𝔠𝔬𝔭𝔞𝔩.𝔞𝔫𝔡.𝔪𝔶𝔯𝔯𝔥 Guess I have a thing about ambient nature sounds, especially with non-human vocal samples, lately, but this is such a cool project that really does justice to these amazing birds...which modern human life will eventually sadly obliterate. A sad listen, but a rewarding one.

Protect birds and the places they need 🐦🌲

Avian is an ambient album in which each song has been crafted around the vocalization of a specific species of bird, resulting in other-worldly and deeply immersive atmospheres. The album is a celebration of the wondrous diversity of bird shapes, survival strategies, vocalizations, colors, behaviors, and intellectual feats.

Avian is also a call to action to protect these incredible creatures. Bird species around the world are threatened by habitat loss from climate change, deforestation, and development. Therefore all profits made within the first month will be donated to the Audubon foundation to help protect endangered species of birds, such as the Gunnison sage-grouse.

The National Audubon Society protects birds and the places they need, today and tomorrow, throughout the Americas using science, advocacy, education, and on-the-ground conservation.

Avery Dart, founder of Escaping Aghartha, is from North Carolina, USA. He is currently pursuing a Master's of Science in biology and aims to preserve wildlife after graduation.Dart uses Escaping Aghartha as a platform to raise awareness about environmental degradation and to raise funds for conservation efforts through music sales.

Dart has been making music for the past 8 years, Escaping Aghartha is an interesting mix between one-man project and international band, depending on the genre. Avery Dart says: "I'm a metalhead at heart and enjoy making doom and black metal, but I lack the skill to create metal albums fully by myself. I enlist the help of my friends from all over the world to play drums, bass, and mix/master to help actualize the full potential of my musical ideas. However, when I'm making experimental or ambient music, such as Avian, I both possess the skill and enjoy the freedom that comes with being the sole musician for a release."
