As Bob Dylan said it so well, "The Times They Are a Changin' '" ... War, pandemics, social media, the news... sometimes you just want to get a good night's sleep or even a 20 minute nap. We may have some music and video to help.
We've created a YouTube channel called "Sleep Relax Dream". We use excerpts of ambient music from Qua Continuum (a collaboration of myself and Brain composing music using electronics, nature sounds, ASMR while mixing these live to DSD) and carefully selected stationary videos of nature. More recently, we've brought our own cameras and tripods to the California Coast where we've shot scenes that bring you right to the ocean. Here's one I shot last month of a hiking trail I like to go to.
We called these stationary videos "Digital Windows"
We don't have drones flying over landscapes or multiple photos creating slideshows. We've created something that's more like turning your screen into a window that gives you a realistic feeling of being at that place in nature. Maybe it brings you a soothing memory of somewhere you've been. Right click and select "Loop" directly on the video. See how these Digital Windows bring you directly to that place in nature where a sense of calm lives.
Part of the joy is actually setting up a tripod to get a great shot and shooting for 60 seconds of one scene. Funny enough, this drives many pro film-makers crazy. Get a tripod and try it yourself! Send us your video. We'd love to see nature where you live. Send to firstname.lastname@example.org
It's easy enough to change the music, too....
Lower the volume or turn it off, then add your own streaming music background. Or download something in DSD. We'd like to suggest solo piano as a great way to relax. Try this album
