# I woke way too early so lulled myself back to sleep with an extended loop of Stone in Focus by Aphex Twin downloaded from YouTube.

I almost always sleep with the bedroom window open so the music blended perfectly with pre-dawn birdsong and the occasional whisper of car tires on a distant road for a perfect outside-in experience.

It reminded me of a "field recording" of the same piece I heard a while back:

    combining music and ambient/natural sounds is such a nice experience. I am unfamiliar with that Aphex Twin track - just listening to it now.

    It's one of my "go to" pieces, especially the extended loop. It's less known than some of his others because it wasn't included on the CD release of Selected Ambient Works II.
