Listen to the Relaxing Sound of an Arctic Icebreaker Breaking Ice

Sunday March 24, 2019 Written by Smith

Need to drown out the noise of the world? This 10-hour recording of a Norwegian icebreaker doing its slow, ASMR-inducing thing should do the trick.

According to the description the video contains 10 hours of "Arctic ambience with frozen ocean, ice cracking, snow falling, icebreaker idling and distant howling wind sound.

"Natural white noise sounds generated by the wind and snow falling, combined with deep low frequencies with delta waves from the powerful icebreaker idling engines, recorded at 96 kHz — 24 bit and designed for relaxation, meditation, study and sleep."

We don’t have much more to say about this, other than that it should be watched (or rather, listened to) with the AC cranked up, the blinds drawn, and your speakers on full.
