Listening to our Baker Miller soundtrack is a universally accessible path to unwind, increase productivity and fall asleep when overly stimulated. This is achieved by lowering the listener’s blood pressure, stress levels and heart rate by utilising dreamy rhythms with slow, low impulse frequencies to induce a dreamlike state. In fact, the soundtrack is considered so effective that it’s dangerous to listen to while driving!
Our Baker Miller soundtrack has even been shown to induce a 65% reduction in anxiety and a 35% reduction in usual physiological resting rates. Brain imaging studies have shown that the music works at a very deep level within the brain, stimulating not only those regions responsible for processing sound, but also ones associated with emotions.
What makes the soundtrack so effective is that it contains a sustaining rhythm that starts at 60 beats per minute and gradually slows to around 50, reducing the listener’s heartbeat naturally to match the BPM of the soundtrack. The song’s length is also critical to its process. It takes about five minutes for ‘entrainment’ - the process occurring, to happen. And there is no repeating melody, which allows your brain to completely switch off because you are no longer trying to predict what is coming next.
Current physiological findings show that music at 60 BPM or less can cause the brain to synchronise with the beat, developing and inducing alpha brainwaves, the same brainwaves present when we are relaxed and conscious. Delta waves and Theta waves on the other hand are the two slowest brain waves and occur primarily during our deepest state of dreamless sleep and/or during Zen meditation. In order to induce sleep most effectively, a combination of Alpha, Delta and Theta brainwaves need to be stimulated. To produce this most effectively, a person may need to devote at least 45 minutes, in a relaxed position, listening to the Baker Miller Soundtrack.
