Sound Asleep includes Day Rest and Night Sleep.
Piano, String Quartet, Harp, nature sounds
30-50 beats per minute.
Sound Asleep is about as slow and gentle as music can get. This is a sonic cradle with a warm blanky... Starting at 50 beats per minute, these soundtracks slowly move down into the space of no identifiable tempo at all. In the process, the heart rate and breath are naturally entraining with the slowing rhythms into ever-deepening relaxation and peaceful sleep. Additionally, binaural beat frequencies -- composed by brainwave biofeedback expert Anna Wise -- help guide brainwaves through beta and alpha into the theta/delta brainwaves necessary for replenishment and renewal
Day Rest, designed for a 20- or 45-minute relaxation session or sleep, brings the listener back to beta at the conclusion of the soundtrack. Night Sleep, created for repeated playing through the night if desired, facilitates falling asleep and staying asleep. Sound Asleeps soundtracks are deliberate and quite leisurely. The two CDs, Day Rest and Night Sleep, are ideal for:
- Healing Environments
- Deep Relaxation
- Taking a Nap
- Falling Asleep
- Staying Asleep
Tempos are very, very slow: 30-50 beats per minute. Instrumentation on Sound Asleep includes piano, string quintet, harp, electronic keyboards, and sounds of nature. Re-arrangements of Chopin, Tchaikovski, Debussy, and Brahms provide sumptuous listening and optimum effect.
