Irv Teibel - Environments FLAC album

Phonographer Chris DeLaurenti on the important "frames" of Irv Teibel's environments series.

The series consists of recordings of natural sounds such as a seashore with crashing waves or a thunderstorm with falling rain, without musical accompaniment.

Irv released environments 1 in September, 1969 and it sold incredibly well and was quickly picked up by Atlantic Records. Side B was recorded at the Bronx Zoo aviary. The soundscape was intended to improve alertness and make a room seem brighter and bigger but some early listeners said it gave them anxiety so Irv never considered it one of his most successful recordings.

Archival record label Numero Group have launched a new boutique lifestyle app. Environments creates ambient sound with nature recordings on long-form loops. It features 22 fully remastered analog recordings by field recordist Irv Teibel, who is best known for his influential Environments album series spanning from 1969 to 1979.

Irv Teibel’s esteemed series 'Environments' is now an application thanks to the diggers at Numero Group. It’s both a historical document and a salve for modern ills. Teibel himself pitched the series for its palliative qualities. As Jennifer Ballow, his daughter, told Motherboard last year, he quickly realized that recording had qualities that made him feel at ease.
