A track which has been scientifically proven to be more relaxing than a massage. Radox. Marconi Union.
So, we’ve produced a 7 minute track called , which features a sort of range of instrumentation, some of it traditional. So, piano, guitars, this bed of sounds, some more synthetic sounds. It’s all quite at the same time. I think sometimes I’m doing music you get into that kind of just that moment where you lose of everything. It’s absolutely a very powerful experience. That was what was quite interesting about this project. It’s about adding that sort of scientific sort of side to it to commit responses to music in terms of a tempo being able to drop someone’s heart rate. We’re really interested to see the end results because that’s one of the reasons we got involved in the project, the testing of something that it’s difficult to improve the tests and we want to see how that works.
My name’s Duncan Smith, Managing Director of Mindlab international, with the Sussex Innovation Centre where we’ve been taking in a test to see the effects of music on the brain. We wanted to know this track was actually a very relaxing track. So, we tested this track against other relaxing tracks that actually put it in context to the claim that it actually works to relax people. We started off with a huge number of tracks that people thought were relaxing. We used to bring it down to a small group of 15 and then we tested all of these in the lab against the Radox Spa. The second part of the experiment we actually took the Radox Spa track and we actually used that to compare it to massage to actually see you know what is the most relaxing, a massage or listening to a very relaxing track. And what we did is we used something called where we connected all our participants to a whole range of different wires and sensors to actually feedback from their bodies exactly how relaxed they were.
I’m Lyz Cooper. I’m researcher and developer of different techniques that use sound to help improve health and well-. Well, it was very interesting working with “Marconi Union”, obviously very experienced musicians in the ambient music field and so what I was able to do was to add in some therapeutic elements, therapeutic sound, into their music and give them some on what I would do as a sound developer and practitioner and they wove it all together into a lovely piece and the sound works from the point of view of sustained . We help a person to feel safe. So, it’s very random and sounds that go through the piece and what that does is that it actually the person, the listener, to get out of the way and just really relax at a very deep level.
(Participant) I’ve just come out of the test and I feel really relaxed.
So, the first thing we found which is really interesting is that this truly is a relaxing track. And the second, and probably more surprising finding that we found, was that not just is the music relaxing, but compared to a massage, even though people absolutely loved the massage, really really enjoyed it, it wasn’t actually as relaxing as listening to the Radox Spa track. So, if you want to relax, it could be on the , on the train on the way home, sitting in the bath, if you‘ve got a few minutes to spend on yourself, give yourself a little time and listen to the track , ‘cause it will still have the effects that you want.
