Regular price $29.00 USD




    • In Alaska: Lake Waves, get a small collection of soothing waves from Lake Clark National Park, Alaska. Hear the power of the wind as it builds waves down the 40-mile lake. Hear gentle crackling through rounded pebbles and sloshing boats at dock. Hear crashing swells and trickling water percolating through wet rocks.
    • This library is packed full of tracks with soothing water from the rocky shorelines of the Arctic. Enjoy the melodic, gurgling water only rocky shorelines can create. 


      • Rock and stone covered beaches
      • Close and distant waves
      • Crashing, Sloshing, and Gurgling
      • Crackling and Swishing
      • Docked boat movement

                RECORDING STORIES:

                • Lake Clark is about 40 miles long and 5 miles wide. With this massive lake,  conditions can vary from glassy, to gentle lapping, to white-capped swells in the same day. The size of the lake mixed with the rocky beach made for excellent recording conditions. 
                • If you ever want to record waves, get knee or chest waders. These are invaluable, especially when the water temperature is just above freezing. I was able to wade out among the rocks and capture some lovely swishes and gurgles as the waves broke against the shoreline. 
                • My favorite sounds from the library are the "crackling" waves. These waves crackled like carbonated water! This was an extremely soft sound created by a gentle wave breaking among small pebbles. I was able to capture this lovely sound by holding my DPA 4060s a few inches above the water as the wave broke. 
                • Each recording session was usually followed by a short polar bear swim in the lake. Jumping in icy water is incredibly invigorating and I love the way it heightens my senses and makes me fully present in the moment and the surround environment.
