I would have thought that Enya, Cusco, 2002, et al. would have been more soothing. Maybe the Neuro-song doesn't work on people without anxiety....

I made the analogy of a human brain on music to a computer cpu.

A cpu has a timed cycle of data IN and OUT, locked to a master clock. It's almost like music in the brain helps reset that clock....IN...OUT to the same effect.

The "Weightless" music works incredibly well.
Actually had a stressful day, and saw this thread. Thanks!

I'm afraid the op's track didn't do anything for me. Not that I thought it was horrible but it really didn't affect me much.

This is the kind of music that really moves me and relaxes me at the same time.

The first time I saw this short clip from Ferris Bueller's day off just like Cameron was entranced by the painting in the scene I was entranced by the whole thing. The track is an instrumental by the dream academy of their cover of the smith's song, Please please please.

It's not the whole track in the movie but most of it.



This is the whole track.



Here is the original with singing and video of the band playing instruments.



For a long time I thought that the instrumental was traditional classical music. I'm not musically talented so I didn't realize that part of it was electronic.

Just before the election I came across this stretched out copy from a channel called 800%SlowerScores that uses special software to stretch out audio tracks. I was once again entranced. This is the kind of music you listen to when you see the full moon rise. It makes me feel like I'm awe struck inside a gigantic cave. It also feels spiritual thinking of the here after/eternity. I played this after Trump's victory and it was basically victory to me. It was significant considering how tight a victory it was, that he had pulled off the impossible when you think of all the negative polls and that he did not win the popular vote. But then again how much did the other side cheat? God only knows. Either way it's victory music. I went to bed with this track in my head. I was afraid that I wouldn't get much sleep with all the excitement of winning but I got enough.



Be sure to check out 800%SlowerScores other tracks. They have a few other movie scores. They may have one of your favourites.

This was another one that I really liked.



Stretching music makes it rather haunting. Some of it's too scary with voices but others are haunting in relaxing way.

This is how it looks in the address bar.
https: //www.youtube.com/watch?v=IkyRYxKjK44

Only copy what comes after the equal sign.

Click on the YouTube icon over the dialogue input box. (The area where you type in your message.)

A YouTube pop-up will be displayed. Click okay. A text box will open. Erase the word text, or just paste the partial url you copied, over the highlighted word text in the box, and that should be all you would have to do.

Check your post in preview and it should play. This will work for most YouTube urls, some have some extra info in the url and you will have to remove all the extra stuff, but that doesn't happen that often.



Nature videos help me relax and will put me to sleep.

Cheers! I'll try to organize it later when I have time.

Love the rain and thunder sounds! We have fairly wimpy storms here in New Zealand. I miss the thunderstorms in Michigan!

So it seems pretty subjective some saying they hate it and some saying they find it relaxing.

I guess I am biased since I like ambient already.

I guess it would be hard to find a universally relaxing piece of music because you know

different strokes for different folks.

Affirming what we already knew; music is a mood changer. I like this article and saved the song link on my bookmarks.

As beings that are made up from large amounts of water, maybe we are very responsive to changes in sounds and frequencies.


BP Earth has an interesting take on Schuman's Resonance.

This one works for me well. But I can see how it may have an opposite affect on some people.

Too dull for me, I found it boring. To my credit, I stuck it out for 3 minutes before I had enough.

IMO, Enigma & Enya produce the most relaxing music out there. Enya's The Humming in particular I find knocks it out of the ballpark.




And because I'm an oddball, I also personally consider a lot of Audiomachine's music relaxing. Not the stuff actually categorized as relaxing/uplifting & running on the slower side, but the fast-paced stuff categorized as powerful/epic, like Epica, Eshara, Slipstream, etc. The thing is, depending on my mood, Audiomachine can be relaxing or motivating, it's like double duty/multipurpose music for me.

I would nominate Chopin's nocturnes for this purpose. Even without knowing the individual pieces intimately, the music is dark, beautiful and relaxing. But it's not empty music. The real magic comes after getting to know the pieces individually over time. At that point, it can become an escape of sorts. These are a couple samples played by Rubinstein:

*laughs* That is my household!

Well, I dunno OP. That song didn't do a thing for me.

Music that relaxes me is Enya and Clannad. Oh, and I love me some Stevie Nicks as well.

Oh! But that thunderstorm vid posted above...? I adore that for relaxing! One of my most favorite things about growing up in the stormy southwest, also known as New Mexico, was nighttime thunderstorms and the sounds and smells of rain falling while I'm trying to fall asleep.

I know. I find it interesting the hypnotic effect that thunderstorms have on our psyche.

A while back we got hit with some super electrical storms. I was awakened around 2 am, by the tornado warning sent to my cell phone. It most be on all phones because I don't have a weather app, and I have all notifications turned off, but I got the alarm and warning.

I got up and turned on the TV to see what was going on. There was a weather reporter with a map that showed my house, my brother's house, and my sister-in-law's father's house, were right smack dab in the middle of the expected path of the tornado. I called and woke up my sister-in-law and told her to be prepared if the roof blew off. I woke my mother so we could make a quick exit to shelter if necessary, and we sat in the dark to watch the storm. You can see better what the heck is going on outside, with the lights off, when you live In the woods .

The storm put on a magnificent display but it could not hold our attention. Even with struggling to stay awake, we all drifted back off to sleep. I got two more alarms, but twice more the storms put me to sleep. Of course, if a tornado had actually been pressing down on us, the vibe would have been a lot different, but thank God it didn't.

We still talk about how none of us could stay awake through that storm, even though we tried, and our anxiety and stress levels were through the roof. Thunderstorms really do have a tranquilizing and hypnotic effect on some. Me included.
