Hey thanks for all the suggestions guys, I will definitely check them all out! Sorry I haven’t replied before, my Internets been down for most of the week, sad times haha :)
I really enjoy some post-rock when I’m trying to zone out. Anything without words is good, I tend to think about the lyrics too much if they’re present. My favorite would be explosions in the sky and sigur ros. I know Sigur Ros isn’t post rock but I have no clue what they’re saying so it’s the same concept
If your looking for something flute like you might want to try some of the Japanese zen music. They use the bamboo flute known as the shakuhachi
A you tube search for shakuhachi music gives some good results.
A good album I can recommend is by Stan Richardson… It’s called Shakuhachi Meditation Music.
Also, I have a couple of albums on the market specially composed for meditation. If you are interested just do a search on my name.
Hope this helps.
A while ago I decided to pretend everyday noises were meditation music and listen accordingly. Not all sounds transformed into this purpose without a struggle, but persisting in this exercise began making fun (out) of background annoyances I couldn’t avoid easily or immediately when my purpose brought me within earshot.
Now, usually I do hear ordinary life vibes newly when I shift my attention and pretend. So I more often find myself attending these potentially distracting urban life waves eagerly, like I would a high quality nature sounds recording. But I might also receive complex, chaotic songs from playing this game, more stimulating than soothing.
The band Hammock has tons of great tunes to help you drift away, but when I’m looking for music specifically for meditation it’s tough to beat their album “Maybe They Will Sing For Us Tomorrow”. No lyrics, no beats, just gentle rising and fading of various guitar and keyboard tones – minimal distraction provides optimal results.
