A romantic love song instrumental. Slow music for relaxation, created with ultimate love. Sometimes I’m just in a mood to create instrumentals which are slow (downbeat) and soothing. For chillout etc. This one is special. It’s music for the heart and soul. You can also use it as smooth background music or a colorful screensaver!

Conclusion

In my opinion, this straightforward, uncomplicated arrangement of one scene with instrumental music is ok for relaxation. Having just one theme means the video is focused and the use of just one image which fills the screen completely means it is highly focused. As the length of the video is relatively short, the use of a single image is ok. The image of a plume of smoke in the shape of a heart repeatedly changing colour is quite nice to look at and it functions as a focal point for contemplation and relaxation.

Bear in mind that with just one scene/image you may be inclined to fall asleep during relaxation. The aim of a relaxation session should be to remain awake and aware. As the intention of a relaxation session is to “not” fall asleep, this may be detrimental to relaxation. If I wanted to make any improvements I would use more images of plumes of smoke which slowly cross fade into each other to maintain a relaxed state.

As an ambient background video it is not really long enough but it could be put on a recurring loop. With only one scene/image the video itself is not very interesting and would therefore not be very good as an ambient background video. There may also be a tendency to fall asleep watching the video due to lack of scene variety. However, having said that, some people may just wish to have a single image with relaxing music playing in the background to help them relax while they are concentrating on other tasks, such as reading, and looking up occasionally at the scene.
