> I love finding collections like this: Beautiful ambiences from a rainforest in Peru (free download on soundcloud) recorded by Jeff Cremer, who is associated with Peru Nature Rainforest Expeditions – oh how I would love to do their 5 day photography trip (with a bag full of microphones of course) Relatedly I have a recording trip planned for mid year to a Pacific Island, and I had read good advice about filling any spare space in your bags with useful things for local kids etc, but this Pack for a Purpose site takes that idea a stage further, offering specific advice as to what to take eg for the Peru trip

I should like this video but I don’t, it annoys me… I think its a combination of (imho) badly stylising something that doesn’t need stylising (the reality alone should/would have been fantastic, but its like one of those ads where a group of ‘creatives’ sat on the couch & slowly overworked the audio to death) combined with some rhythms that feel like phil collins programmed the beats or something!? sorry red bull, dont like your video & don’t like your drink either….

similar starting point, but no overt hype… & no phil collins… SO.MUCH.BETTER!
