New hour of ambient relaxation music, set to Rain ambience
I’m writing with news of a new “private” music/sound release. I say “private” because it’s not really a big official release like my CD “Beneath Another Sky” etc.
This is a one-hour uninterrupted piece of ambient/relaxation music, set to the sound of falling rain. I’ve called it “Relaxing Rain Ambience”.
I started this project by recording the rainfall in a nearby woodland area. On listening to it, I felt that the rain sound didn’t get “rich” enough, so on a different day I also recorded the sound of another heavier rainfall and this time I recorded it right outside my house. This gave a better sound because water was trickling down the walls and onto the rocks and cement, as well as trickling down the gutter with a nice clucking sound.
I mixed the two sounds (the one from the woodland and the one from outside my house) together and I felt it gave a pretty nice rich rain sound. Strangely, as if by some weird coincidence, the two one-hour rain recordings kind of seem to follow each other in intensity. When the “woodland rain” picks up the intensity, the “home rain” does the same thing – even though they were recorded on two separate days.
Once I had the full hour of rain sound, I started listening to it for long periods of time, and whilst listening to it I started to play with musical ideas that I felt came naturally and went well together with the rain. After a few weeks I arranged some of these musical ideas into long piece of ambient relaxation music that plays for a full one hour, with very little repetition.
I then mixed the music and the rain together, resulting in a kind of peaceful, refreshing, ambient music hour. It’s meant for scene-setting, relaxing, rest and recovery, and to help concentrate while working. It’s not really meant for “intense listening”.
Anyway, I hope you’ll take the time to listen to the 3-minute preview file that I have created. This release is only available to buy as a download, from my music download shop. It costs US$ 8.99. If you buy it, you get the full one-hour mp3 file (256 kbps) and hi-res printable cover artwork.
The price US$ 8.99 is for personal use / home listening only, and can be purchased from my music download shop.
If you want to license this audio for commercial or in-public use (such as in a spa, relaxation centre, treatment/massage clinic, in a shop, on TV etc.), you can also buy it from www.shockwave-sound.com for $19.95. This price then includes a license to use the music commercially and in public.
“Relaxing Rain Ambience” is the 5th in a series of “relaxation music set to nature sound” recordings that I have created over the past few years. The other four are: “Relaxing Amazon Evening”, “Relaxing Seaside Ambience”, “Relaxing Campfire Ambience” and “Relaxing Forest Ambience”. All are available at $8.99 each from www.lynnepublishing.com/downloadshop.html
