Album Notes
This CD, co-produced by Conservation International and EarthEar, presents lush, neotropical soundscapes from the Caratinga Biological Station in Brazil's disappearing Atlantic Rainforest. Its nine extended tracks of natural soundscapes explore the rich acoustic ecology of the area, including intimate portraits of the daily lives of primates, focusing on the endangered muriqui (or wooly spider monkey), and also featuring howler monkeys, capuchin monkeys, marmosets, tree frogs, and many birds, creating a sonic overview of the cycle of day and night in the forest.

The CD begins with a morning chorus of birdsong along a small creek, then moves in to the forest for visits with each of the three main species of primates. An especially unique segment observes the mating lek of the White-bearded Manakin, a small understory bird which engages in an extraordinary aerial display including several calls and popping and snapping sound from their wings. An afternoon storm gives way to an especially engaging evening frog chorus to end the disc.

Half the revenue received from sales of this disc will be sent directly to the Caratinga Biological station, to support the important work being done there to study and protect this endangered habitat and soundscape.
