    Sleepy drone music?

    Does anyone know any good drone music to sleep to?
    It can have beats, too, as long as it's suitable for sleeping. I like Biosphere a lot, especially the Substrata albums.
    I can sleep easily listening to those.
    Any suggestions? :)

  • Try some tracks of Hyperborea it always works for us ;-)

    Other sugestions: Brian Eno and Harold Budd

    Have a goodnight sleep!

    Pentamerous Metamorphosis

    They have beats, but the melodies themselves are really soothing. I've found them perfect for relaxing.

    Some Pete Namlook's works might also be good, but I'm not that familiar with them myself yet. "Pete Namlook & Geir Jenssen - The Fires of Ork" two part collaboration is good, but it goes uptempo and "menacing" at times, so don't know if it's really good for sleeping.

    Have to agree on the Harold Bud and Brian Eno, especially Eno's 'Music for Airports'. Try also some Steve Roach (he has dark ambient, might give you nightmares), some of Boards of Canada is suitable for sleeping. Look in my played tracks, I constanly stream only sleep music (it drives the wife crazy!). Some more: Vidna Obmana, Stars of the Lid, John Foxx, Liquid Mind, the list goes on.

    turn on, tune in, sleep...
  • I know acouple of good ones for that, too.
    Charm (Over Burundi Cloud)
    Waiting for Cousteau
    To the Threshold of Silence
    and many other.
    But what always knocks me out best is the sound of the B17 bombers in the game B17 The mighty 8th...
    I know, sounds stupid... but its a drone sound in the words very meaning - 3 dozen airplane engines making a deep roar with a slow oscilation in it. I liked to sit in the (glass) nose and watch the landscape move by, but after 10 mins I just couldn´t keep my eyes open anymore. :D

    Robert Rich's Somnium must definitely be mentioned in this context:

    Possibly the longest continuous musical composition ever released on any format, Somnium represents an ambient music landmark. Robert Rich has meticulously crafted a fresh studio interpretation of his notorious all-night Sleep Concerts, incorporating newly recorded electro-acoustic, electronic and environmental textures, with elements created for the original live events. Somnium guides the listener through an ever-changing dreamscape, with levels of subtle detail that reward both active attention and background listening. Deep and sonorous, mysterious and diffuse, liquid and hypnogogic.

    Standard DVD-video format, playable in all DVD players.
    7 hours of nocturnal ambience from the inventor of Sleep Concerts.

    Oh, and I sometimes listen to netradios named Sleepbot and SomaFM: Drone Zone while sleeping. Sleepbot is dedicated to "sleeping music" and has more experimental material, while Drone Zone has more of actual drone ambient.

  • Cold Summer.
    it's very dark, but great for sleep. Substrata also, of course. i like polish dark ambient project "EA". there is many more...:)

  • Try Stars of the lid it really good for sleeping . i always use it

    Global Communication - 76:14
    Beef Terminal - Crosscheck and Departure
    Brian Eno - Apollo: Atmospheres and Soundtracks

  • Stars of the Lid - you can't go wrong with much, but their first, "Music for Nitrous Oxide" is great, as is their later, as people have mentioned, "Tired Sounds..."

    The DVD w/soundtrack for Adam's from SotL side project "The Dead Texan" is good.

    Of course, Robert Rich's music DVD (note: no video, just music) is almost 7 hours of great sleeping music.

    Austere (, sold through Hypnos [url=(]( have two releases meant for sleeping and meditation, the first called "Convergence", the second "Eco", and reviews of both almost always call them "Sleep Music" and mention they're good to sleep to. I definitely love the first, and the second is also pretty good for sleeping.

    Cheers, Wink

    I wrote a journal entry a while back about music to sleep by, and got lots of good suggestions. Hopefully that will help. (Even though I'm replying to this way late)

    Sigur Ros does nicely, especially the () album.

    Aube HAS to be the most ambient artist ever, and that will put you to sleep...any time any place.

    listen to the noise i make and leave me a comment about it.
