Native American flute, Spanish guitar, and other relaxing music will accompany you on this sojourn with nature through the incredible Living Desert.

  5. Total Audio Natural Experience..... Review by R Round "ST"

    This review is for all Orange Tree Productions CDs, recorded for the National Park Series. The music is incredible; recorded using a special binaural microphone that captures the sounds of nature in 3D. The effect is the most amazing music I've heard. These CDs record the sounds of nature including not just standard bird songs but also sounds of whistling wind on a desert plateau, misting rain in the forest, distant thunder on the horizon, a tricking creek in the woods, massive rivers plowing thru the valley, a crackling campfire and popping wood, horses and mules plodding along, waves pounding the seashore, seagulls flying overhead, and other sounds. These sounds are then mixed with beautiful melodies w/ flute, piano, and other instruments to create the most incredible mood music I have ever heard. You will actually feel like you are there experiencing nature. Each CD produced by Orange Tree is impeccable, a jewel in itself. I cannot recommend enough that listeners looking for total relaxation get these CDs. Orange Tree produces quite an impressive list of CDs, each based on sounds and music from a certain geographical area or national park. My first exposure to Orange Tree was in a bed & breakfast in Colorado. I bought Sounds of the Rocky Mountains and have since collected over 10 CDs, each for a different National Park. It is well worth the money if you are looking for a total audio natural experience in 3D. (Posted on 1/20/2015)

  6. The Living Desert trains dog to not be afraid Review by Marilyn

    We have a puppy who is 1 year and 3 months who is a fantastic dog. She has listened to The Living Desert in our home and in the car including the parts which have thunder. We just had a very powerful storm come thru with lightening, thunder and rain...........and is not bothered in the least. We used to have a mature rescue Border Collie who was afraid of thunder when we got him, he listened to the CD in the car mostly..... and came to terms with thunder and was unafraid. I bought the LD-CD for myself years ago while visiting years ago and it is STILL one of my favorites! Who knew it was therapy for animals!! (Posted on 9/29/2014)

    If you've ever had the extreme pleasure of experiencing the gorgeous Sonoran desert you will love this music. It is the perfect soundtrack to accompany an early morning hike or a glass of wine on a patio overlooking the Catalina Mountains. Love it! (Posted on 3/28/2013)
