  • In Patagonia: Underwater Rain, get an expansive collection of rain  recorded underwater with hydrophones. Hear tiny soothing droplets landing on glassy water and dense torrential downpours falling onto the glacial lagoon. Hear wind driven icebergs rubbing and creaking like otherworldly animals and hyper-pressurized air bubbles popping with weird bird-like chirps and songs. It's like hearing a forest during a storm, but instead of creaking branches and birds, the rubbing icebergs and bubble birds fill the underwater forest soundscape. 
  • This library offers you a large collection of alpine precipitation unlike anything you've probably heard before. I hope you enjoy listening to the natural music of the weather as it sings through the stunning landscapes of Patagonia. 


  • All recordings were made underwater in the Torre Glacier lagoon and Lago Capri
  • Light, moderate, and heavy underwater rain
  • Otherworldly iceberg creaking, rubbing, and groaning
  • Mythical bubble-birds chirping and singing eerie songs
  • These recordings were originally made at 192 kHz sampling rate. They have been pitched down 2 octaves and are delivered at 48 kHz. So these files are four times their original length. Keep that in mind when looking at the specs. 


  • When I first listened to these recordings, I thought they were awful—they do sound terrible at normal speed. However, when pitched down two octaves from 192 kHz to 48 kHz, magic happens. The way the raindrops hit the water makes the rain much more ultrasonic, causing it to sound hissy and piercing at normal speed. But when slowed down, it sounds amazing.
  • Most of these recordings were made in a glacier lagoon under weird conditions. All the icebergs bunched up and rubbed together due to a rock peninsula that allowed a little water through but kept the icebergs confined. The icebergs were so dense that there wasn’t enough room for the wind to create waves. Consequently, the wild Patagonia winds thrashed the icebergs around, but all they could do was rub against each other. They creaked, groaned, purred, grunted, and crackled. Adding rain to the mix created a crazy soundscape where the icebergs’ creaks and bubble chirps replaced the emotive branch creaks and birdsong of a real forest in a storm. 
  • I love discovering sounds I didn’t know existed during recording expeditions. Glaciers have yet to disappoint, and I continue to find new sounds that captivate me and make me feel alive and lucky to hear them. I hope you enjoy listening.
