First Album Pays Homage to the Seven Sonic Wonders

In honor of World Climate Day, Dolby Laboratories has released the first album dedicated to the seven endangered sonic wonders. The album, entitled “Seven Sonic Wonders,” was created in collaboration with wildlife sound technician Chris Watson and features a musical score by award-winning composer Nainita Desai. The album is now available on Apple Music.

“Seven Sonic Wonders” collects the sounds of some of the world’s most iconic natural wonders, including 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.

To choose these wonders, Dolby followed a set of criteria that were similar to those used to select the Seven Natural Wonders. These included epic natural beauty, endangerment, diversity and distribution, ecological importance, historical heritage, geographical location, and embodiment of mystery. By selecting these sounds, Dolby hopes to raise awareness about these important natural wonders and inspire listeners to take action to protect them.

The album was mixed by Kurt Martinez with the aim of creating a deeper connection between listeners and Mother Nature. Additionally, royalties from sales will go to EarthPercent charity organization which provides opportunities for music industry professionals to support organizations that are making a significant impact on climate change efforts.

Nainita Desai expressed her excitement about working on this project: “I have been fortunate enough to travel all over
