Sonic Wonders of the World: A Musical Tribute to Earth’s Endangered Treasures

First Album Pays Homage to the Seven Sonic Wonders

Dolby Laboratories has just released a groundbreaking album that celebrates seven of the world’s most endangered sonic wonders. The album, titled “Sonic Wonders of the World,” was created in collaboration with award-winning composer Nainita Desai and wildlife sounds technician Chris Watson.

The criteria used to select these sonic wonders were based on the same principles as the Seven Natural Wonders, including epic natural beauty, diversity and distribution, ecological importance, historical heritage, geographical location, and embodiment of mystery. The tracks include 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.

The album was mixed by Kurt Martinez with a goal of forging a deeper connection between listeners and Mother Nature. Additionally, royalties from sales will go to EarthPercent charity organization which aims to bring awareness to climate change through music industry support.

Nainita Desai expressed her excitement about working on this project: “I have been fortunate enough to travel all over the world and experience nature’s best sounds. It is important we recognize these soundscapes just as we do visual wonders.” Chris Watson added that he hopes listeners can feel transported by each track and experience these natural wonders firsthand through music.

Dolby Atmos technology was utilized to enhance listening experience for all audiences around world.

In conclusion, “Sonic Wonders of the World” is an incredible piece that brings attention to some of Earth’s most unique sounds while also supporting environmental causes. It’s not only an enjoyable listen but also serves as a reminder to appreciate nature’s auditory gifts too.
