1. The importance of sleep
Having difficulty falling asleep is a widespread problem in modern society. If we do not get enough sleep, we are nerveless, lethargic unable to manage stress and our body is more vulnerable to illness. So if sleep is so important, isn’t it annoying to lie down and wait impatiently for it to happen? What we need is something that catches our attention and distracts us from our daily concerns while at the same time simple and monotone enough to let us fall asleep.
2. Using the power of music
Imagine a romantic love scene without a heartbreaking piano melody; a spectecular car chase without an impulsive beat. Film composers use the power of music to influence our state of consciousness. So why not ask a film composer to compose the perfect soundtrack to help us fall asleep, tunes which lull us and make us go to sleep naturally?
The Science of Sleep
Scientists have intensively researched the effects of music therapy. Below you will find an list of articles about the impact of music to our body and mind.
3. Why 3-Phase Sleeping Music is different
Traditional mood and relaxation music is static and does not adapt to your body’s condition. While listen to it, you get more and more relaxed but the music remains in its initial intensity. It feels too loud or just too much and irritates your process of falling asleep. The special feature of the 3-Phase Sleeping Music is its dynamic development over time, that is complexity, tempo and amplitude. This assures the perfect fit between the mood of the music and your organism.
Phase I starts with the introduction of a nice dreamy melody. Your attention will be drawn to the music instead of your daily concerns. The tempo is adjusted to the average heartbeat frequency of a human being. After about 8 minutes the chords progression simplifies and the melody is played less frequently and complex. The tempo slows down a little bit - this is the transition to Phase II.
In Phase II the music’s harmony only exists of two different chords which iterate permanently. There is only one simple rhythmical percussion element whose tempo is adjusted to the relaxed condition of your organism. The melody is simple and repetitive and your brain will know subconsciously exactly which note will follow. The melody fades out slowly and the rhythm element slows down and fades out.
In Phase III nothing should disturb your progressing sleepiness. So here we only have the main harmony played by a soft pad sound and a dreamy atmospheric sound in the background. There are no melodic or percussive elements. The pad and atmospheric sounds fade out slowly after a while. It is important that this fade out is very slow and constant because a short fade out or a change in the music would draw your attention back to the music and this could wake you up again. Your awareness is now loped off the outside world and focused on your inside.
A small step for you, but a big step for the quality of your life.
