Noise Masking

One of our listeners described the sounds outside her apartment: construction work, a nearby highway, flightpaths overhead, and a neighbour with a fondness for death metal!

Yes, we all know life can get noisy. It can be irritating and distracting. Often, it is not the actual loudness of sounds, but their character that is distressing.

In situations like this, you need to take control, and create your own natural, sonic environment.

These albums are both vibrant, and of consistent sonic richness to mask out those ever-present clamours around you.
