"Nightdreams"

Instruments: Drums, Hang Drum

Feel: Calming, Grooving, Mystical

Are you still spending all of your money on shakra therapies that don't seem to work? Look no further - Nightdreams will do everything those therapies do and at a much lower cost! Presence is the truth of well-being. And no one can argue that to be well, one must first exist. Before you start listening to this piece, make certain that you exist. No one needs another one of those 'tree-falling paradoxes' messing up their lives... or their forests.

This piece has 54 beats each minute. At Angkor Wat, a Hindu temple carving has 54 gods in opposition to 54 demons, and in their struggle they create immortality. Mystics (or mathematicians... whatever) in Ancient Greece knew of the prime factorization of this mystic number. 3 by 3 by 3 by 2. What does this all mean? Not much, as it turns out the concept of a "minute" wasn't familiar to the architects at Angkor Wat.

We reflect, we dream, we are born. We gather together, we smile, we eat potato salads. We remember, we invent, muddle mint for our mojitos. We greet, we listen, we appreciate NetFlix. We collect coins and stamps... for some reason. We mix up the names of our children with the names of our pets. We x-ray baggage... with X-RAYS! Those things are like 200keV! Each! Do you know what that does to people!? Hint: Not good things.

There are 54 beads on a Buddhist prayer mala. These are used for counting recitations and chants. There are 54 beats per minute in this song. Coincidence? Sure is. What, you're going through an entire mala cycle in a minute? That's crazy talk! Studies have shown the optimal number of mantras in a single set is somewhere between 15 and 20 anyway... so don't waste your money on the 54 or 108 bead versions. You'll be a lot better doing more sets of less reps. And don't forget leg day.

Life is the source of mystical potential. Or it isn't. One of the two. If I had to bet... I would probably ask what those words mean. Even 'life' isn't simple. I don't think I could recognize what the first living thing was. It is like making a soup. Hot water? Not soup. Hot water with salt? Not soup. Add a potato? Still not soup. That's just a potato in hot salt water. At some point it becomes soup. Same with life. Bonus fact: Borscht was never soup. It is borscht.

New age music. You know what is cool about New Age music? Low ambitions. It wants to do a simple thing, and then does it. No crazy counterpoint. No complicated harmonic structures. Just a simple simple thing. Like if Tetris was all those long blocks. Man, that would be great.

Did you know that people in the 1800s used to make tea out of mummies they dug up in Egypt? Tea. Like the kind you drink. That is because people in the 1800s were dumb. They were so stupid, they thought seaweed was really quite interesting. Today, you would have to be a marine botanist to think seaweed is that exciting. I don't need to mention how "exciting" marine botanists are... Carl! Finding some Caulerpa 20 kilometers outside its published range is no reason to write a paper! And it is certainly no reason to be LATE for your OWN PARTY, CARL!!!

Oh geez, there's lots of notes in this one. The end of this piece is just woodwinds by themselves, and they are super cool. So often the percussion just takes over these pieces, even though there are some beautiful parts that get attention directed away from them.

So many big drums! All the big drums in all one place! Bonus; Extra people banging on gamelan metals! Uncompressed download comes with a version with just the drums... I'm not sure if this of for non-musicologists who may not like the gamelan - or specifically for musicologists who think I've used the gamelan improperly.

Feel: Relaxed, Calming, Mystical

We've all been there... wandering through an impenetrable forest, half dead with 2 arrows sticking out of your leg. And yet we continue - because it is probably good for the narrative. Then hope! Oh thank the old gods and the new!! An unmapped settlement of woodland inhabitants takes you in and brings you back from the brink of certain death. You don't even care that it is a scurry of giant squirrels that came to the rescue, or that the healing soup they give you is largely acorn-based, and vomit-inducing. Pastoral and beautiful. The download comes with a loop for if you never want the feeling to end.
