Chances are you have came across some form of sleep music on Youtube, Spotify, or some other audio/video streaming platform. This type of music is often easily recognizable. Deep horn and synth sounds, ambient plucked instruments, bells, piano, etc. This kind of music is often formless and falls quickly and unobtrusively into the background of your mind.
Over the years sleep music has become more and more popular. This is simply because these ambient sounds act as a form of melodic white noise to ease your mind and blot out any sporadic sound such as traffic or voices.
Although this form of sleep music works best for many people, some prefer the rhythmic sounds such as ocean waves or the slightly unpredictable sounds like bird song. These sounds can give your brain something to focus on. The sounds of nature have also been linked with reduction of stress. However, the sounds of nature are significantly less ambient and lack the ability to wash away the harsh sounds that will otherwise make there way into your ear.
So knowing the strengths of both sleep music and nature sounds, it seems intuitive that mixing the two together would result in a powerful combination that is sure to have you sawing logs. If this was your thought process, you would most definitely be right. Little Symphony is passionate about creating music that mixes the sounds of nature and ambient sleep sounds. We have our full discography here. It features albums ranging from 16 minutes to 75 minutes. The albums were created by recording rain, waterfalls, birds, bugs, waves, lakes, and many more sounds.
Little Symphony also specializes in creating regularly curated playlists that feature albums of similar styles, or that produce a certain vibe for a specific purpose. We have playlists for work, sleep, meditation, and more.
