At Peace with Nature

Relaxing Sounds for Mindful Moments ~ by Clive Williamson & Symbiosis

Immersing ourselves in nature has been shown to reduce stress and bring remarkable benefits to our mood and our health. These relaxing recordings of natural environments help to evoke a sense of peace by transporting the listener to refreshing outdoor spaces on a series of tranquil ‘virtual nature walks’.

Connect with the Healing Powers of Nature through Sound!

At Peace with Nature offers a wonderful way to connect with natural places and experiences by capturing the sounds of countryside, rainforest & woodland; ocean & sea; river, rain & streams. Recorded in locations ranging from the Australian bush to Devon’s coast and the Amazon rainforest, it features beautiful song from birds in England, Australia, New Zealand and Colombia and is ideal for all lovers of nature and anyone who would like to experience the restorative power of the natural world but can’t manage to do so at first hand.

Sound designer and musician Clive Williamson has drawn on his experience as a Producer and Studio Manager with the BBC to create this wonderful album of natural sounds. Recording over 25 years in four countries – and on three different continents – he has combined a life-long love of nature with the best digital studio techniques to bring us this remarkable collection of natural soundscapes.

Created in ‘Lockdown’ to make Nature more accessible!

Sound designer and musician Clive Williamson followed the shocking events of 2020 as thousands of people became ill with the COVID-19 virus, inundating hospitals in the UK and worldwide. It was obvious that both NHS hospital staff and Care Home workers were becoming overworked and stressed as a result of the pandemic. Simultaneously there were many reports that people in lockdown were appreciating and benefitting from nature more: either walking in natural surroundings near their homes or simply enjoying the beautiful sounds of water, the wind in the trees, and soothing local birdsong, which was revealed in the unusual stillness of towns and cities with reduced plane, train and traffic noise.

Clive also saw a massive increase in the number of listeners streaming his previous albums of nature sounds from New Zealand, so he decided to use lockdown to complete a dream project he had been planning for several years… A new album full of relaxing sounds from nature that he had collected while travelling as a sound recordist and music producer in England, Australia, NZ, and Colombia.

Virtual Nature Walks for everyone

Using musical sensibilities gained from working with the group Symbiosis, he has chosen to treat nature like an orchestra, creating a ‘natural symphony’ with the calming effects of nature as his central theme. “I wanted to make it easy for listeners to go on refreshing ‘virtual nature walks’,” he says, “The peaceful ‘postcards in sound’ on this album are ideal for relaxing and replenishing at home, in the office, or while travelling, and are designed to give instant access to the ‘natural health service’ that so many people love.”

Free downloads for NHS staff & Care Home workers, and sales will support Hospital Garden Charities

In particular, Clive wants to contribute directly to the wellbeing of those who helped so much during the pandemic, so he is offering all NHS staff and Care Home workers a free download of At Peace with Nature until the end of 2021. As an added bonus for the NHS, Symbiosis will donate half the profits from CD and download sales (up to 31st December 2021) to UK Charities and Hospital Trusts funding Gardens and Healing Spaces in hospitals… starting with those closest to him in Devon. Clive says, “My wife, Nora and I love natural spaces and gardens, and it’s easy to see how beneficial they could be for hospital staff, patients, and visitors alike! I hope that At Peace with Nature will make a difference for many people needing to find moments of tranquillity in their daily lives.”
