Bought this CD called "Thunderstorm" made by Dr. Jeffrey Thompson. According to the notes it's a 3-D binaural recording of gently falling rain with rolling thunder off in the distance embedded with "alpha brainwave pulses" that apparently promotes relaxation. 3-D binaural recording is when sensitive mics that "hear" just as the human ear does are placed on a dummy head at the ear locations to pick up the sounds exactly as we perceive in our own heads. I remember Edgar Froese of Tangerine Dream experimenting with this in the 1970s. I had a solo album by him called "Upland" or there was a piece on it called "Upland" but, anyway, it was recorded that way.

I ripped it onto my portable drive and took it to work and played it for my office mates. They love it. I was obliged to set it up for endless repeats while I came home to have lunch--where I am right now. Thompson has another CD featuring rolling, gently breaking waves. Maybe I'll pick that one up next.

Anyone else hear these sound therapy CDs and what do you think?

Have you read "The Men Who Stare At Goats"?

No but I just saw the "Goat Rodeo" dvd. I hear it's practically the same thing.

I tried something similar with the sound of the ocean, but it made me irriatable. However, I may give Thunderstorm a try the next time I have a long plane trip and cannot sleep.
