The Changing Sounds of Nature Music from CSS Music
Remember when you really couldn’t underscore a morning outdoor nature scene without hearing a flute trill? J Composers most likely thought of the opening stanza from Rossini’s “William Tell Overture” that was used extensively for morning scenes in film and cartoons. In fact, for years the flute has defined nature music due to its bird-like sound and light, lilting nature.
Today, a solo dobro slide, fiddle crescendo or arpeggiated acoustic guitar chord can underscore the sun rising on an outdoor morning scene. And these instruments are much more in “tune” with the popular sound of roots music today from the likes of Mumford and Sons and The Lumineers.
At CSS Music we continue to add the contemporary styles that serve contemporary nature scenes so perfectly. Review our exceptional Super Themes library and you’ll find an entire CD (Volume 9 Nature Sphere) devoted exclusively to the nature genre. There are also solo guitar, bluegrass and “Swampabilly Rockers” volumes that will serve you well from Super Themes.
When you need a terrific “bad weather is coming” track, we highly suggest “Dark Swamp Adventure” on PowerTrax Volume 31. This track is structured similarly to a movie trailer with beginning, middle and finale. CSS Music has beefed up our roots-based music selection with a number of new volumes this year. Click on Nature (Outdoors & Environments) to audition some of the creative and varied tracks in this category.

Simply scroll down the CSS Music/Zero Fee Music home page to Build-A-Search and type in “Rossini.” You’ll find both sections of this classical masterpiece in our Digital Ditties library!
