Without sound…there would be no music, no legend, no voice to stir the soul, evoke the memory, or transport the spirit! From the songs of humpback whales and the screams of Rwanda’s mountain gorillas to the groan of shifting Arctic glaciers or the rumble of an approaching storm, Wild Sanctuary albums, installations, and recognized authority in the field of natural sounds is authentic, adventurous, and inspiring. Within a changing world, what you listen to matters!
