Here's a few :
Brian Eno - Thursday Afternoon
Global Communication - 76.14
Caroline Lavelle - Spirit
Ed Alleyne-Johnson - Purple Electric Violin
Edgar Froese - Aqua ( that'll get her going , in more ways than one ! )
Gas - Konigsforst
Nah und Fern
Harold Budd - Abandoned cities
Johann Johannson - Englaborn
Klaus Schulze - Kontinuum
Lisa Gerrard - The mirror pool
Loop Guru - The Third Chamber
Plastikman - Consumed .
That lot should last nearly 24 hours and if at the end of that time she still hasn't dropped play her Release The Bats by The Birthday Party . That should do the trick !
Good luck . You're gonna need it .
Thanks for the great list! I have listened to bits from many of the artists and like Have you listened to And In the Endless Pause There Came the Sound of Bees?
HiFi / A/V / Bedroom
Just remembered a suggestion from another thread
try Ulrich Schnauss Underrated Silence, after listening I bought the CD straight away, nice and relaxing.
Good luck and congratulations
If you are a fan of Ulrich Schnauss you must (if you haven't already) listen to Blue Skied 'An Clear. Unfortunately Underrated Silence does not appear to be on spotify, but great suggestion, I'm a big fan of Schnauss and the Morr Music label
In case it hasn't already been mentioned, something from Bryan Ferry / Roxy music (eg. Avalon)
Thanks for your continued suggestions Cno
Fwiw, my sonos queue is currently at 528 tracks! I have some serious listening to be getting on with

Nice try, but no - already chosen!
Hi Ben, it's really nice what you are doing and I expect it will be appreciated but (sorry for stating the obvious) just don't get carried away and forget to include all of her favourite songs in this playlist - I suspect no amount of soothing music would be better than her favourite songs which make her happy.

Thanks for the tip, i'll give that a try when I am off later in the week.
You could try the 30 second snippits available on the Amazon mp3 store for the ulrich schnauss album.
If you like a bit of ambient, the try stars of the lid "and their refinemet of the decline" in particular track 3 "articulated silences part 2 which uses strings in an orchestral fashion along with some electronics. I have found it profound and soothing.
This I know is on Spotify I checked before replying !!
It's another tip I gleaned from another thread, big up to the provider BTW.
Maybe worth waiting until the big day is over and give a serious listen to.
Thanks for the thought Steve I have included a number of songs from a playlist we've both listened to a lot recently, will be checking if there's anything in particular she wants on and running it all past her beforehand to see if there's anything she doesn't like / doesn't approve of.
Many thanks toyota man
It looks like the Schnauss album is a new release, and as his earlier work is on spotify I'm hopeful it'll appear at some stage. I've added it to my amazon wish list so I don't forget. I've also added the Stars of the Lid album to my queue, I like the sound of the title I am 'starring' any tracks I like the sound of to go back to later, although I'm not sure quite how much music time I'll get for a while....
I am sure the little one will take up quite a bit of your time, but as they say patience is a virtue and from the suggestions you have had you have a really cool play list as long as your arm and further.
Good Luck and let me know how little one fares and if you liked the suggestions.
All the best
Far From the Maddening Crowds - Chicane
15 years old and still has a place close to the top of my most played albums list.
Ghost - Devin Townsend Project
I dont think anyone expected this from the lunatic that is Devin "Heavy Devy" Townsend (Anyone that could come up with an album like Ziltoid, which kicks ass btw, is downright certifiable!)
How about some mellow, beautiful Icelandic music?
Strafraenn Hakon and the Apron EP or anything by Sigur Ros. All on Spotify.
Internet - laptop - DAC - amp - lots of headphones.
"A music lover will stop what he's doing and stay glued to a favorite piece of music even if it's coming over a 3" speaker or a public-address system..." - Ken Rockwell
We have Giants by Chicane, which we love but is more dance floor than birthing pool! I have added Far From the Maddening Crowds to have a listen to, unfortunately your other suggestion does not appear to be on spotify. Thanks for your suggestions
