The music is written in four phases. You will not necessarily be able to tell when one stops and the next begins, but each has a distinct purpose.
PHASE ONE: Engage the listener by reflecting his/her present surroundings - an office or a busy environment. Move their state of consciousness into a deeply relaxed state.
PHASE TWO: Moving into the open, lead the listener into a state of consciousness associated with regeneration, holding him/her there suspended, floating.
PHASE THREE: Using musical onomatopoeia to represent re-birth or dawn, 'lift' the listener into a normal waking state, (thus avoiding any groggy feeling).
PHASE FOUR: Establish a state of alertness - the music makes particular reference to alerting sound icons - cockerels, audible signals and jingles.
It is envisaged that Espresso could be used when needed at the workplace or at home, where factors such as a late night or international travel has made the individual particularly drowsy. Fergus Rougier, the producer of Espresso comments:
"There is so much coffee you can drink and with the proliferation of mobile computing devices and mobile phones, there has never been a better time for music to be considered as a serious and accessible life-tool.
Research now shows that music can do way more than just relax and Espresso is to our knowledge the first attempt to create a modern soundtrack that is specifically designed to enhance performance. We see it coming into its own in combating the effects of hard partying, long work hours and foreign travel."
