If I could program my Marpac Dohm to play some of my own sounds, this is what I’d use – a one minute segment that I’d either loop or “almost loop”.
I’ll be making a much longer version of this for my ambient music podcast at ambient.libsyn.com/ – it’ll probably be done by September 15th, 2018.
The Assignment: Make very quiet music for very late at night for very fragile psyches.
Step 1: It’s the middle of the night, long past dusk and long before dawn. You can’t sleep.
Step 2: Think about what kind of music you’d want to hear right now — super quiet, super subtle, unlikely to wake you, potentially to ease you back to the comfort of your pillow, or at least to calm your mind.
Step 3: Record the sort of music that Step 2 made you imagine.
