Soundscapes – Reconnect with Nature

 

inookta studio inc. introduces Soundscapes, a new iOS app to reconnect with nature by exploring a collection of hundreds of immersive and high-quality soundscapes produced by passionate and renowned artists from around the world. Users can enjoy the Toucans in the Brazilian Amazon rainforest, at the foot of a glacier calving in Antarctica, or on the edge of an active volcano in Ethiopia.

 

 

“Listening is an essential resource that can open our minds to changes that are occurring now, as well as those to come.” indicated Fernand Deroussen, field recordist and composer.

 

The beauty of  listening to the world in which we live seems to be more essential every day, and it is in this context that sound ecology and field recording practices have developed. Around the world, passionate artists explore forests, deserts, winds, ice, the seabed, the interior of tree trunks and anthills, in search of unique and unexpected sounds: the wild world is an infinite source of inspiration.

 

Features:

  • Every week new, original and documented soundscapes selected by our team
  • The discovery of inspiring artists, their adventures and the ecosystems they explore
  • Smart playlists that adapt to the time of day
  • The benefits of nature sounds: concentration, relaxation, reduction of stress and anxiety, and the harmful effects these have on our health and that of the people around us

 

Soundscapes 1.1 is a free download on the App Store, worldwide. After a 30 day free trial, a subscription of $35.99 per year (or $4.49 per month) will allow unlimited streaming and access to all features. These revenues will be shared with the artists and help to cover the development costs of the project. Android and web versions will be developed in the upcoming months.
