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.
