Experience the relaxation and peace of mind that comes from being in a tranquil spot in nature. These pristine sounds of nature are very useful for making meditation easier, for sleep, for masking noisy environments, soothing airline travel, readying and studying or for bringing the serenity of nature into a city environment. Back in 1982, David & Steve Gordon were among the first to combine music and nature sounds. To create this nature sound series, they went into their studio achieves and chose their very best nature recordings and combined them using the most soothing sections. The result is a series of nature sound recordings that you can use when you need to create a peaceful environment wherever you are. These recordings are so well done that you feel transported to these serene places as soon as you hear them.



Deep Sleep Systems
COMPLETE ALBUM LIST
Say goodbye to insomnia! Deep Sleep Systems began when David & Steve Gordon found that the stress from the hours spent in the recording studio were often leaving them too tense at the end of the night to fall asleep. They discovered that they could use their skills as sound designers to create sleep sound recordings that helped them fall asleep. They found these sleeping sound recordings so effective that they decided to produce them for others to use as well. By using the advanced equipment in their recording studio they were able to pin point the brainwave frequencies and sound waves that contribute to deep restful sleep. For their nature sound recordings they searched through hundreds of hours of nature sounds to find sections that had only relaxing sounds with even dynamics, which is essential for deep sleep. Then they processed the soothing sleep sounds through their state of the art recording equipment to ensure that the sound frequencies were targeted to the part of the spectrum that result in the highest level of relaxation. They discovered that there were different kinds of nature sounds that were effective for sleep such as relaxing ocean waves, waterfall sounds, river sounds, rain sounds and more. Then they started creating sleep sounds using their sound design equipment such as white noise for sleep along with other sound spectrum colors. These white noise recordings turned out to be far more effective for sleep than so called sleep machines or white noise generators because David and Steve Grodon carefully adjust the white noise specifically for relaxation. Choose one of their sleep sound recordings and discover for yourself how easy it can be to fall asleep fast and stay asleep until morning. What a pleasure that is!
