    ... ZBS put out layered audio productions before digitization -- real Amazonian jungle sounds, and remarkable sound effects by what we'd call "analog" equipment.

    They produced a performance of Tagore's "Kshudita Pashan" ("The Hungry Stones") from 1895 and made it come to life through your ears.

    Gutenberg Link to The Hungry Stones.
