It is probably no coincidence and a wonder of some consistency that the human ear looks a lot like a shell spit out by that sea and washed ashore. That the sound of water gently dripping, waves shushing across a sandy beach or plunging against a rocky shore or waterfalls, or the sound of rain all have a calming effect and are common ambient details in countless compositions from classical to ambient to downbeats and songs such Riders on the Storm by the Doors. There is a relationship between these sounds of nature and our own relationship to the earth, to our surroundings. It is as if the sounds form a binding material between topography and soul.
