"La Selva" by Francisco Lopéz, "sound environments from a neotropical rain forest", 1998.

La Selva is an immersion into the sound environments of a tropical rain forest in the Caribbean lowlands of Costa Rica. An astonishing natural sonic web created by a multitude of sounds from rain, waterfalls, insects, frogs, birds, mammals and even plants, through a day cycle during the rainy season. A powerful, acousmatic broad-band sound environment of thrilling complexity. And above all, a tour de force of profound listening.
