near his home in Ka`a`awa, on the Hawaiian island of Oahu. It’s like an audio rough draft, raw and unedited, so there’s some non-forest-y kinds of sound but that’s cool for me – real life!
I’m listening to it as I write and have been using it, not to help me sleep, but as an ambient background to help me improve my focus and concentration. Here’s a link to download directly. It’s about 40mgs and 17 minutes long. Let me know what you think.
