Blending in with the undisturbed native environment, Gordon Hempton once more managed to acquire an astonishing level of variety in his recordings, stretching across multiple seasons, daytimes and weather settings: Whether it be the spine-chilling howl of a wolf pack haunting through the night, the late summer call of a pacific chorus frog, the enormous creak of a mighty tree trunk bending or the forest intoning its own characteristic symphony with the wind brushing through pine needles – CONIFEROUS FORESTS delivers its vast pool of resources with maximum authenticity and abundance.

Ancient CONIFEROUS FORESTS are treasured especially for their acoustic purity. The general absence of leaves rustling, fewer songbirds, and a more tempered variety of species amount to an even lower noise level than in the more lively DECIDUOUS FORESTS or TROPICAL FORESTS and incredibly preservative sound propagation over long distances. If you are looking for a more grounded, purer, northward ambience and SFX collection to draw from, CONIFEROUS FORESTS is indispensable.
BOOM Library is very proud to distribute the probably best nature recordings on the planet, the absolutely precious recordings of Gordon Hempton.
ENVIRONMENTAL ACTIVIST & EMMY-WINNER

Faced with habitat loss, species extinction and most of all unbridled noise pollution, Hempton has now turned his attention towards saving the world’s few remaining natural amphitheaters.
THE HIGHEST APPRECIATION FOR MOTHER EARTH’S VOICE
Gordon Hempton cares very deeply about quiet. As The Sound Tracker® he has circled the globe three times over the last 35 years in pursuit of Earth’s rarest nature sounds — sounds which can only be fully appreciated in the absence of manmade noise. These recordings are available through BOOM Library’s QUIET PLANET series.
