New CD Release Re: what's goin' on
« Reply #106 on: April 07, 2015, 02:58:52 PM »
Hey all,

April 07/15

I've just finished mixing and Mastering the CD I've been working on over the past few months,

"Spring Peeper Frogs"
- for sleep and relaxation     
(C) Glenn Hubert 2015

It's now uploaded to the gmhCafe Store ...it'll be in the shops very soon.

4 Instrumentals make up this project which includes a continuous background of spring peeper frogs throughout the recording.
I can almost guarantee that anyone who listens to this with headphones on and eyes closed will be on the nod before the CD ends or your money back!

1. Night Journey 16:00
2. Spring Evening  16:39
3. Quietude  16:48
4. Dream Away 14:27


The Spring Peeper Frogs were recorded in a remote and secluded area in Northern Ontario, Canada, with my Zoom H2 digital field recorder, to which I produced the accompanying instrumental music, which includes relaxing acoustic guitar, Native Flute, Piano, and layers of orchestral synths.
The Spring Peeper Frogs are a sound that many of us in the Northern Hemishpere look forward to hearing each spring. It's an iconic sound, and helps many to drift off to sleep, or just relax and let go.  8)

You can preview, purchase the CD, or download the whole album in our gmhCafe Store

Limited time Special:  buy 2 CD's and you'll get a third FREE!

Enjoy!  :)

very nice CD guys! 

I just had a listen to the entire package, and it's very soothing.

I love the music - and yes, I caught myself nodding off to dreamland before the end, and nooo it wasn't boring, just verrrry relaxing.

thankyou for bringing this to fruition, and for sharing it with us.

Cassey

Be happy with what you have.

I just saw this -

this is a brilliant CD man! 

I love the sound of the peepers, but not only that - the way you put the music together and the playing is awesome.

I especially love the first song. excellent piece of work there! I saw the video too! real cool.

good luck with your new CD!

Go to sleep with Rainfall - Re: what's goin' on
« Reply #110 on: July 18, 2015, 02:58:34 PM »
I've been very busy recording, and editing several "Nature Only" projects this past 6 months or so.

These albums have been something I've wanted to do for a long time, and time is a precious commodity these days, it seems.  8)

I'll discuss the other albums once they're Mastered and ready for listening, but for now, I'd like to share my latest Album/CD, which is Mastered and awaiting printing, pressing and shrink wrap, to be ready for retail in our gmhCafeStore

The Album is titled  "Tranquil Algonquin Rain" a "Nature Only" Recording and is also "Part of the Algonquin Wilderness Series" (a collection of recordings produced for Algonquin Park).
I intentionally produce these 'nature only' albums without music so that people can enjoy the pure unadulterated sounds of nature, for personal enjoyment, relaxation, sleep, etc.  (There's quite a few with music and nature, so you have a selection to choose from.)  :)

Tranquil Algonquin Rain - 1 hr. continuous play - was recorded with my Zoom H2 digital field recorder, in the early pre-dawn hours during mid-summer, on the shore of a secluded lake in the wilds of Algonquin Provincial Park, Ontario Canada.  There are no highways, rail lines, or industry or man made sounds, in the area where I recorded, as I had to portage the canoe deep into the wilderness, finding a secluded lake to camp and record, and take in some relaxation myself... actually for both my wife (Maureen) and I.

The entire album features only the sound of gentle rainfall, no wind, no thunder or lightning strikes, no birds or other extraneous sounds ... just a lovely relaxing tranquil rain.

The beautiful wilderness of Algonquin Provincial Park, made famous in part by the world renowned  "Group of Seven" artists, and visited by thousands of eager adventurers each year, who camp along the main routes with trailers and tents, while those more adventuresome types canoe, hike, and backpack the backwoods via thousands of Km. of trails and rivers and lakes that weave all through the park.  These trails and canoe routes were created by our native Algonquin First Nations people's long before the white man ever set foot on these lands.  The park is larger than Prince Edward Island, our smallest Canadian province.  8)

Tranquil Algonquin Rain will be my 24th Album released and available in the store, and will also be available in other retail outlets throughout Ont.  :)

I'll post a sample 'teaser' of the recording once it's in the store and ready for retail.
 :)

thanks all.  :)
P.S. I turned the cover over so it would show along with the CD in it's case for this pic I posted. :)

lol, Neil   :P   .. I gotta agree though, when I listen to that voice on those full length album 'previews' you can listen to on the store... that voice could definitely be a little more... um soothing perhaps.  I'll see if the powers that be can have that changed.      (I think it's done somewhat for copyright protection.) 
I'm just glad it's NOT on the actual Album!  :P

nice to hear you enjoyed the listen.
and thanks for the comments and feedback.  much appreciated.  :)

Hey MB, thanks for listen and feedback.  :)

Yeah, a lot of people really love listening to rain to help with sleep... great when you're on the road in a hotel room  - helps mask the strange noises etc.    I just like listening when chillin' or wanting to have a mid day WINTER'S nap .. lol.  :P

I hope you got the download ok, and that it was a good experience.
thanks so much for your support!

After another listen to the players 'preview' voicer, we decided that the female voice was better than what we had, so the rest of them will be treated in a similar way.

thanks Neil, for the feedback - it'll probably take a week or more to make the changes... but we'll get there.

The Album, along with the new "Preview" voicing can be heard here:

Tranquil Algonquin Rain Preview
