This CD features 78 continuous minutes of the sound of the surf. It is a specially mastered soundscape for the sensitive ears of infants, with no volume “spikes” or other irregularities – just the smooth sound of the surf. Only the natural sound of the surf is featured - no wildlife sounds or musical accompaniment. Using your player’s “repeat play” mode allows continuous play all night! This disc provides a totally natural, rhythmic, and calming sleep-promoting atmosphere. This beautiful soundscape helps mask the irritating and irregular nuisance noises of traffic, lawnmowers, and barking dogs. This is a great disc for mommy too - provides an escape to a private beach. This CD was created from a live recording at Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.
Hospital nurseries and neonatal intensive care units across the Unites States use discs such as this one to help promote infant sleep. Until the last few hundred years, most of man''s existence was near the sea, as his survival depended on the sea. This CD "brings us back" to what sustains us.
This is a sound recording made by new parents to benefit other new parents. There are many other sound recordings of ocean waves on the market. Unfortunately most are not suitable for bedtime. Many contain the sounds of squawking seagulls or distant boats. Bird noises are not natural for nighttime, instead they signal the time to wake. Most ocean waves recordings attempt to magnify the dynamic range of the sound of the surf such that the waves crash at a thunderous volume with near silence afterwards. The white noise of the post-crash water rush is usually removed or attenuated. Such manipulation can indeed make for an exhilarating listening experience. But that’s not what we were after with this disc. Instead, this recording was made on a peaceful wind-free night, when the birds were silent and the surf was gentle. Our goal was to replicate exactly what you would hear if you were sitting on the beach on a warm, wind-free summer night. Our goal was to create a disc that would, when using “repeat-play,” provide an all-night true-to-life “oceanfront” listening experience.
