Officially, this is the second installment of the Sydney Skies Series.
Please visit OasisD.com for the full background.
The music featured here is by William Orbit from his Hello Waveforms album; the song is entitled, Humming Chorus.
This video features the many structures that compose the Sydney City Sky Line, from a flipped perspective. The upside-down imagery can make the viewer feel strange, and it's worthwhile to actually imagine and remember that Australia really is nearly upside-down when you compare it against the orientation of cities in the Northern Hemisphere. In the busy world we live in it can become easy to forget how interesting and pervasive the function of gravity truly is.

This video, "Canadian Rapid", depicts scenes captured in the Canadian Wilderness along the Turtle River.
The song heard here is from Ben Scott and Christa Michell's Tibetan Chakra Meditations album and is called Throat Chakra - Communication (Regular). The music is a wonderful combination a single tone from a singing bowl with a flute.
This magnificent sandstone formation stands 348 meters high, which is 1,142 feet. Uluru is gigantic, and to give you a better sense, it measures 9.4 kilometers in circumference, 5.8 miles. It is so beautiful and wonderful, what a sight it truly is.
The local Anangu people do not climb Uluru because of its great significance to their culture. It is of great spiritual significance to them.
They request that visitors not climb the rock, partly due to the belief that climbing path crosses a sacred traditional Dreamtime track, and also due to a sense of responsibility for the safety of visitors to their land, for it is a very treacherous climb. The Aṉangu know that they have a spiritual connection to Uluru, and feel immense sorrow when a person dies or is injured whilst climbing such an incredibly sacred location. Please do not climb Uluru unless you are ordered to do so.
Note: Uluru is located in Australia's Northern Territory within Uluru - Kata Tjuta National Park.
Note: Uluru is also known as Ayers Rock.
The song that is heard in this video has been named Solar Plexus Chakra - Empowerment, and originates from the works of Ben Scott and Christa Michell. This track can be found on their Tibetan Chakra Meditations album.
Sounds come from a singing bowl, a spirit catcher, and a human's vocal chords (deep vowel chanting). A spirit catcher is an interesting instrument that seems to also be known as a "whirl bow" and a "bull roar". A spirit catcher consists of a wooden frame supported by two cross bridges with large elastic bands stretched around them. The wooden frame is attached to a long strand of string. To create noise, the device whirled about in circles over one's head. As the wooden frame quickly passes through the air, drag is created by the elastic bands and causes them to resonate sound.
The scenes in this video were captured from a variety of locations. They include: the Alaskan Inside Passage, the surrounding landscapes of the Great Ocean Road (outside of Melbourne, Australia), the Blue Mountains (beyond the city limits of Sydney, Australia), and Kakadu National Park (outside of Jabiru, Australia).
This video uses music from Ben Scott and Christa Michell's album, Tibetan Chakra Meditations. The specific song used is called Sacral Chakra - Fertility. What is heard are sounds from a singing bowl, bamboo pipes, and rainsticks.
The imagery seen here is of several different woodland campfires.
Note: A Rainstick is long hollow tube, traditionally cactus, that creates a sound similar to that of a rainstorm. The hollow tube is filled tons of small beads and is pierced with many small picks. The flow of the beads down the prickly chamber produces the hissing like noise of the rainstick.
