The Oasis at Ash Meadows

$65

This library of ambiences from the largest remaining oasis in the Mojave Desert where the highest concentration of endemic species in the United States can be found was recorded in the summer of 2023 during a week when daytime temperatures were breaking 120 degrees Fahrenheit, (49 degrees Celsius) and yet the recordings at each of the three locations are full of wildlife calls attesting to the resilience and adaptability of nature.

Great care and no small amount of time was spent identifying the birds and other wildlife in each recording and the calls have been tagged with metadata markers that appear in Soundminer as well as most DAWs to make it easier to know what you are hearing and when.

Situated within the harsh desert landscape of the Amargosa Valley in Nevada USA and within view of the infamous Death Valley we find Ash Meadows National Wildlife Refuge, the largest remaining oasis in the Mojave Desert where the highest concentration of endemic species in the United States can be found. It is a location truly unlike any other, with mysteries defying explanation to this day.

The oasis is formed by springs fed by underground “fossil” water deposited thousands of years ago. Several species of endangered pupfish have remained in the wetlands and water system since the Pleistocene, including the iconic Devil’s Hole Pupfish which is endemic only to a single hole in the ground where the ice age water surfaces and remains at a year-round constant temperature. The bottom of Devil’s Hole has yet to be found, and earthquakes as far away as Japan, Indonesia and Chile cause the water to slosh back and forth against the walls of the hole with waves splashing as high as two meters.

This library of ambiences was recorded in the summer of 2023 during a week when daytime temperatures were breaking 120 degrees Fahrenheit, (49 degrees Celsius) and yet the recordings at each of the three locations are full of wildlife calls attesting to the resilience and adaptability of nature. Great care and no small amount of time was spent identifying the birds and other wildlife in each recording and the calls have been tagged with metadata markers that appear in Soundminer as well as most DAWs to make it easier to know what you are hearing and when.

The library also includes recordings of wind passing through sagebrush, mesquite trees and other foliage and “room tone” periods of near silence.

As always, recording techniques were selected to minimize disturbance to wildlife and any recordings including human sounds have been omitted from the library as I feel this results in a more natural feel than when those sounds are edited out in post. This library uses the Universal Category System convention for filenames and metadata.

Sale Policy: To keep things simple, I never put any of my libraries on sale or offer any kind of discount. I sell them at a reasonable price given the effort to record and compile them, I find this is the most honest and transparent approach to the sale of sound effects.

I’m James Thatcher and I am passionate about recording and creating unique sounds. With Sky River Sound, I focus mostly on nature ambiences, and have thus far released libraries of natural soundscapes from Death Valley, the Pacific Northwest and Alaska. Other, non-nature libraries are also available here on ASEย
