"This audio piece arises from an encounter with a giant Amazon River turtle (Podocnemis expansa), also known as Arrau, on a temporary beach near the community of Horizonte, within the Mamirauá Reserve in Central Amazonas, Brazil. In a dark and quiet late-night, one can hear the turtle slowly returning to the waters of the Solimões River after laying her eggs on the sand.

Original recording made on the 28th of September of 2015. Part of a field trip supported by the Mamirauá Institute (Tefé, Amazonas, Brazil); the Sonic Arts Research Centre (SARC), Queen ́s University Belfast; Santander Mobility Award; Laboratory of Acoustics and Sonic Arts (LASom), Music Department of the Institute of Arts at State University of Campinas (UNICAMP) (São Paulo), and T-37 (Madrid). Special thanks to Silvia Jánošková, Maria Cecília Gomes and the field specialists who helped in Tefé and the riverine communities within the Amanã and Mamirauá territories in Amazônia."
