The Final Notes of a Dusk Chorus

Artist: Melissa Pons
Andalusia, Spain

The final notes of a dusk chorus with bats and vulture vocalisations.

Gradually, the atmosphere goes into a quieter mood and the night is setting. It’s in this moment that our ears pay more attention: it’s not silence. It’s the air of the mountain, it’s a lonely vulture call, a delicate movement we can’t translate into a visual scene, debris falling down.

Silence calls for respect and being respectful can very well mean listening to our more-than-human co-habitants. is a completely free streaming service of 800+ nature sounds from around the world, offering natural soundscapes and guided meditations for people who wish to listen to nature, relax, and become more connected.
