Need to relax?

Post by Ron2K »

I discovered this over the weekend.

Background info (i.e. what I blogged about):
Marconi Union is a British musical trio specialising in ambient music, and Weightless was produced in conjunction with the British Academy of Sound Therapy (back in October 2011) to be one of the most relaxing songs ever heard. With guitar, piano and electronic samples of “natural soundscapes”, one would kind of expect it to be somewhat relaxing… but, they were so successful (scientists measured a 65% reduction in anxiety and a 35% reduction in heart rate) that motorists have actually been warned not to listen to this while driving.

And yes, it works quite well on me too.

Not to burst your bubble but that is a black empty imagine. ...strangely it is relaxing.

So I thought it was Chrome being gay but apparently it seems to be all the links on this forums. The aircraft page is also on black out.

daily fail... :| <pinch of sodium chloride and then a bucket...>
The study - commissioned by bubble bath and shower gel firm Radox Spa - found the song was even more relaxing than a massage, walk or cup of tea.
oh, and a completely impartial punter of woo footing the bill... :lol:
