In general, I’m not a fan of using music to help with meditation. I believe that becomes too distracting. However, there is music out there that is meditative. I like the use of ambient music not as an aid to meditation (it would be distracting), but as a means of relaxing in general. Hey, in this society, we all need to relax, don’t we?
What’s ambient music? Well, Wikipedia has a good explanation of it. Basically it is music that usually doesn’t always have a beat and is often quite relaxing, although it doesn’t always have to be.
http://stillstream.com/ is a good place to go to listen to ambient music to get a flavor for what it is like.
I have experimented a little bit with making ambient music. You can listen to “Rainy Night” here.
Enjoy, and relax.
