Solving Bedtime Problems with High Tech Lullabies.
New Lullabies 2 (2004) Album now available
By using the latest understanding of musical tuning, and the human brain
wave patterns found during sleep, Charles Lucy has produced a new recording.
Lullabies (from around the world) encourage sleep with new
renditions and special tunings of traditional lullabies from around the world.
When played to small children they have the effect of making them drowsy and
gradually they fall asleep.

These well-established lullabies were collected by Dorothy Berliner Commins and published in 1967 by Random House in Lullabies of the World. They have been reproduced here with kind permission from her estate and her daughter. The lullabies have been found effective for generations. Now by adding the technology of alpha and sub-alpha beating to natural tuning, the ultimate child soother has been developed. The slowing rhythms lull your baby to sleep whilst introducing the sounds of diverse types of music. It is anticipated that children brought up using these sounds will easily appreciate other music from around the world. The rhythms and intonations, which may at first sound strange to adult Western ears, will be familiar for them.
Play LucyTuned Lullabies quietly in the nursery at bedtime. To those who have previously only experienced and appreciate Western musical tuning, it may at first sound very different, yet see what a difference it makes to bedtime. It also works on adults so avoid use when driving or using machinery.
