Zen Music – concentrate, study, meditation – relaxdaily N°047

Music to concentrate, to study to, for meditation and much more…

Introduction

This simple image relaxation video by relaxdaily is 9 minutes 2 seconds long and focuses on a single theme of a single scene of an image of a flower in combination with calming Zen music.

Video Components

Theme

The theme of the video is narrowly focused on a single view of a flower which I find good for concentration and relaxation.

Scenes

There is just one scene used throughout this simple relaxation video, that of a flower.

Audio

The audio used in this relaxation video is a calming Zen instrumental track which I find great for relaxation purposes.

Images

The single scene of this simple image relaxation video is great and shows a pink flower above still water with a reflection in the water with the background out of focus to emphasis the flower.

The image size used for this relaxation video fills the screen completely, however, the image is spoiled a bit by the brand of the website (relaxdaily.net) being written over the image.

Transitions

As there is only one image used throughout this relaxation video, there are no transitions. However, there is a nice slow fade in from white at the start and fade out to white at the end.

Special Techniques

There appears to be some special techniques used in this video. The first is a slow zooming out of the image. The second is in the form of a yellow fading colour filter applied to the top right corner of the image, maybe to give the feeling of sunshine.

Conclusion

In my opinion, this straightforward, uncomplicated arrangement of one scene of a single flower above water with a calming Zen music instrumental is great for relaxation. Having just one theme means the video is focused and the use of just one scene or 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 scene of the flower is lovely to look at whilst listening to the calming Zen music instrumental. The video is good as a focal point for contemplation and relaxation. A pity the website name is displayed over the image.

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 flowers 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.
