Land Meets Sea

The intertidal zone refers to the area between high and low tides. It is the home of myriad critters that have learned how to survive in an extremely difficult environment. Aside from their main challenge of rotating between being submerged by seawater and exposed to the salty ocean air, they must also look out for the tumbling rocks, the pounding waves, and a blistering sun that can rapidly cause desiccation. Not to mention the evasion of predators coming from all sides: the ocean, the ground, and the air! it's amazing how such a harsh life can be hidden among such soothing sounds...

This soundscape relies on additional recordings by two fans of this website, Neil Creek (AUS) — who also shot the background picture for this generator — and Mike Paul (US). Together, they recorded both sides of the Pacific Ocean, achieving the widest 'stereoceanic' effect one can get! ;-)

  I spent a few days at a resort next to Myrtle Beach for a Beta Club Convention last year. I was expecting a fun time, but it was actually quite stressful. When I felt at peace, it was when I got to stay near the ocean. One time, late at night, I went out on my own, feeling and hearing the power and soul of the ocean. Remembering. These sliders help me dwell on that profound, sentimental experience.

  My rescued pupper suffers from nightmares, fear, and hyper-alertness/anxiety (she's very slowly and steadily healing). Right now I'm putting on this audio to help her sleep soundly and peacefully. <3

  Infra preset on Intertidal feels quite calming.

  I can hear mermaids flirting with my subconscious.

  As someone who's spent most of his life by the Pacific Ocean and now living by the Atlantic, I really appreciate the Pacific sounds. Yes, they do sound (and smell) different!

  "For the person looking to eliminate the bird noises, they are on the low treble band." There are birds on the mid band as well.

  I was lost in my work while Distant Ocean flattened the wrinkles of time.

  I just realized I spent the last hour or two listening to the Pacific Ocean preset. Really soothing for my ears.

  For the past month, I mainly listened to music while working but I had to come back to because music always ends up taking my focus away. I'm happy to come back to such a soothing noise.

  For the person looking to eliminate the bird noises, they are on the low treble band.

  I like this mix a lot but I'd like to remove the bird sounds - could anybody save me the time of going through each slider and waiting for it by telling me which one it falls under? Ususally they're labelled, which I always appreciate. Thanks.

  (nevermind, caught it - it's the pale blue mids slider) Thanks.

  First of all, thank you Stephane for this website! Someone shared the link on Tumblr and it has been quite a discovery. From all the soundscapes I love Intertidal the most. It reminds of school and college years living in my native Via del Mar in Chile. I live for eleven years in Germany and pretty far from the coast. I miss it. It also helps me to focus and it relaxes me. Thank you!

  I've suffered from severe tinnitus for 50 years - a constant 7 kHz tone I hear every waking moment. I never dreamed that sound itself could heal. I listen to Intertidal, with my calibration curve applied, and I am transported to a world of calm, peace, and serenity. I burst into tears the first time I played it; that hateful tone was nowhere to be heard. Dr. Pigeon, you have my sincere gratitude.

  This particular setting reminds me of sitting on the bank of the Columbia River in Astoria, Oregon listening to the waves lap at the shore and the pilings. Just needs the barking of sea lions - which my imagination is happy to provide. Thanks, Dr. Pigeon for letting me recreate a magical place.

  It helps me sleep. So relaxing.

  ← Rain, thunder, and roaring waves?

  Thanks a lot! I can completely imagine myself in an intertidal zone, with no one else around! Big round of applause.

  This paired with 'Mr Rhodes' is awesome. So calming, and it's so good at helping me study :)

  This paired with a quiet fireworks generator sounds like you're sitting on the beach with your toes in the cool water, distant festivities happening behind you. It's a great sense of peace without being too lonely, and is now my go-to sound for working. :)

  This soundscape inspires imagery of mermaids swimming beneath crystal blue waters, beckoning sailors to join them for an ill-fated swim.

  The sound of the waves softly splashing in this generator is magical. I've also been having trouble sleeping lately, this is perfect to listen to in order to calm me down so that I can finally rest.

  When I have to do a lot of work, I like to mix this soundscape with Harbor LP by tomppabeats. Immediate relaxation and focus.

  So relaxing, another roaring success. Job well done :)

  Thank you so much for this! I have ADD, so it takes me a really long time to do my homework, but with this playing into my headphones, I got my homework done in about half the time it usually takes me. Thank you!

  This combined with Anamnesis on the Humming setting is the perfect sound to listen to after two days of exams to calm down. Not many things work for me, but the effect of these generators is strong enough that I could finally relax. Thank you.

  This generator is the best! In fact, it is so good that I am weary of sleeping with it on,because I don't want to wet the bed! ;-p

  Beautiful, amazing, fantastic! Always a pleasure on the ears! Thank you!

  Did you read my mind? This is exactly what I needed: the ideal integration of Oceanli and my Irish Coast settings. Maybe now I can cope.

  ← Early morning showers

  This is PERFECT when combined with "Inner Loch" from the Irish Coast generator! It reminds me of going to Bar Harbor, a little costal town in Maine. I used to collect jellyfish in the morning along the pebbly shore and then at night I'd fall asleep to the sound of waves lapping against the rocks.

  I used to live on the Long Beach peninsula in Washington State. This is exactly what it sounds like.

  I combined this with Telecaster Licks and Fire Noise and it felt like me & my friends had set up camp after roaming the coastline all day.

  Just close your eyes and imagine yourself sitting in a shallow tidal pool at sunset. Everything is calm. This morning, I was having severe anxiety and needed to escape desperately while still remaining functional at work. The sound of the gentle lapping waves, the occasional seagull, and other creatures brought me back to a place of peace.
