Headphones on. Eyes closed. Music: take me away.

A soundtrack to watch the inside of your eyelids.
- Take your phone off the cradle and lock the doors.
- Find a comfortable chair, couch, or carpet to relax on.
- Secure your headphones tightly over your ears (bud listeners need not apply).
- Adjust the volume to a comfortable listening level, then push it two points beyond that.
- Situate yourself in front of a light source (best if you find one that flickers or pulsates.
- If you can get each songs to fade into the next one, do so.
- Allow the sonic and thematic shifts carry you, like a wave, to where they take you. Don’t panic; you won’t drown.
