Jon Hopkins & # 39; upcoming album is at the forefront of a new field emerging at the intersection of music and wellness.
His upcoming album, Music for Psychedelic Therapy, is exactly what one would expect: a guided tour of healing in an altered state.
According to The Guardian, the album itself is designed for the average duration of a ketamine trip. "We're entering an era where this type of therapy will be legal, widespread, and you need music for it," said Hopkins. To me it feels like there's a frontier here – a new genre of music. "
Ketamine has recently shown to be groundbreaking in reducing the potential for suicide and the frequency of major depressive episodes in people with a history of mental illness.
In an excerpt from the album published on YouTube, Hopkins combines persistent melodic soundscapes with a warm undertone of subbass. Sounds merge and slowly, almost imperceptibly, evolve over time as kaleidoscopic images unfold across the screen. The experience-based work should be consumed in a unique setting and is free from drum sounds or any concept of musical time measurement.
Hopkins' album Music For Psychedelic Therapy will be fully released on November 12th.
