How We Select MusicUpdated a year ago

We choose music for the Dreampad App based on certain characteristics, which include tempo, key signature, instrumentation and frequency range.  While many genres can be suitable for relaxation and sleep, we find the most effective to be classical and what is often called "ambient."

We also recommend music that is relatively a-melodic, as the brain tends to engage in a melody. While a certain melody may be relaxing, it may not be ideal for falling asleep. Slow tempo is preferred, maybe around 60 beats per minute.  Low frequency music, such as cello music, helps relax the nervous system and also sounds great with the Dreampad and Aurras.
