White noise / Ambience

White noise. Backgound noise. ASMR. Relaxation sounds. Focus music.

Whatever you want to call it, you’ll find thousands of people who will promise a life changing experience with their preferred selection. By all means, give it a try. But don’t expect results from the first one you find or whatever is highest rated on YouTube this week. This is the kind of thing that depends heavily on YOU. On how YOUR brain works. On how YOU experience the world.

To get anywhere with this you need to listen to your inner parent-at-the-buffet. “Don’t fill up on the first thing you see. Try a little bit of everything and then go back if you’re still hungry.”

What works for me?

SID tunes on repeat. Yep, music from the now rather limited, but revolutionary when released, SID chip in the Commodore 64.

Repetitive enough to sound like white noise, without being white noise.

No lyrics to get stuck in my head.

Endless selection.
