Earth: Sounds of the Forest

Leaves crunching under one’s feet, one is also conscious of the silence except for the wind. Nature is going to rest (mostly) for a few months and the summers’s lively sounds are being replaced by a wind whistling through increasingly bare branches. These videos bring back that sound.

 

Then there’s the sounds of the Summer; crickets, owls, frogs, and the noise made by living things, animal and vegetable who have to pack a lot of their life in the several weeks when food is plentiful and the weather warm.

Rain and Thunder

Listening to the rain hit the pavement at night and the water running down the sidewalk towards the sewers. Thundery summer afternoons listening to the monsoon-like rains washing away the grime of the previous day’s heat. Waves on the shore, the legendary roar of a waterfall. These are the soothing sounds of water.

Air: Birds of a Feather

Whether its owls at sunset, bird sounds at dawn, or the eagle’s lonely cry…birds remind us of a world without concrete walls, borders, and of a time when forests covered the world almost unbroken. For me, birds are early morning music that played before the traffic really started up.

Around the Fire

For some, fire may be strange to consider as a type of relaxing sound. But if you’ve ever sat in front of a fireplace, around the campfire, or next to a hot pellet stove, the contained roar and crinkle and warmth can be very relaxing. Imagine a cold winter night next to a hot old-fashioned stove. The mild scent of burning wood, the warmth you can feel going up from your toes to the scalp. You turn the lights off, letting the fire provide the light, and for a moment are taken back to the days when this was the p>Continue reading Relax Around the Warm and Soothing Fire
