Electronic Focus Music

Meridian’s album coverMeridian’s album cover

Meridian is a concept album of 10 loopable tracks (plus some bonuses) created during Record Production Month (otherwise known as February) in 2014. It was written and produced by myself using Propellerhead’s Figure iOS software. “Electronic focus music” is a play on the EDM genre.

Each “song” is designed to provide dynamic (yet steady) background music while you do focused work. The concept was inspired by old video games, which you could play for many consecutive hours while the same looping track played in the background of the game (think of Pokemon, for instance, and the songs I’m thinking of probably pop into your head, too).
