A crowd of people whispering the sounds of the tide

Ultimate relaxation

Two of the most relaxing sounds in the world are people whispering and shushing quietly, and the sound of the tide rushing in and out. If these two sounds were combined, it would be better than a sedative for putting you at ease.

If a group of people were recorded while softly imitating the tide (by going "shhhhh" at different volumes) it would be perfect for babies, or for a person like me who just can't go to sleep.

       I dunno, whispers just make me more attentive. But the end result of thousands of them might be pretty awesome. + Move to the sea?
