Sometimes music can empower contemplation.
From personal experience and preference, I find that one of the best types of music for self-reflection taps into New Age and Instrumental. It’s effortlessly emotional, and without lyrics it’s easy to listen and focus on your own thoughts.
I recently (like, today) discovered pianist and composer Christian Lundquist, who wrote and recorded this lovely piece. The melody alternates between E♭Major and its relative, c minor, giving it a somber yet serene disposition. It’s perfect for moments when you’re thinking about the meaning of life or a relationship that hurts so good.
