Weightless: "Most relaxing song ever"
On October 16th 2011, Marconi Union created an eight minute track, 'Weightless' in collaboration with the British Academy of Sound Therapy.
In a scientific study commisioned by the Radox, it was labelled as the "most relaxing song ever". According to scientists at the renowned Mindlab institution it induced a 65 per cent reduction in overall anxiety and brought test subjects resting pulse rates to a level 35 per cent lower than their usual resting rates. The song features guitar, piano and manipulated field recordings. It is punctuated throughout by low tones that supposedly induce a trance-like state. -- Marconi Union - Weightless / SoundCloud
