Who can make the ultimate lullaby?

Lullabies have been used, across cultures, since 2000BC to lull us to sleep. Lulling is the process of sending a person to sleep, typically through soothing sounds or movements.
It’s most commonly associated with parents singing to babies, but why can’t it be for adults too?

By examining the components of popular lullabies, could we create the ultimate song or piece of music that will help us to feel calm and drift into restful sleep? And if we could, what would it be like? What kind of instruments would it include?

The next chapter in our Sleep hub answers this question! We’ve produced two lullabies that can be enjoyed by adults or children, to test which one works the best. The difference is one’s been composed and played by humans and one’s been created by an Artificial Intelligence machine.

Which one works best for you?

Sit back, relax and hopefully (again) we can aid you to sleep.

 

Here is an audio only version of the same track if you prefer without the visuals:
