Your Best Music for Sleep – Steven Halpern – CD
23.00€ (18.55€alv 0%)
If you’re one of the 65 million Americans who have a chronic sleep deficiency, this album may be the answer to your prayers. Based on a revolutionary approach to mind-body medicine that orchestrates your innate ‘relaxation response,’ the key to this music is what you hear– and what you don’t hear– familiar melodies that engage the mind and subconsciously keep you awake. Restful music only-NO subliminals or brainwave entrainment.
The beautiful, atmospheric compositions feature the soothing tones of the Rhodes electric piano and other keyboards that automatically relax the body and quiet the mind. Within moments, you can feel yourself breathing slower and deeper, as you drift off to sleep at the speed of sound.
For over 37 years, Steven Halpern has set the standard of excellence in the field of functional sound healing. This album is not intended as entertainment. Play it softly in your bedroom, and you’re unlikely to hear the end of the recording. We wish you sweet dreams.

Why Most Music Keeps You Up at Night
Most music is composed to entertain and stimulate the emotions. That’s great during the day, but at night, it’s like drinking three cups of coffee. I call this ‘audio caffeine’.
Surprisingly, biofeedback research has proven that what most people assume to be ‘soothing music’ is not as physiologically effective at reducing stress as they think. In fact, hidden stressors in most music may actually contribute to your inability to fall asleep.
Your brain and body are typically hooked into an unrecognized stress response by unconsciously analyzing the melodic and harmonic patterns built into the music itself. It’s natural to try to anticipate where the music is going in the future.
The problem is that ‘relaxation only happens in the present, not the future’. When the goal is relaxation and sleep, a more effective choice would be music that makes it easy to be at peace in the present moment. And this is what my music does.
Halpern played trumpet and guitar in the New York City jazz scene of the 1960s, but became disenchanted with it and moved to California. There he began exploring the idea of creating music entirely for the purpose of relaxation, which he called “anti-frantic alternative” music. He began creating music which did not adhere to traditional Western tonality, but which instead consisted of static, minimalist pieces for electric piano inspired by Eastern music. He is a proponent of theories which emphasize the healing properties of music.
Since his first record of new age music was released in 1975, he has recorded more than 50 albums. The most commercially successful of these was 2000’s Deja-Blues, which reached #18 on the U.S. Billboard Top New Age Albums chart. He is also the author of two books, Tuning the Human Instrument and Sound Health.
Halpern was also an inaugural member of the Independent Music Awards’ judging panel to support independent artists.
