This article has been written to illustrate how to optimise a page for a particular key phrase. Also, it’s a great song to write to, as I wrote this and the other article while listening to the most relaxing song ever created
The world today is full of noise and distractions that will never cease to throw your concentration off, whatever you’re trying to concentrate on, weather that be study, a blog post, or a report for work. Focusing on one task for an extended period can be very hard for a lot of people, in a 2013 study by Arielle S. Dolegui, of the impact of listening to music on cognitive performance, he found that “This technique has shown that background music promotes cognitive performance”
However, this and other studies have found that the style and genre of the music will greatly affect the quality and length of time that a person can focus for.
The Most Relaxing Music Ever
Richard Talbot of the electronic group Marconi Union, had heard of this study and decided to work with some therapists to create the most relaxing and focus inducing song ever.
He worked with the British Academy of Sound Therapy to create an 8 min long blend of slow rhythms, chimes, soft keyboards and natural sounds. This song has been touted as “the Most Relaxing Music Ever” and has even had studies done to prove that fact.
In 2011, scientists from the institute, in a commissioned study from the company Radox, tested almost 50 women, letting them listen to the song and then using tools to measure their heart rate and brain waves, they found, that the 60BPM beat encouraged the listeners hear to match the pace, its tones fell within the key of D which, have been found to correspond to a frequency that induces brain waves of relaxation.
These brain waves and hear rate synchronization have been given an name called, “Entratainment” and have a scientific mix of bass, and counterpoint tones that will relax a listener within minutes.
This particular song, called “weightless” has been said to be more relaxing than a massage, a walk or even a nice hot cup of tea, and because of such, people are advices to not listen to this song whilst in control of a vehicle.
In a statement from the study scientist and Lyz Copper says:
While listening, your heart rate gradually comes to match that beat. It is important that the song is eight minutes long because it takes about five minutes for this process, known as entrainment, to occur. The fall in heart rate also leads to a fall in blood pressure.
The harmonic intervals – or gaps between notes – have been chosen to create a feeling of euphoria and comfort. And there is no repeating melody, which allows your brain to completely switch off because you are no longer trying to predict what is coming next.
Instead, there are random chimes, which helps to induce a deeper sense of relaxation. The final element is the low, whooshing sounds and hums that are like buddhist chants. High tones stimulate but these low tones put you in a trance-like state.
Why Does Music Relax A Person?
For hundreds of years music has been used in different fashions to elevate or elevate many issues that a human or animal faces, stress, happiness, sadness, fear and so on. Positive reactions to music has been shown in animals and it’s quite well known that a number of animals “sing” when happy or to others in times of stressful situations.
The current theory is that certain types of music can trigger the release of brain chemicals such as dopamine when listened to, and that music that has a counterpoint in the key of D, and that is 60 Beats Per Minute is more like to be relaxing that faster and more discordant music.
Music has long been used in therapeutic situations, and in some cases, has been claimed to alleviate some pain after certain types of surgeries.
Lastly, In a number of studies undertaken from children, it’s has been found that children that study music and/or are exposed to music a great deal in their early years are more likely to be more receptive to learning at a greater pace. It’s also been found that background music is not only relaxing but will aid in memory and fact recall up to 4 times as long that study taken without music.
Children that receive music education from a young age have been found to have more language and fact recall abilities that children that do not and it’s been found that adults that discontinue music study, in their teens, yet continue to listen to music retail the recall and focus abilities well into their adult years.
So while this song is nice, and it did help me focus on the writing of this and other articles, is it the “The Most Relaxing Music Ever”?
I’ll let you be the judge of that.
