From the Forest Radio Show: Episode 3

From the Forest Radio Show

I have become a presenter on One World Music Radio with a one-hour show called “From the Forest” which I’ve uploaded here for you. This is the third of a regular series of shows for the station.

From the Forest is a unique radio show that brings the wellness benefits of a forest direct to you wherever you are. The concept is simple; we wander together through England’s beautiful New Forest — the place I call home — accompanied by immersive, organic ambient music and soundscapes that I’ve created, inspired by each of the locations we visit. The show promotes mindfulness and the chance to connect with nature through sound. I look forward to welcoming you along.

Purify

Ambient Music Composition

This composition contains an important message about the benefit of trees in this era of climate change. Did you know that trees purify the air, trapping dust and absorbing pollutants? Each individual tree removes up to 1.7 kilos every year and provides shade from solar radiation. Trees absorb carbon dioxide as they grow, and the carbon that they store in their wood helps slow the rate of global warming. They reduce wind speeds and cool the air as they lose moisture and reflect heat upwards from their leaves. It’s estimated that trees can reduce the temperature in a city by up to 7°C.

Trees host vast microhabitats too. When young, they offer habitation and food to large communities of birds, insects, lichen and fungi. When ancient, their trunks also provide the hollow cover needed by species such as bats, beetles, tawny owls and woodpeckers. One mature oak can be home to as many as 500 different species.

Around the world we’re being encouraged to plant trees. The more that we plant, the better it will be for the environment and us. In the United Kingdom, The Woodland Trust are making it easy and low cost to do just that. Here’s a link to their online shop.

Please kindly pass this post on to your circle of friends through social media and elsewhere, so that we can try to reach out to as many people as possible, explain to them the wonderful benefits of our trees, and perhaps even encourage them to plant one of their own.

New Forest Sounds Ambient Music Podcast

Ambient Music Podcast Broadcast

The New Forest Sounds Ambient Music Podcast aims to bring the forest direct to you, through a selection of 100% relaxing, nature-inspired ambient music.

During this podcast, we’ll journey together in sound to some of the quiet places of England’s New Forest National Park. From the beauty of the forest as it awakens at first light, to gentle streams meandering through the woods. We’ll visit ethereal, misty moors, and even travel to the coast at Keyhaven to experience a smooth, glassy morning, and more besides.

We’ll hear birdsong like you’ve probably never heard it before, and there will be a couple of brain-teasers along the way too, where I play some forest sounds and give you the chance to see if you can recognise them. All you’ve got to do is settle back, press play and drift away with me for an hour. It’ll be nice to have you along.
