Vermont Sleep Sounds & Music was created by Jeff Perrin, an audio engineer and musician who knows first-hand about sleep loss and insomnia, having spent his entire adult life learning to cope with the sleep depriving effects of tinnitus and anxiety.
To create the best possible sounds for relaxing, Perrin spent over a year recording and producing the various music, white noise, and ambient nature tracks found within the app, using high-quality microphones and recording equipment. “I didn’t want to simply download foley tracks from online sound libraries, as I found many library tracks to be of either low quality, or designed more as background ambience for movie and TV soundtracks. Instead, I wanted to record fresh, authentic sounds produced to sound great over whichever device you have in your bedroom, be it a bluetooth speaker, a HomePod, or just your iPhone speakers. tvOS support offers even more options for Apple TV users with home theater surround speakers or sound bars.”
White noise and nature sounds were captured from various locations of Perrin’s home state of Vermont, and the music was composed and performed by Perrin himself. “One of my early sleep aids consisted of falling asleep to CDs of renowned classical guitarist Andre Segovia. However, one of the drawbacks of classical music is the more dynamic tracks tend to rouse you just as you’re falling asleep. With the music in Vermont Sleep Sounds & Music, I wanted to create a sonic blanket of calm and relaxation, inspired by the soft, soothing tones of the nylon strings found on classical guitars.”
