This pack explores sounds that can induce Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response, better known as ASMR. To achieve this, we recorded our ASMRtist, renowned NYC experimental cellist Vivian Ludford using everyday objects like scissors, candy, and aluminum foil to make sounds into a binaural head. In this pack, you’ll find sounds with the potential to incite spine-tingling goodness with whispers, crackling pop rocks, honing steel, fire, and fruit.
In a binaural recording setup, microphones are placed inside a dummy head and strategically positioned to mimic the listening position of a normal human eardrum. This way, it sounds like the samples are coming from inside your head. For many listeners, the cognitive dissonance that comes with hearing samples from inside your head can cause the tingly or dissociative feeling that we call ASMR.
