Soothing, relaxing, melodious and rhythmic. The ocean is a drum beating out the rhythms of global and local weather changes. No other place is quite like the edge of the sea. Gordon Hempton - The Sound Tracker® has visited and captured numerous of those magical places.
OCEAN SHORES occur wherever land meets ocean. There are 372,000 miles (620,000 kilometers) of Ocean Shores in the world: high energy shorelines exposed to swells or low energy shorelines in areas protected from large swells and accordingly only exposed to much smaller waves generated by local winds. Both are subject to tidal action, in and out, through the littoral zone and its plant and wildlife smorgasbord, not to mention human activity.
This spatial collection of 101 carefully mastered shoreline sounds allow you to balance just the right amount of wave presence with appropriate wildlife to fit nearly every mood. Day or night, dune or forest, calm or windy, you will be able to craft your most compelling soundscapes. For example, distant ocean waves and clear gull cries or inspiring songbirds will produce a full frequency spectrum and depth of field. Need something more sheltered? One of the many cricket medleys combined with windblown dune grass will render an acoustic safe harbor for your audience to enjoy many pleasant vacation memories.
