We worked with Dr Chris Howard to apply concepts from cognitive psychology to our generative music algorithm, designed to play sounds and tones to relax the listener. This algorithm is coupled with a mesmerising interactive interface to engage the user in a state of flow.
ChillScape makes it easy to fit a dose of mindfulness into a busy schedule. People are using it to manage spells of anxiety, to help with their sleep routine or as warm-up to a traditional mediation session.
*** What some of our users are saying ***
“Incredibly calming even when feeling very upset and anxious”
“I felt my mind clearing in a way I’ve never been able to achieve through attempts at mindfulness meditation“
“Best quick response mindfulness app I’ve come across :)”
“I recommend this to anyone that works long hours and want something to take the edge off”
“…my first session caused my to fall asleep for three hours”
“A great warm-up to a meditation session”
*** This is how it works ***
Each chill session starts with low pitched tones, similar to those experienced in the womb.
As you pop bubbles melodies play and the soundscape evolves. Layers of sound are gradually introduced – with frequencies known to stimulate calm and create feelings of euphoria.
Underneath the music there is a soft ‘pulse’ that gradually slows from 60 to 50 beats per minute through the session. A phenomenon called “entrainment” means that your breath and body will naturally try to follow this rhythm, consequently reducing your heart rate and blood pressure.
As you progress the generative audio engine will produce new sounds providing you with a continually evolving experience.
The new autoplay mode lets you use the app when your screen is off. Just close your eyes and enjoy the musical progression.
HealthKit integration and in-app stats let you keep track of the length of your sessions.
