New Forest Sounds Ambient Music Podcast

Ambient Music Podcast Broadcast

The New Forest Sounds Ambient Music Podcast aims to bring the forest direct to you, through a selection of 100% relaxing, nature-inspired ambient music.

During this podcast, we’ll journey together in sound to some of the quiet places of England’s New Forest National Park. From the beauty of the forest as it awakens at first light, to gentle streams meandering through the woods. We’ll visit ethereal, misty moors, and even travel to the coast at Keyhaven to experience a smooth, glassy morning, and more besides.

We’ll hear birdsong like you’ve probably never heard it before, and there will be a couple of brain-teasers along the way too, where I play some forest sounds and give you the chance to see if you can recognise them. All you’ve got to do is settle back, press play and drift away with me for an hour. It’ll be nice to have you along.

Flat Calm at Keyhaven

Ambient Music Composition.

This quiet, gentle music composition tries to capture the ambience of a smooth, glassy morning at The New Forest’s tiny sailing hamlet of Keyhaven on the Solent.

Keyhaven has wonderful views of historic Hurst Castle and the distant Isle of Wight. There are two sailing clubs and a small pub. It’s quiet, peaceful and beautiful.

The village is part of the larger Keyhaven Nature Reserve, which spans almost 500 acres of land. With mudflats and salt marshes, the reserve is popular with a multitude of wildlife.

Saturday Beside the Stream

Ambient Music composition

Imagine relaxing with a favourite book, or taking a picnic beside one of The New Forest’s mesmerising and beautiful meandering streams. If you can’t be there in person, then perhaps this may serve as the next best thing. Absolutely designed to be dreamy. Drift away….

Forest Awakening

Ambient Music Composition

I woke up one morning listening to the dawn chorus, and the thought struck me that it would be interesting if I could try to ‘conduct’ an orchestra of forest birds and animals, and have them sing or sound in perfectly in rhythm, and by the wonders of recording technology I’ve managed to do that within this composition, which aims to create an almost classical, English pastoral feel and evokes The New Forest waking up first thing in the morning.

Dusk Rider

Ambient Music Composition

A composition inspired by the sight of horseriders taking a very late evening ride across The New Forest. I’ve tried to incorporate the sounds of their hooves moving by to create rhythmic interest in the piece, and attempted to use the sound of a hunting owl to form one of the principal melody lines.
