Autumn River MP3 © features peaceful, relaxing running water sounds on a wilderness autumn night. Washes away stress! Now available here!

Nature Sounds and only Nature Sounds!

Here is the place to find peaceful relaxation, a place to connect to the music of nature and the natural world, and to reconnect (using recorded sound and soundscapes) with our own inner natural pace, and with the true tempo of Life.

These recordings are not mere sound effects, or noise. Our extensive experience in the natural world, formal musical training, university music degree, and broadcast industry experience, enables us to find, recognize, and cleanly reproduce those natural sounds which have a special musicality. Most of our sounds are recorded using binaural methods, which give a 3D listening experience when using headphones. Without headphones you will enjoy your usual listening experience.

Nature Sounds... and only Nature Sounds!

Following this ideal of only nature sounds, no musical instrument sounds are added to our recordings. Yet, music is still being created! In the sounds of nature, there is pitch and tempo, melodies and choruses, which are all being created by a multitude of animate and inanimate players. In a careful, respectful and loving manner, natural sounds are recorded and edited, or sometimes mixed and arranged, into finished artistic soundscapes. A great amount of care is taken in microphone location and locale. The objective is to create the most realistic nature experience possible, and hence, the greatest compliment to hear is: "It sounds like they just stick a microphone in the air."

Nature sounds for Relaxation and Meditation

Nature sounds are ideal to use as a background when practicing relaxation or meditation. The slower pace and the constant ambience of nature sounds causes both the mind and the body to relax. Listening to natural sounds can also trigger memories of pleasant past experiences, and these memories, for today's typical urban dweller, are usually of past vacations or excursions, and of childhood experiences. The slow tempo of repetitive soothing sounds of the higher end of the frequency spectrum have an especially relaxing effect on the pysche.

The sounds of running water, like those of water falls, streams, rivers, rain yield a broadband noise especially good at masking noise. Plus, the natural rhythms, combined with the randomness of nature sounds, calms and holds the attention better than mechanical or software sources. Having problems sleeping? Use the sounds of crickets in the background. Since the dawn of time, its a background sound that countless generations have listened to as they sleep. We have a website devoted entirely to sounds for sleeping at Sleepy Nature

More Testimonials

This evening I purchased the CD length versions of Sleepy Cricket Night, Meditation Brook. Sleepy Cricket and Meditation Brook are both wonderful recordings and are exactly what I was looking for.

Aaron, Canada

Just like to say I have had 5 of your long tracks now for around 3 and a half years. Got to be one of the best sound purchases I have ever made. I use them all the time at work (I work in a busy office) where they really help me concentrate. My 8 1/2 year old boy has been sent to sleep with them since he was 5 and he still loves them. Just visiting you site again now and I'm sure I'm going to be buying some more from you...

Richard, UK.

Fantastic recording! I had previewed several other recordings of the same type and even some of the "sound machines" available. None even came close to your outstanding recordings...


What a beautiful Cricket CD you have made! I love it so much. I listen to it at night for relaxation at bedtime. I always fall asleep. The sound quality is excellent. The long play time is excellent, too.

Lisa, Maryland, USA

I wanted to let you know that I am so happy I found your website. I currently live in a rental that has quite a nice view of nature, but the traffic noise, and noise in the building is very distracting. I purchased 2 of your waterfall MP3's which provide a perfect background nature sound to block out the unwanted noise. I am listening to the Kakabeka Falls MP3 right now, and am loving it. Thank you for providing an atmosphere of beautiful nature sounds! I am recommending your website to others.

Janet, Spokane, USA
