||And so to sleep
download ORDER FORM
One continuous track of 40 minutes of gentle lullabies to lull you into restful sleep.
Produced as a single track, the whole CD is underlaid with the pulse of a gentle heartbeat. The base track (a music box) is recorded in two 18-minute sections, beginning quietly and then introducing the strings, pipe and seashore waves early on while you are still aroused. After a little while the texture slowly fades to take you down to a more restful state and induce sleep.
Halfway through, the CD fades to just the heartbeat but for those who are still awake, there is a second chance! The CD gently rises again, strings and pipe returning to capture your attention, mask out your thoughts and once more attempt to take you down to a deeper sleep phase. Finally the music box is overlaid with a chiming clock and the whole soundscape is replaced with a heartbeat slowly fading into silence.
AND SO TO SLEEP . . and may you never hear the chiming clock!
