    Hi all [​IMG]

    

I am very passionate about music and create soothing music mixes as a hobby in genres like: modern classical, ambient, piano, electronica etc. 
    What kind of Modern Classical and Ambient music soothes and relaxes you?

    I will share some mixes with you. Maybe somebody else enjoys these also and the music would be a good companion for you in studying, working, relaxing, reading, using public transportation etc.

    The mix is called “The Brightest Lights in the Darkest Skies

    How do you like it?
    
Do you have any similar music mixes recommendations that might fit the same style?
    I saw topics about individual songs like Ambient etc but I am mostly interested in longer musical journeys that tie together various artists. But of course, individual song recommendations are welcome as well.

    Best wishes,

    Hey there quietstorm - you may like this mini mix I made a while ago if you're into ambient mixes. It's dark ambient though, and I wouldn't necessarily call it soothing... it's not background music either really (unless you want you creeping dread in the background!) - best listened to in total darkness.

    Ólafur Arnalds has made some damn good stuff. I found out about him when looking for tracks from the "Masters of Sex" OST. This one was not on there but it's my favorite so far:
