Ocean is a Drum

The Ocean is a Drum

As barometric pressure raises and lowers, it beats upon the Ocean to send waves outward towards the shore. It is here, that we may carefully listen to an array of beats, from delicate laps and gurgles on up to heavy, crashing seas. In this recording, we duck into a massive, naturally hollowed out Sitka Spruce log–concert hall and musical instrument all-in-one. (Headphones or room speakers recommended as laptop speakers do not reproduce low frequencies well.)
