"Nightdreams"

Instruments: Drums, Hang Drum

Feel: Calming, Grooving, Mystical

Are you still spending all of your money on shakra therapies that don't seem to work? Look no further - Nightdreams will do everything those therapies do and at a much lower cost! Presence is the truth of well-being. And no one can argue that to be well, one must first exist. Before you start listening to this piece, make certain that you exist. No one needs another one of those 'tree-falling paradoxes' messing up their lives... or their forests.

This piece has 54 beats each minute. At Angkor Wat, a Hindu temple carving has 54 gods in opposition to 54 demons, and in their struggle they create immortality. Mystics (or mathematicians... whatever) in Ancient Greece knew of the prime factorization of this mystic number. 3 by 3 by 3 by 2. What does this all mean? Not much, as it turns out the concept of a "minute" wasn't familiar to the architects at Angkor Wat.

We reflect, we dream, we are born. We gather together, we smile, we eat potato salads. We remember, we invent, muddle mint for our mojitos. We greet, we listen, we appreciate NetFlix. We collect coins and stamps... for some reason. We mix up the names of our children with the names of our pets. We x-ray baggage... with X-RAYS! Those things are like 200keV! Each! Do you know what that does to people!? Hint: Not good things.

There are 54 beads on a Buddhist prayer mala. These are used for counting recitations and chants. There are 54 beats per minute in this song. Coincidence? Sure is. What, you're going through an entire mala cycle in a minute? That's crazy talk! Studies have shown the optimal number of mantras in a single set is somewhere between 15 and 20 anyway... so don't waste your money on the 54 or 108 bead versions. You'll be a lot better doing more sets of less reps. And don't forget leg day.

Life is the source of mystical potential. Or it isn't. One of the two. If I had to bet... I would probably ask what those words mean. Even 'life' isn't simple. I don't think I could recognize what the first living thing was. It is like making a soup. Hot water? Not soup. Hot water with salt? Not soup. Add a potato? Still not soup. That's just a potato in hot salt water. At some point it becomes soup. Same with life. Bonus fact: Borscht was never soup. It is borscht.

New age music. You know what is cool about New Age music? Low ambitions. It wants to do a simple thing, and then does it. No crazy counterpoint. No complicated harmonic structures. Just a simple simple thing. Like if Tetris was all those long blocks. Man, that would be great.

Feel: Relaxed, Bright, Calming

A different kind of relaxing piece with long but detailed harmonic complexity. I personally have a hard time with the drone-type of relaxing music. It doesn't work for me. This one gives your mind something to think about... very very slowly.

Ok, I might be crying a little bit. But it is understandable... I went to a party store, and I saw all the colorful balloons with happy sayings on them like "Get Well" and "Feel Better" and "A Hug for You"... I just started thinking how the helium will all be gone one day. Just gone... we won't get it back, and it took millions of years of radioactive decay to get the helium we have now... and... *sniff* we just don't have millions more years to wait for more. They're wasting helium in balloons... how can I possibly "Feel Better"!?

Is it a real Gregorian Chant? Nope. For one - there are no real words in it. Honestly, I don't want a religious exaltation mucking up my fantasy world. So if you're building a historically accurate "Monk Simulator: Year of Our Lord 882!", just move on. The other reason this isn't real is I never learned how to read that notation. There are insufficient sticks for the rhythms in the notation... I know, there is a real convention that you can learn. I just grabbed a few pieces of the sheet music from the 1200s, and guessed at how to do it. Sounds reasonable enough to me! (says the guy who knows virtually nothing about the art)

Feel: Mystical, Dark, Mysterious

Remember that time you were lost in the woods and you were visited by the clan of centaurs, and they were super suspicious of you, but decided to take you back to their settlement anyway? It never happened! That was a screen memory! There are no centaurs, and they wouldn't live in forest settlements! That was an alien abduction. The aliens planted the memory of the forest centaurs so your brain wouldn't implode with the knowledge of trans-dimensional beings... such as themselves. And... unrelated, but... what comes to mind when you think about the smell of wet cardboard and Sriracha?

Minimal and somewhat droney in parts, this has a beautiful calmness about it. You can use it to sell anti-depressants or high performance automobile parts. Also useful for time-lapse photography of the night sky... or maybe a rocket launch. You can download this in uncompressed format here. Download comes with individual tracks so you can make your own mixes.
