"The unusual musical volume of this tropical country made its impact known to me on my arrival in town, where the unbearably shrill chirping of the cicadas overwhelmed me each time I passed under a tree. At night fall, around even the meanest of ditches filled by the daily rain, myriads of toads and frogs struck up a concert, which, through its sheer intensity, muffled all other surrounding noises. When I penetrated the forest, I could hear bird species literally by the dozen and individuals by the hundred, all calling and singing together at dawn and at dusk." --Jean-Claude Roché

Oiseaux Du - Birds Of Vénézuéla (1973) by Jean-Claude Roché is a "stunning field recording, displaying unsual and hypnotic bird sounds from the Venezuelan jungle. Great for biologists, samplers, ambient djs, field recording aficionados and whatnot. Needs to be confirmed: the strange monkey / bird sounds in Bjork's excellent "the Gate" track's intro are to be heard on this recording, around 2:50 on the guanare/barinas track (B3)." [1]
