The Sounds of Carlsbad Caverns
A musical exploration of Carlsbad Caverns and Guadalupe Mountains National Park. Sounds of nature recorded live from this southwestern treasure. Musicians include Tim Heintz, Grant Geissman, Dan Higgans and Ramone Stagnaro.
The region of the American southwest that encompasses Carlsbad Caverns National Park and Guadalupe Mountains National Park is filled with contrasts and ripe with intrigue. On this CD, you'll hear the flurry of cave swallows outside the caverns' entrance, the cadence of water seeking the very bottom of the cave, the harmony of a morning chorus of desert birds, the percussion of a passing mountain storm, and the whirr of bats overhead as they spiral toward the darkening sky en masse.
Produced by Orange Tree Productions.
Recorded on location at Carlsbad Caverns National Park and in the Guadalupe Mountains.
A portion of each sale is donated to Carlsbad Caverns Guadalupe Mountains Association.

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 1/21/15)
Love it Review by Susan
I have several Cd's from orangetree and I love this one the most! The sounds are soothing and the music fits the mental picture you get while listening to the what you would expect from Carlsbad caverns. I would recommend this for any relaxing occasion. (Posted on 2/19/12)
