Curious what it sounds like underwater?
Oceans contain between 50% - 80% of all life on Earth.
Sounds of the Ocean is an immersive sound experience to support our highest wellbeing. Together, we sonically travel 3000 feet beneath the ocean's surface listening to recordings of ocean life from the deep waters of Monterey Bay Canyon just off the shores of Northern California.
We combine these sounds with live instruments including the handpan, voice, crystal bowls, gongs, clarinet, kalimba and ambient percussion to guide you through a special musical journey. Our musicians are highly skilled in the disciplines of sonic wellness and work in the health and music industry as composers, producers and writers of supportive mindful content.
We use FM transmitter wireless headphones with excellent sound clarity and quality to listen, so there is no bad seat in the house. You will hear each sound with incredible detail and feel like you are right next to the stage. For those with sensitive ears, our headphones provide the ability to adjust your own volume controls independently. If you would prefer to use speakers, we can arrange this setup as well for your space.
We can scale the event based on your groups needs and are able to travel to your retreat center, meeting space or other outdoor area to offer a safe, socially distanced experience for everyone.
"The raw, unadulterated sounds of our oceans and their wondrous living creatures combined with your special giftedness in bringing them to us in a way that goes straight to the heart made for one of the best meditations I've ever experienced. Thank you so much! "

where we have been
Costa Rica Retreat Centers
To reinvent our offering during the global pandemic, we have transitioned to a fully immersive wireless headphones experience. Launching in March 2021, we hit the road for Costa Rica to share the journey at different retreat centers around this Eco-conscious country. The sound experience is a perfect add-on to an existing wellness retreat program, or hosted as a special standalone experience to help guests drop into a deeper state of rest and relaxation during their stay.

NOAA Exhibit Opening
We offered a short version of the experience to support the opening of a new sound exhibit in Santa Cruz, California. Together with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary, the intention of this event is to demonstrate the power of sound as a tool for scientific research and education. This collaboration integrates the spheres of science and art to shine light on the acoustic dimension of environmental stewardship and stimulate new methods of growing human care of all life on Earth.
Burning Man 2019
Sounds of the Ocean was featured at the playa for this years annual gathering of over 70,000 people. We supplied spatial sound recordings for the 3D sound exhibit called Root Cathedral, presented by SevenFlower Space, a collective of artists, activists and educators. The space was a welcomed respite from the hot desert climate, where participants could hear soothing sounds of the water, whales and relaxing instruments. Proximity sensors triggered localized sounds by walking closer to certain areas of the exhibit. Learn More

"People ask: Why should I care about the ocean? Because the ocean is the cornerstone of earth's life support system, it shapes climate and weather. It holds most of life on earth. 97% of earth's water is there. It's the blue heart of the planet - we should take care of our heart. It's what makes life possible for us."
