Creek Relaxation © is designed to invigorate and refresh the listener with the sounds of running water. An irresistible fresh spring flow brimming with the sounds of water splashing and spilling over rocks fills the recording. The positive, spirited flow of water features a constantly changing bubbling and gurgling sound. And even though it is constantly evolving, the resultant sound is remarkably constant throughout the entire hour.
To record Creek Relaxation © a small creek was selected, surrounded by forest and far from homes in an isolated valley. Recording was started in the twilight before dawn, which is one of the quietest times of the day. The location proved to be perfect for recording the current of water without any distractions. The result is a recording that sounds very open, immediate, alive, and overflowing with the renewal of spring energy.
Creek Relaxation © features a long 10 second fade-in at the beginning and a slow fade-out at the end so there are no sudden disturbing interruptions when played looped. Creek Relaxation © is a natural soundscape composed of edited digital stereo quasi-binaural field recordings. This recording technique produces a 3 dimensional audio image when listening with headphones. Creek Relaxation © is composed purely of creek sounds. There are no other sounds in this recording. Encoded at a bitrate of 192 kps for quality listening. Every moment of this recording is unique and true to its natural occurrence. There are no loops.
