Wind Chimes in the Rain

by King Tet

The sound of a rainstorm can be very therapeutic and a powerful de-stressor as a break from today's modern soundtrack of freeway noise and TV commercials.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
***NEW*** "Wind Chimes in the Rain" has been featured on NPR's "Living on Earth" program as the "EarthEar" of the week selection for the week of November 11th 2005!

The "Sounds of Our Planet" series is dedicated to preserving and sharing natural sounds that one might find relaxing, intriguing, uplifting and fascinating. The listener is invited to enjoy these recordings for background ambience, for study, for centering of spirit or simply for amusement.

These recordings are made with care to retain a natural feel so the listener can truly experience "being there" simply by playing a CD.

Second in the series is "Wind Chimes in the Rain" a 78 minute recording of a heavy rainstorm in Modesto, California recorded in February 1986. This 3 dimensional recording puts the listener in the middle of a heavy rainfall with occasional ambient sounds from wind chimes and distant midnight trains.

Notes from the sound archivist:

"Do you find the sound of rain drops relaxing? As the air is being cleansed and the earth is being replenished with life-giving water, perhaps one's spirit also enjoys cleansing and replenishment? The sound of a rainstorm can be very therapeutic and a powerful de-stressor as a break from today's modern soundtrack of freeway noise and TV commercials.
Wind Chimes In The Rain, was recorded nearly 20 years ago in Modesto, California, February 18th, 1986 from about 10:30 pm thru midnight during a very heavy rainstorm. The recording lasts about 78 minutes and the rain never lets up! Throughout this recording the rain is constant although it starts heavy, lightens up for awhile and gets heavy again. You will also notice the wind chimes from time to time and the distant sound of trains going by.

This 3 dimensional recording puts you right in the middle of the storm! Using modern remastering techniques, tape noise has been removed from the original recording, revealing the clear sound of the rainstorm and natural ambience. I hope you will enjoy this time capsule of the sounds of heavy rain in California."
Eric Van der Wyk

Windchimes in the Rain
This CD is so relaxing I am so glad I bought it. I put it on and I can be to sleep in minutes. The rain and distant thunder is so relaxing with the tinkle of windchimes blowing in the wind. I also like the train whistle I can hear in the background. I highly recommend this CD.
