Sounds Apps-olutely Relaxing



Over the last year Tosh Lubek Productions has worked with The Sound Tourist to create the audio for a series of apps designed to help people relax and unwind. The apps are all about escapism, dreaming, finding a place of peace and serenity, whenever you feel like it.  Each one captures some of life’s blissful moments, allowing the listener to transport their mind to a beautiful, idyllic place.

We helped The Sound Tourist to record an original narrative and create a soundscape that incorporated organic sounds recorded outdoors on location, in places of outstanding beauty, in Ayrshire and Argyll.  The combination of the sounds, narrative and the listeners imagination will give them a very real and pleasant experience.


The Sound Tourist, who enjoys the outdoors, said "I’ve carefully chosen the setting for each app, many of the sounds will be familiar to you and so you'll find these safe and comforting, allowing you to build on your own memories and positive experiences, so you can drift along on your own journey or join mine."

 The Sound Tourist has initially released three apps in the series, "The Woodman's Fire", recorded on an evening in a forest clearing in Argyll in Scotland; "Bonnie Doon", recorded on an idyllic summer’s day by the banks of the River Doon where Robert Burns once walked; and "Turnberry Sunset", recorded on the remote sands of Turnberry shore.

Using the latest recording and creative technology we were able to weave together location sounds, music and narrative that will help the listener find some peace and serenity in their busy life.

The three apps are now available from Google Play for download onto mobile devices and can be found by searching for their names or keywords "relax" and "escapism".

The Sound Tourist hopes listeners will find these apps beneficial and rewarding and that they will help listeners find some peace and serenity in a busy life". Tosh Lubek Productions wish The Sound Tourist every success with this release and look forward to further additions to the series of relaxation apps.
