Thunder and rain sounds – Asian rainforest soundscape

Lahad Datu, Sabah
Recordist: George Vlad
Recommended Charity: Tabin Wildlife Reserve

Thunderstorms sound absolutely fascinating in the rainforest. The constant sound of insects, birds and other wildlife creates a beautiful background for the slow rhythm of thunderclaps. Rain sounds a lot like diffuse noise at first and it takes a while for it to reach the undergrowth. When it finally permeates through the thick canopy, the microphones will start picking up the beautiful detail of water droplets hitting the vegetation.
