Marc Anderson, an Australian photographer and sound recordist whose recording of frogs in Sarawak won a competition for 'the most beautiful sound in the world', finds peace in nature’s isolated refuges.

What’s the most beautiful sound in the world? If an online competition organised by US-based lifestyle website is to be believed, it’s the sound of frogs, birds and insects singing in Sarawak’s very own Kubah National Park. The winner, Marc Anderson, an Australian photographer and soundscape recordist, was delighted when online voters chose his track Dusk By The Frog Pond from over a hundred entries. The news, announced via BeautifulNow and music-sharing site on Jan 13, also delighted Malaysian netizens who shared it with glee on social media.
