About this app

Environments is a historic catalog of long form field recordings created for the way you live. Whether you need to work, meditate, sleep, or any other use, Environments is the only ambient sound app based on extended recordings created in the 1960s and 70s on analog tape. Environments began as an unprecedented series of vinyl records, garnering widespread acclaim and selling millions of units. Now Environments steps into the mobile age as an invaluable and unique sonic tool for the way YOU live.

• No internet connection required — all recordings are part of the app.

• 23 fully remastered long-form analog recordings, most 30 minutes or more. Not short loops, not white noise — Environments live and breathe like nature itself.

• Simple, intuitive navigation. Unobtrusive, ad-free look and feel evokes a simpler, better time.

• Put your favorite environment on infinite loop, or build your own playlist of favorites.

• Blocks distractions, increases focus and mindfulness, reduces stress, helpful with tinnitus and fussy babies.

• Sounds include ocean waves, birdsongs and dawn chorus, chimes, "be-in", thunderstorms, gentle rain, heartbeat, wind in trees, wordless choir, summer cornfield, creaky sailboat, country stream, country meadow, blizzard, and many more.

• Features informative biography of Environments creator Irv Teibel, along with concise informational screens on individual recordings.

• The only app ever shortlisted for the best historic album Grammy award.

• A co-creation of Syntonic Research, Inc and the Grammy-nominated reissue label Numero Group.

• "It's intuitive, beautifully minimalist, and a perfect evolution of the original work." — Boing Boing

• "A remarkably creative way to reintroduce Teibel’s work and ideas… something great and sublime." — The New Yorker

• "Enjoy nature exactly the way God intended it, as an App." — Vice

• "The music of the future isn't music." — Irv Teibel

The content is excellent, but the app doesn't support casting or airplay, so I can't play the audio on my stereo. This is a major flaw, as such it only works with headphones.

These are quality recordings I have enjoyed for years on vinyl and cassette. 'Wind In the Trees' is about my favorite, with bird sounds adding to the ambient sound. These are the real recordings that others have tried to emulate. Enjoy!

Clean app, classic sounds, totally worth it to have these all in one place. I am done with short loops!
