Walking With The Trees

Walking With The Trees begins with the sound of rainfall. You are in the heart of the forest, enveloped in the lush canopy of mist-covered leaves. As the sun emerges and bathes the surrounding greenery in beams of light, the soundscape takes you slowly past the evolving beauty everywhere around you.

An array of flute sounds keep the soundscape delicate yet the drum beat subconciously connects you to the pulsing heartbeat of the plant life you are immersed in. The opening percussion loop was downloaded from Looperman: Rain Ambience - Only Brushes.
