Fieldrecording of a North Sea coast forest meadow

 

A psychoacoustic 8 hour edited field recording of a rainy spring day, may 2018 at a meadow in the ancient Zorgvliet forest between The Hague and Scheveningen, located on the North Sea coast. Pleasant rain showers, a clearing, swaying archaic trees, winds coming in from far lands and distant thunder…so fresh you will smell the forest dew!

For deep relaxation, falling asleep, hyperfocus, studying, tripping out, meditation, anti anxiety, anti-stress, anti-tinitus or turning your urban dwellings into a forest.

I made this as a kind of psychoacoustic experiment – Inspired by the likes of Irving Solomon ‘Irv’ Teibel  (https://www.irvteibel.com ). I often use field recordings of rain, forests, seashores etc. to fall asleep to, especially when sleep is difficult during tours etc. I wanted to make a sort of ‘sleep program’ in which the field recording goes through different phases ‘in sync’ with the ultradian sleep cycle (the different stages of the sleep cycle). Some of the parts are looped, faded in and out according to the different phases of the sleep cycle – A clearing comes after the rain, a light wind comes in, trees start to sway, distant thunder comes closer and the rain returns again – events that occur (very roughly) in time with your brain going into deeper sleep territories. This recording has also been enhanced discretely with theta-wave frequency modulation. Theta waves are brain waves that that neuro-oscillate around 4-7 Hz and are associated with mental relaxation and a positive feeling of well being. In short, this is achieved with a simple audioeffect rack in Ableton where I used some filters that slightly modulate certain parts of the  frequency spectrum with Theta wave frequencies – you won’t notice it but your unconscious brain will…….I guess in theory…I don’t know if it really works just try it…you might be overwhelmed by a wave of pleasant tranquillity.

a very Blair Witchian scene at the meadow

The geographical coordinates for this fieldrecording area are aprox.52°05’23.8″N 4°17’18.1″E – 52.089953, 4.288367– Its a fantastic little forest –  with a heavy fairytale gnome vibe, the meadow even has a little old witch house that is used as a bee sanctuary.


can you see the witch house?

Legowelt Remix for Leonie Pernet’s Auaati

Out now!!! my remix for Leonie Pernet’s ‘Auaati’ featuring Hanaa Ouassim on vocals – on the French infine records- also with a very cool Acid Arab remix and the original song. Get it here or I am sure it will creep up in your local recordstore in the near future – or is it!? I am not sure if its digital only or also going to be on vinyl – let me check that and I will come back to this 😉

The lyrics translated into english from arabic:

At your side I tasted the sweetness of sweet days
All these nights in Paradise, I do not count them anymore
I can not think of you anymore
