CALM is a gentle repose.

Soft and sweet classical music is the right combination for deep relaxation and stress reduction. Through the process of decreasing tempo and simplified harmonic complexities, the heart rate naturally slows and the mind unwinds. These easily-assimilated soundtracks create a gentle repose free from stress or anxiety.

On a scale of 1-4, with 1 being the slowest and least complex harmonic content, CALM is a 2. Tempos are slow and easy — within the range of the ideal relaxed heart rate. The “simple sound” music on these recordings has been selected and/or re-arranged to create stress-free listening. CALM is effective for deep relaxation, slowing down, preparing for sleep, or anytime where a soothing environment is desired.

Solo piano and trios (piano, cello, oboe/english horn) softly interpret the music of Vivaldi, Bach, Mozart, Corelli, Schumann, Schubert, Debussy, Satie, Rachmaninoff, Telemann, Chopin, Faure, Humperdinck, and Dvorak.

CALM’s serene soundtracks (2) are also ideal for:

  • Deep relaxation
  • Meditation
  • Treatment room ambience
  • Bodywork and yoga
  • Office work
  • Study and computer time

Tempos are a soothing 50-70 beats per minute.
