Irv Teibel’s Environments series introduced the world to the therapeutic uses of natural sound.
Begun a year before Songs of the Humpback Whale became a symbol of the environmental movement and almost a decade ahead of Brian Eno’s sonic manifesto Ambient 1/Music For Airports, this series of twenty-two soundscapes permeated popular culture—from classic ocean and animal soundscapes to porto-new age (“Tintinnabulation (Contemplative Sound)”) and political sound art (“Be-In (A Psychoacoustic Experience)”). Teibel even developed a record specifically for making love (“Ultimate Heartbeat”).
Teibel's focus on curated natural sounds and his meticulous attention to state of the art audiophile recording techniques was in stark contrast to the low fidelity field recordings and sound effects/mood music records of the 1950s and 60s. His recordings sparked a global craze for new age and ambient nature-based recordings, which boomed in the 1970s and 80s and continues today in bedroom noise machines, yoga studios, and mindfulness apps.
