Can’t Sleep was invented by Thomas Dickson, the Australian expert in music and sleep psychology. The artificially intelligent music helps you sleep by distracting you from wakeful thoughts, calming your mood and relaxing your body. By improving your sleep, you increase your motivation and productivity, reduce stress and anxiety, and decrease your risk of catching colds and flus. Simply choose your soundscape in the app, enjoy new relaxing music and you’ll wake up tomorrow having forgotten falling asleep. Check out our free music sleep tips and tricks checklist!

Australian expert in music for sleep

Hi! I’m a PhD student at the University of NSW, specialising in the use of music as a sleep aid. I’ve combined music psychology research, and app development skills to build a world-first sleep app that composes relaxing music. I made it genuinely customisable as I wanted people to be able to choose the style of music they love, the sounds and instruments that help them to relax, and to never be frustrated by boring repetition. I am keen to make this app the best it can be and give people real-world solutions to insomnia and daytime sleepiness problems.
