about

" This album was published in 2009. Since that time I am trying to record the other species. I only could gather the songs of 24 species among the 33 ones present on the island of Taiwan. I keep hope that I will find time to continue this project, definitely my favorite activity... If I succeed, I will reissue this album in CD, and will publish the second volume, I promise. " - YD

Please note that some species have their name changed since the publication of this album, especially 白頷樹蛙 is now Polypedates braueri, the name Polypedates megacephalus being the kept for the invasive specie in Taiwan 班腿樹蛙.

Taiwan, located between Japan and Philippines, possess a precious natural environment. This 68 minutes long Compact-Disc contains the songs of 16 amongst the 32 species of frogs that inhabit the island.
Realized by a sound artist who is also an amphibian enthousiast, these recordings (devoid of vocal or musical accompaniment) are not only audio documents for natural history aficionados, but propose also some listening situation for the pleasure of the ears. This work is an invitation to the delicacy of the sounds of nature in Taiwan. This CD audio is accompanied by a 28 pages booklet containing illustrations by taiwanese artists, photos and explanations about the species.
