Offering a holistic soundtrack for the spectrum of listening during sleeping and dreaming

For almost two decades ambient musician and consciousness explorer Michael Reiley has an interest in creating music for the liminal space between waking, dreaming, and sleep. Whether as a lullaby to drift you off asleep, subtle binaural beat frequencies to promote deep sleep, or hazy tape loops heard from the unconscious ear as a you traverse the dream worlds there's many ways to listen.

Sleeping

Soft musical tones allow the body to relax and fully melt into timeless sleep.

Dreaming

A soundtrack for the deep states of dreaming where our unconscious self comes alive to explore unknown realms.

Scientifically tuned and ancient frequencies are employed to promote ease, rest and relaxation

Acoustic instruments like piano and hand pan gently call the soul to dream land

Subtle Binaural Beat Frequencies create an immersive soundtrack for Lucid Dreaming

Open the heart and melt the barriers between waking and dreaming states.

Michael’s YouTube channel has many long-form Sleep Music pieces for all night sleep. There you can find Sonic Lullabies that drift off the silence that fade to a black screen to help you fall asleep fast.

Sleep and Dream Music Albums

Michael has produced two full length all night listening albums. Each album runs for about eight hours in length to be played by your bedside.

The Dream Cycles

This eight and a half-hour long album contains a carefully crafted mix of musical tones, binaural beats (for headphone listeners) tuned to aid sleep, long periods of silence or barely audible soundscapes to aid in the cycles of deep sleep, an extended session during the third phase of sleep to guide in lucid dreaming, and a gently unfolding piece of music on the piano that emerges slowly from the lucid dream suite like a mirage to welcome you into the Hypnopompic state of shifting towards waking consciousness.

Quiescent
Quiescent is a journey into a meditative dreamland. The album in its entirety is an eight-hour-long soundtrack patterned after the four sleep cycles. The music gently drifts with you as you release into slumber and then brings you back through to the other side of consciousness. This album can be experienced as a companion to a full night’s sleep or in smaller pieces during yoga, meditation, relaxation, or being.
A generative music system that uses the stars overhead to create ambient music and a sense of connection with the cosmos.
