Ten hours of Weightless

Wednesday, 16 November, 2016

The most relaxing song in the world is Weightless by ambient band Marconi Union from Manchester. Who says? Dr David Lewis-Hodgson, chairman of Mindlab International, says. The band produced the song in collaboration with the British Academy of Sound Therapy and, according to Dr Lewis-Hodgson:

“The song makes use of many musical principles that have been shown to individually have a calming effect. By combining these elements in the way Marconi Union have has created the perfect relaxing song. It contains a sustaining rhythm that starts at 60 beats per minute and gradually slows to around 50. While listening, your heart rate gradually comes to match that beat.”

For those suffering from extreme stress and pressure, here is the ten-hour version.
