10 hours video of Arctic ambience

Post by alternating.bit » Tue Feb 07, 2017 6:25 am

This is hauntingly brilliant.


10 hours video of Arctic ambience with frozen ocean, ice cracking, snow falling, icebreaker idling and distant howling wind sound. Natural white noise sounds generated by the wind and snow falling, combined with deep low frequencies with delta waves from the powerful icebreaker idling engines, recorded at 96 kHz - 24 bit and designed for relaxation, meditation, study and sleep.

Holy shit. I'm only a few minutes into this, and I think I've found a new accompaniment at the office. Thanks for posting. Brilliant.

That's captivating. I love that we live in a world where people record things like this.

Wholeheartedly agree. For more in a similar vein but with visuals there is a feature length film Dead Slow Ahead of life on a freighter. All the sound is composed from audio recorded during the filming. Visuals are gorgeous too.

Thanks for bumping this. Been meaning to give this a listen in a float tank.

Probably end up channeling The Thing :cthulhu:
