Pure Sound of Rain in the Forest

Artist: George Vlad
Chichester, England
Recommended charity: British Trust for Ornithology

What does rain sound like? It’s a myriad individual raindrops hitting a variety of surfaces. They might also interact with one another, forming larger raindrops that sound heavier. The environment will also affect the perceived sound – rain falling on soft leaves will sound completely different to rain falling on a coniferous forest floor. The acoustics of the environment will affect how much echo and reverb reaches the listener (or the microphones). This will also affect how open and bright or dark and claustrophobic the soundscape will be. is a completely free streaming service of 900+ nature sounds from around the world, offering natural soundscapes and guided meditations for people who wish to listen to nature, relax, and become more connected.
