Sleep Theory Volume 1

Introducing a new series from Altus called "Sleep Theory".

Originally I had planned this to be warm drone style release for sleeping purposes, but I found what I had created to be tedious and boring. In fact, after completing the first pass of the three tracks, I considered scrapping the entire project.

Instead, I decided to re-purpose and re-design the existing elements into something more pleasing to my ears. These are tonally active yet hypnotic soundscapes, and in my opinion require multiple listens to get the most use out of them.

It's best experienced at lower listening levels, and headphones are encouraged. Available to download in 320kb MP3, and FLAC for those who rather to burn to CD.

Wonderful work as usual! Thank you so much for sharing the labor of hours of blood sweat and tears!



Blood, sweat and tears?  Nah, doing this stuff is pure fun and pleasure.  :)
Thanks Chad.

This is a nice album, with 3 different ambiences.
I mostly like Session 2 (sounds sweet, soft, airy ; lovely) and Session 3 (more melancholic).

Done with heart, and I like it.
Thank you  :D


This is very good, definately good sleep music. Cheers.


Quite different from your previous works :) And I actually like it. Got hooked since the first minute, so well done, sir. Reminds me Palancar. Love it, deep, mellow and dreamy sounds.


Hey everyone.  I'm glad to hear you've been enjoying it.
