Creating the debut album honoring the seven sonic wonders

To mark the occasion of World Climate Day, Dolby Laboratories has released a unique album that honors seven endangered natural sounds from around the globe. The album, entitled “Seven Sonic Wonders,” features a musical score by composer Nainita Desai and was created in collaboration with wildlife sounds technician Chris Watson.

The sounds captured include the Vatnajokull glacier in Iceland, the dawn chorus of Lake Suvasvesi in Finland, and the song of a humpback whale in the Caribbean Sea, among others. The aim of this album is to connect listeners with the beauty of nature and raise awareness about endangered natural sounds.

Dolby Laboratories chose the sounds based on criteria such as ecological importance, geographical location, and historical heritage. The album was mixed by Kurt Martinez to create a deeper connection between listeners and Mother Nature.

Royalties from the album will go to EarthPercent, a charity that supports organizations with a significant impact in the fight against climate change. Wildlife sounds technician Chris Watson expressed his excitement about working on this project, hoping to transport listeners to the heart of these natural wonders through the power of sound.

Dolby Atmos technology was used to enhance the listening experience and take listeners on an immersive journey through the sounds of nature.

Overall, “Seven Sonic Wonders” is a powerful reminder of how important it is to protect our planet’s natural wonders for future generations.
