Finding a moment of peace
I’ve been having a bit of a digital tidy-up while staying at home and trying to stay the hell away from mother nature’s wrath. And I’ve found a load of relaxing films I made many moons ago.
This one is a short film I made while wandering along the pebble beach at Jennycliff Bay in Plymouth. The video quality is a bit crap but it’s still quite calming to watch and listen to, and it also helped take my mind off this bloody pandemic for a few minutes.
If current events are getting to you too, press play and take some time out.
When I checked the film, to make sure I hadn’t recorded any unwanted sights or sounds, I noticed that the sound of the pebbles crunching under my feet and the waves gently sizzling ashore triggered my autonomous sensory meridian response (ASMR).
ASMR is a pleasant tingling sensation that is provoked by certain sights and sounds, and is usually felt running over the scalp or on the back of the neck. If you are also one of the lucky few who experience this wonderful feeling, I hope it triggers your ASMR too.
