The Chill Room, 23 August 2020 at 00:00 ET on Radio Free Brooklyn
256k VBR, 117 minutes, the sound of enlightenment
The goal of this program is to take you to sleep. The music leads from binaural pulse beats down to slow brainwaves, and flows through a night. The stream is a model for consciousness itself. You will hear music for sleeping, dream language from James Joyce, occasional rises to REM-like states, shattered dream music, late night chill outs and gentle lullabies, until we land in pure delta waves. Go with it.
My personal favorite Chill Room. Shh. Make it softer.

18 Feb 2012 original program. This is a new edit in higher bitrate. Set list is unchanged. With thanks to my live listeners, to Ubuweb, to Transparency, to killradio.org, Radio Free Brooklyn, the Internet Archive, Emily Browning, and wfmu.org. A comment from the original post: "Bloody brilliant. Even at the library at high noon on a Saturday - 'dreams walking in broad daylight'". 10 March 2019. Be careful, not recommended for listening while driving.
