Sounds of the sea
Have you ever asked your relatives or friends what associations arise in their mind when they hear the word “sea”? Ask them for the sake of curiosity.
I'm sure that you will get different answers, but almost all of them will be positive. Someone associates the sea with flight and inspiration, someone sees in it power and pacification, but the major part of respondents will mention happy summer days and long-awaited vacation...
All these words you will hear in their answers: freedom, serenity, relaxation, fun, beauty, summer, life... Words that sound like music for all of us...
Of course, there will always be those who will compare it with a big pool of salt water, or, as many seamen say, the sea is a long, hard and dangerous job... But I'm absolutely certain that somewhere deep inside they have special feelings about it.
Do you remember what the hero of “Knockin' on Heaven's Door” says about the sea? “You stand on the beach and taste the salty smell of the wind that comes from the ocean, and inside you feel the warmth of never ending freedom, and on your lips the bitter, tear-soaked kiss of you lover”. Nice words.
It's safe to say that not only the main heroes of this film dream about the sea. We all dream to lie on the beach at least for a while and listen to the sound of splashing waves and screams of sea-gulls. But what can we do if our vacation is over, the sea and summer activities are far away, and the calendar shows “November”?
We found a way out! It`s connected with how we perceive external information. We get about 90% of information with the help of our eyes (visual type of perception); 9% - with the help of our ears (sound perception), and only 1% of it we take from other sense organs (touch, taste, smell). So, if we turn on the sounds of the seashore, lie down on the bed, and close our eyes (thereby turning off 90% of visual perception), we will find ourselves on the sea...
Such audiolization improves your mood and sleep, calms down your nervous system, and helps fight with stress and depression. Listening to these sounds you can get a massage, sleep or meditate.
Those sounds of the sea, splashing waves, and sea-gull-screams, that we propose you to listen to on this site, were recorded very close to the real sea with the help of 2 microphones. One mike we put near a small creek, the other – on the shore.
That's how we overlaid two sea sounds: the sounds of waves come from afar, but the sounds of splashing water are close, near the stones. In this way we created a very realistic sound picture of the seashore.
