Hear the gentle shuffle of sand when you stroll across the beaches of Mantigue Island in this ASMR video experience. Enjoy the sounds of nature as you marvel at the diverse greenery and multi-hued turquoise waters that await you in this protected marine sanctuary.
This 360-degree immersive sound video puts the viewer right in the center of the action. Experience the sound where they happen—a gushing river to your left, a trickle of water on your right, and the thud of footsteps below. Recorded using Ambisonics, audio is captured in a 360-degree sphere from the position of the microphone. For best listening results, put on a pair of open back headphones, but any headphones or even earbuds will work.
You can also leave this on in the background as unobtrusive, calming noises as you go about your day.
The Department of Tourism invites you to go on an ambient sound trip and experience a destination through the distinct sounds that can be heard when all is quiet. When we travel, we go “sightseeing,” but it is with our ears that we hear and sense things all around us. This is the first in a series of videos that will explore the natural sounds of a place, allowing viewers to tune into nature and be fully present in the moment.
