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.

I love it! I find it relaxing and use it at night

I feel like I'm in the middle of the ocean! It's perfect to go to bed listening to this because Mr Hempton doesn't use a loop like all nature sound machines do. I saw that he also has another audiobook and I just purchased it. I highly recommend this audiobook if any one wants to unwind or to fall asleep. If you put headphones on, you can close your eyes and pretend to not live in the city. :) Note: The only 'con' would be the "This is Audible" announcement at the beginning. I find this very loud and distracting when playing this in the middle of the night.

Great listening for falling asleep.

I like to play it on nights I feel like I can not quiet my brain.

Reminds me of being at the cottage on the coast

It is a lovely soundtrack to listen to going to sleep. it reminds me of sleeping with the window open and listening to waves on the coast as a child. It creates a perfect white noise background to drown out street noise in the city.

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.

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.
