Length: 54 mins
4.5 out of 5 stars (6 ratings)

Publisher's Summary

Unlike canned nature sounds created in a studio, renowned acoustic ecologist Gordon Hempton travels the world recording remarkable locations that capture the essence of the place itself. His lifelong mission is to preserve nature through sound, and his soundscapes are produced with such care and quality that you feel as if he has truly brought a slice of the world into your home. 

Few things are as soothing as the lull of the ocean, and in this piece, Gordon celebrates the sounds of the Atlantic as only he can. Relax, close your eyes, and experience the waves crashing onto the wet sand like the earth's own breathing.

This title is part of a collection of audio experiences created to deliver your best sleep during this difficult time. While we’re giving this away for free, we’ll also be donating meals daily through Newark Working Kitchens so those in need and first responders don’t go to bed hungry.

Pulls Me Back to Days of Hope

I went to D-Y Regional High School on Cape Cod, and biked to the beach whenever I needed a break from teenage turmoil. Fortunately, the waves never cease, and neither will the peace they bring.

Sleep

Blissful sleep. Since downloading this recording I can sleep! I can’t believe it. Yes I know this sounds hokey but I haven’t slept well for years. Who knew all I need was the sound of the ocean.

This is an awesome complimentary source! Really helped me to fall asleep, literally made my brain feel like it was just walking along the seashore.

Love this so much

My ancestors settled on the North East Coast, so I time travel back listening to this, feeling the cool humidity, the smell and taste of salt in the air, the bracing caress of the wind. I can see the beach and the beach grass, and hear the absence of trees that I know were once there. Its just so moody and delicious. It also sounds like night. Feeding my imagination with the sight, sound, taste, smell and feeling of the landscape. Thank you for this.

Very Relaxing Ocean Waves

The ocean waves lapping on the shore’s beach is extremely soothing and tranquil, whether you’re doing yoga, meditating or going to sleep.

Waves of relaxation

Just under an hour of wave sounds. This is really relaxing to have playing in the background or before sleep.

Also appreciate that the audible messages at the beginning and end of the recording have been omitted so they don't bring you out of the relaxation with a jolt.

Another classic meditation, beautifully recorded

This is one of the better recordings of the classic wave sound meditation, the production is really well done. Personally I would use this after a short spoken meditation to help me drift away to sleep.

Relaxing sea

Who would have thought that listening to the sounds of waves crashing on shore would take away the tensions of the past days. I slept longer than I have done for weeks after listening to the sounds of the sea. Must be the tribe memory of my ancestors, who were seafarers, which reacted to the sounds.

Simple yet beautiful piece of waves gently resting on the shore. Took me away to somewhere else.
