this is one for the heads...

so guys, ive been doing this as a relaxation technique at work, having this playing through one of my headphones throughout the day.

open: www.rainymood.com
and then open: http://www.earslap.com/projectslab/circuli - and click a few random times inside the box... (or read the instructions)

^ have both of these going at once, on your home stereo, headphones or whatever; circuli in particular is blowing my mind right now.. wish there was a way to record it into my music somehow...

hope you guys enjoy this!! it chills me the feck out. :)
just thought a few people might relish the opportunity to meditate on this.

That's really nice... and very clever.

And if you overload your BB connection (by opening a picture-heavy site) you can get some glitchy stuff too!

I like rain, streams, becks, waterfalls or any other white noise-y type sounds as they tend to mask intrusive noises, envelop you and help you either concentrate or relax (a pedestal fan helps me sleep on hot summer nights when the windows are open and the wildlife won't; it's the noise masking as well as the cooling).

Not sure how much of the blippy, bubble stuff I could take, but it certainly gives you something to attach your mind to if you want to stop thinking for a while and clear your clutter out :)

If you like this, perhaps you should get a recorder and a good waterproof mic and go and record some similar noises -rain, thunder, wind-noise, bubbling becks and streams, waterfalls, crashing waves, dragging shingle, swaying trees, wheat and barley fields, creaking boats or windmill sails, etc.

You could then layer them with birdsong or animal calls, other natural or fauna noises, wind chimes, perhaps some nostalgia stuff (for me gulls in Whitby), and then some really gentle or etherial synth pads. Bung 'em in all random, or gate the bubble app and generate MIDI from it to trigger stuff -I'm sure there are random MIDI generator plugs out there somewhere.

Laquer it all with etherial reverb stuff from Valhalla Rooms and Shimmer, don't lose your sense of balance.

Get someone to check on you every few days to make sure you're eating, drinking, still breathing ;)
