Symphonic Rest. Long tones. Sonic massage.
A thoughtful, futuristic album from Even Better Lark
Symphonic Rest is an album that guides you into a space to think, to listen, to feel. At times lighthearted, other times profound, this album intrigues the restless mind with its expansiveness and meticulous intricacies. Begins with so much space by way of long tones, ends with an avant garde track to get you up and moving.
Long tones are featured in almost all the songs in this album, so even if a track is upbeat and energetic, the long tones underneath can help your mind be still, slow your breathing, and reduce your heart rate. These physical effects lead to lower levels of stress hormones, and drop you out of sympathetic (fight or flight!) into the parasympathetic (Netflix & chill!) nervous system.
In short, listening to the Symphonic Rest album is like getting a sonic massage.
