Something relaxing

As I’ve learned with this very old blog, embedding stuff from other web pages will probably get stale or even break in a few years. Oh well! The above is a beautiful playlist on IDAGIO, a “classical” music streaming service.

I just put classical in quotes because it has all kinds of things from medieval chants to super modern pieces. When people say Classical, you know what to expect though. Acoustic instruments for the most part ;) Okay there’s my rant on “classical.”

Spotify isn’t the best place to get topic quality performances, but the biggest hits are available. Here’s a particularly nice album by John Cage. It’s mostly calm, minimal piano. Skip to #15 – In A Landscape – for my personal favorite. Stretch out and close your eyes:

That’s all.

Be well :)
