Atmosphere

These sounds are intended to wrap around my book, “Conversations with Elephants,” like a loose garment. There are no hidden messages to uncover or meta-conversations to join. It is simply an atmosphere of voices, sounds and music that aims to add to the experience of the text.

The tracks take a second or two to load after “play” is pressed. Please be patient.
