Sound therapists and Manchester band Marconi Union compiled the song. Scientists played it to 40 women and found it to be more effective at helping them relax than songs by Enya, Mozart and Coldplay.
Weightless works by using specific rhythms, tones, frequencies and intervals to relax the listener. A continuous rhythm of 60 BPM causes the brainwaves and heart rate to synchronise with the rhythm: a process known as ‘entrainment’. Low underlying bass tones relax the listener and a low whooshing sound with a trance-like quality takes the listener into an even deeper state of calm.
First post in ages, Rightfully a Bioshock Infinite one...
I pre-ordered the game because I anticipated it’s excellence, and I wasn’t disapointed.
Right from the start I was filled with a sense of nostalgia harking back to the start of the first Bioshock and how you started off at a lighthouse.
I was filled with a sense of sheer awe when I broke through the clouds into Columbia the first time, I literally had my breath taken for a few seconds.
I was shocked and a little disgusted when I saw the mock wedding between the white man and black woman during the raffle. I decided to take the good guy route and was going to throw the ball at the announcer.
I could spend a whole day just talking about each bit, so I’m going to skip to Elizabeth.
I’ve never felt so attracted to a fictional character, everything about Elizabeth is just pure brilliance and perfection. I totally fell in love with her; her voice, face, and I loved how cute and happy she was just after you & her escaped the tower.
In short, Bioshock Infinite is a true masterpiece of gaming, worth every ounce of hype it was given pre-release.
Seven years ago, the Ninth Doctor told Rose to run, and in doing so, set things in motion for the new generation of Doctor Who. Every Whovian, even if you didn't like season one, raise your glasses and toast Christopher Eccleston and Billie Piper for bringing a legend and a tv icon back to the small screen.
