Adrift Volume 2 is a deeply relaxing composition that provides a sense of comfort and serenity in a very understated way. It is a soft musical journey of slow, flowing harmonies that give it a floating, dreamy atmosphere.
It is wonderful background music for formal meditation or for when you're ready to drift off to sleep. You can also listen to this music anytime you want to lower your stress levels and feel more at ease.
In the words of one reviewer...
“It's like hitting the reset button on your day. One minute you’re lying there wondering if you remembered to turn off the iron this morning... and a moment later you realize that half an hour has passed by and your whole body feels like it’s floating."
Our Suggestion - listen at a quiet volume with your eyes closed and notice how it makes you feel.
Comments on the accompanying track, "Adrift Volume 2 - The Awakening".
This track uses the same soft background sounds as the main music of Adrift Volume 2, but it brings a new set of instruments to the foreground. You'll hear a lovely, rich sounding piano as well as flutes and tuned bells. The awakening track is quite a tranquil tune in its own right, but has much more momentum and brightness than the main music. It's also more emotive and will certainly help to bring you gently back into the world with a smile on your face and in your heart.
In order to give the music that floating, dreamy sound, I often blend unusual combinations of tones together so as to augment those soft flowing harmonies with a layer of ethereal harmonics. These harmonics aren’t the focal point of the music, they just sort of wash over you like passing clouds – auroras of indistinct shapes and blurred lights. They lend a carefree, faraway atmosphere to the music that soothes the nervous system and encourages the mind to defocus.
With the idea of "defocussing" in mind, I should point out that this music is best suited to situations in which deep relaxation and/or hypnotic states of consciousness are the goal. Adrift Volume 2 is designed to help dissolve analytical thinking processes while opening the mind to dreaming, hypnotic states and subconscious exploration. This music is all about zzzzzzz...
