A compilation that takes the lullaby genre into the realm of experimental electronic music, assembled from an open call for experimental lullabies launched in May 2014.
The compilation includes tracks by well-known artists as well as first releases, with material on vinyl from d.R.e.G.S, 0xA, xname, Erich Barganier and Samuel Hertz and an expanded digital edition containing tracks from Thor Magnusson, Robert B. Lisek, Repl Electric, Claude Heiland-Allen, Marta Zapparoli and more hand-picked gems from the experimental techno, noise and electroacoustic scenes.
The record guides the listener through eerily echoed music boxes to experiments in a syncopated 8-bit berceuse, with detours into clean planes of glassy textures, dives into opaque amniotic drones and concentrated, tender yet ominous moments, such as the sound of beating hearts against saturated, distant washes of feedback. Composed for Nintendo, Atari, Pure Data, Supercollider, D-Box, tape recorders, as well as ultraStethoscopes or using radioactive materials, these recordings treat the lullaby genre as an example of consciousness-altering music.

The piece was composed and performed on Supercollider to be performed for as long as desired. It combines pink noise and a cyclical structure to form a lullaby that allows for the listener to detach from the exterior world. Pink noise blocks out ambient noises in the same fashion as the hum of a fan while the cyclical structure allows the song to play while the listener sleeps.
Mastered in Germany by Calyx.
