Music To Awaken the Soul

A sampling of my list while I work and play. I listen to a lot of classical, "soundtrack" (modern classical), techno / EDM, and indie folk.

Max Richter's [Vivaldi's] Four Seasons

The concerto you've a million times in a way you've never heard before.

Ludovico Einaudi

Anything and everything by Ludovico Einaudi. Start here.


It sounds how Iceland feels.

Erik Satie's Gnossienne No. 1

Under umbrella on rainy streets of 19th century France.

Alexandre DesPlat's River

All things DesPlat are wonderful.

Shigeru Umebayashi - In the Mood for Love

I've never seen this Japanese movie, but I imagine it to be the most haunting romance.

Paradis - Recto Verso

Jovial French low-fi.

Ryuichi Sakamoto & Alvo Noto's The Revenant

Low resonance.

Matthew Schoening's Odyssey

Infinite loop and recursion.

Ólafur Arnalds' Nils Frahm Mix

For when you're in flow.

Clann's Seelie

Universal pulse.


Dulcet tones.

Devorzhum (Dead Can Dance)

Melancholic World Beat with a soothing Eastern rhythm.
