For me human voices are one of the biggest sources of distraction. I find it very difficult to read, write or do other tasks when I can hear people talking or when listening to music with lyrics. When Pete and I set out to create Little Symphony part of the inspiration was to create a reliable discography that was packed full of focus-inducing music. The ambient recorded sounds such as waves on Sombrio Beach, or the loons on Narrow Lake, mixed with warm ambient synth pad sounds provide a nice cover for other noises. These sounds are designed to slowly integrate into your subconscious, serving as a non-intrusive blanket to protect your ears from other stimulus.
The Ultimate Solution to Blocking Distractions
As a student who admittedly doesn’t devote much time to my studies, it is important than on the rare occasion I am studying I get a lot done. As mentioned before, external noises such as voices in the study halls or my roommates at home banging around in the kitchen can distract me easily. Luckily I schemed up a solution to the problem. I bought a set of reusable ear plugs and slip them on underneath my over ear headphones. Through the headphones I play Little Symphony music at a decently high volume. The result is a pleasant volume of music (since the earplugs block some of the music as well) with 0 outside noises. This technique has revolutionized the amount of productivity I can achieve and I would highly recommend giving it a try! Our Perfect Concentration playlist is the perfect playlist to try it with… It’s even in the name for Peter’s sake!
With this in mind, we hope that our Perfect Concentration playlist will serve you well with your work or studies. We wish nothing more for our ambient music and nature sounds to do the same for you that it does for us. If you are interested in our other top playlists, you can find more here.
