Experience the beauty of Earth’s endangered sounds with Dolby’s ‘Sonic Wonders’: The Album That Brings You Closer to Nature

First Album Pays Homage to the Seven Sonic Wonders

Dolby Laboratories has created the first album that pays tribute to seven endangered sonic wonders, with a musical score by award-winning composer Nainita Desai. The album, called “Sonic Wonders,” was created in collaboration with wildlife sounds technician Chris Watson and is now available on Apple Music.

The seven sonic wonders that were chosen are the Vatnajokull glacier in Iceland, the dawn chorus of Lake Suvasvesi in Finland, the smiling hippopotamus in Kenya, the frog beats in Gamboa in Panama, the murmur of starlings in the United Kingdom, the whispers of a coral reef in the Sulu Sea, and the song of a humpback whale in the Caribbean Sea.

Dolby followed specific criteria to choose these wonders, including their epic natural beauty, endangerment status, diversity and distribution, ecological importance, historical heritage, geographical location, and their ability to embody mystery. The album was mixed by Kurt Martinez with the aim of creating a deeper connection between listeners and Mother Nature.

Desai expressed her excitement about working on this project with Dolby. “I have been fortunate enough to travel all over the world and experience nature’s best sounds,” she said. “We often overlook how important these sounds are compared to visual wonders but they truly complement each other.” Watson also stated that he hopes that through this album’s tracks listeners can be transported to these natural wonders themselves.

In addition to being an enjoyable listening experience for music lovers around the world, royalties from this album will go towards supporting EarthPercent charity organization which offers music industry companies a way to support organizations making a significant impact against climate change.
