This is a Scientifically Determined Playlist for Tripping

quote [ Two mandolins enter dreamily. They slowly build, occasionally fluttering, occasionally crescendoing, but always moving forward. This is what you hear in the first minute of a psychedelic treatment that could change the course of your life. The effects of the drug may not be noticeable yet, but one thing is very clear: This is a special space. The swelling soundscape surrounding you is the artistry of psychologist Bill Richards, Ph.D., who developed the playlist specifically for your psychedelic trip. ]

Haven't tripped in years, but I was a big fan of the Dazed and Confused soundtrack and that era of music.

Oh, and it's good that people are doing research on the psychological benefits of psychedelics. We need a lot more of that.

I like that he didn't go for some of the more obvious choices (like psytrance, or Pink Floyd, as much as I love DSOTM). Barber's Adagio for Strings is one of my absolutely favorite pieces of music, as is Fauré's Requiem. A little surprised Philip Glass didn't make the cut. I need to listen to more Elgar, Górecki, Pärt...

I always preferred "Sister" and "Daydream Nation"-era Sonic Youth when I was tripping back in the early 90s. Tripping to the previous generation's psychedelic music just seemed too self-consciously "retro".

Yeah, I resisted DSOTM for a while for that same reason, but... it's pretty fucking awesome.

These days I like stuff like Röyksopp and The War on Drugs but I haven't tripped in a while - finding it really hard to listen to music at all lately.

I like this; will definitely use it. The last time I tripped was to the Interstellar soundtrack. Tripping to music is always a unique transcendent experience.

Live in Pompeii is pretty good for this sort of job.

Shall look into this list, too.
