send in the drones iii

Jem Finer has created a piece of music designed to last 1,000 years. Longplayer consists of looping sections of Tibetan bowls ringing and droning on and on. This piece will play without repetition until December 31, 2999.

I listened to Longplayer last night for about thirty minutes and achieved maximum mellow-ocity (not a word but I like the sound of it) after just five minutes. The tones swirl constantly from speaker to speaker, creating the illusion of an underwater belltower. Take a break and absorb this music for a spell--your blood pressure will thank you.

I've had this on now at work for a couple of hours. It is strangely soothing.
