Sounds-on-sea is a special collection of samples taken from field recordings in the jolly seaside town of Hastings. As salty as a portion of chips, as dizzying as a Ferris Wheel, Sounds-on-sea is a nostalgic sonic souvenir that will transport you to of the headonistic world of the British seaside!


All the proceeds from this project go to charities and organisations helping to support refugees. This month we will be supporting the DEC Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal, which is helping to provide essential hygiene supplies and emergency food for Ukrainian refugees fleeing their country right now.


Your download comes as a zip file with 42 WAV files, including longer ambiences and shorter samples for you to use as you like in your music! Featuring a clunky, creaky funicular, the hubbub of an amusement arcade, the toot of a minature railway and many more rich (and kitsch!) sonic seaside delights. Listen to some samples from the collection in the video above!


All sounds were recorded by Lucie Treacher in April 2022.
