[prMac.com] Sunshine Coast, Buddina – Author of “How Does Music Aid Sleep? Literature Review,” Thomas Dickson is proud to announce the release of Can’t Sleep 1.1.5, an important update to the soundscapes composed through his sleep app on iOS and Android devices. Can’t Sleep’s real-time computer-generated soundscapes now have reduced musical activity to minimize cognitive arousal thereby reducing sleep-onset insomnia.
Can’t Sleep is informed by 100+ research articles on music and sleep psychology. According to Dickson, “studies have shown music to be one of the most effective non-drug therapies for sleep but not all use cases of music are equal”. Regular music is often too distracting or engaging because it is so structured, Can’t Sleep sounds like walking through a forest of instruments and sounds.
Can’t Sleep composes soundscapes with 200+ instruments and sounds to provide a unique listening experience and further allows users to disable any part of the soundscape to decrease engagement and/or cognitive arousal.
One of the innovative features of Can’t Sleep is that the soundscapes are composed in real-time and are never the same. “The problem with listening to the same music every night is that it becomes too familiar and then frustratingly repetitive” says Dickson. Using Can’t Sleep regularly and only at bedtime, the soundscapes can become strongly associated with sleep but not repetitive.
Can’t Sleep is the only sleep app that allows users to choose both the instrument timbre and sounds for sleep. The DIY soundscape builder includes realistic classical, ambient and ethnic instruments as well as relaxing sound effects and ambience. These include piano, cello, synthesizers, pan flutes, tabla, Tibetan bells, bird song, rain, waterfalls and much more. “Music is a very personal experience. Our favourite sounds can reduce stress through visualisation and reminding us of the past” says Dickson.
Available on Android, iPhone and iPad, the app is lightweight saving battery life, storage and device memory. For increased performance, after 45 minutes of playing soundscapes the app stops, by which time most individuals have fallen asleep.
