PRAIRIES is the sixth SFX library from our series of high quality and amazing nature recordings by Emmy-winner and nature recording genius Gordon Hempton. Hempton has searched the globe for more than three decades to record nature at its most pristine.
For this collection, he ventured out into the wide fields of the American prairie to successfully return with this superb and fascinating sound material.

To quickly dispel any doubts at this point: None of these prairie SFX repeats the “Winds Of Nature”library. PRAIRIES offers a brand new, unique selection of open-field wind recordings combined with indigenous vegetation alongside the special weather phenomena specific to American prairies. When designing your environment for a movie or game, authenticity a key factor in terms of immersion and PRAIRIES delivers just that.

ENVIRONMENTAL ACTIVIST & EMMY-WINNER
All of the nature sounds in the QUIET PLANET Nature SFX series were recorded by Gordon Hempton, The Sound Tracker®, Emmy-winner, author of One Square Inch of Silence, and environmental activist. 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.

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.
