Best Ambient Music
Like with any genre of music, there’s plenty of choice so you can picky over what you choose.
The best ambient music for sleep are long albums where the tracks effortlessly blend into each other. This is so that the music doesn’t chop and change throughout the night but instead keeps the same pace between tracks.
Ideally the artist you choose should have more than one album so that you can choose to add to your collection in the future. I’ve found it’s best to stick with the same artist so that there won’t be any vast musical differences between tracks and albums. It all blends into one regardless of the order you play the tracks in.
The ultimate compliment to me is that people fall asleep to my music. This is functional music, it seeks to serve the purpose of assisting us to be tranquil, when that is not easy in today’s world. – Chuck Wild (Liquid Mind)
