Welcome to my first step in producing sounds in the direction of sleep music. Maybe not yet perfect as sleep music, but definitely relaxing music, and everyone has to decide for themselves whether they use the music for quiet hours or as sleep music.
There are drone-like sounds on this album, on which I use delays and reverbs.
This recording lasts 6 1/2 hours and is a work for more soothing ambient music, which I would like to develop and produce for myself.
All sounds were recorded live and direct via an Ableton DAW and a Zoom R16 recorder in our living room (thanks so much to my lovely wife Lynda for her patience and support)..
All tracks are very slow and low. You should not listen to the music at high volume.
I have named the individual tracks after bodies of water, lakes and seas. It is my personal experience to look at water and to feel the relaxing effect.
I was able to look into at least 3 of the mentioned waters and I was fascinated by the peace and relaxation that surrounded me.

Sounds, drones constructed by Volker Lankow.

Since BC allows to upload not more than 600 MB per track, I could not upload the full 6 1/2 hours in one track.

Thanks to Matt Hardy for the Cover Photo.

Listen to the music with low volume. Have a quiet and relaxing time and/or a good sleep
