Cant Sleep is for anyone who has trouble falling asleep, maintaining sleep or waking up in the morning and that music can be more than just relaxing.

“I would recommend Can’t Sleep. It’s something that has helped me get to sleep and I genuinely enjoy the range of music that is involved within the app.” Raissa Martin

What makes Cant Sleep different?

There are hundreds of sound and music apps for sleep on the market, and several do a fine job of encouraging relaxation. But most just play generic ambient music, classical music and sounds - whereas there are specific musical features and properties of sound that can aid sleep.

The purpose of listening to music for sleep isnt merely to reduce stress - its to improve your sleep through physiological and psychological changes.

What makes the soundscapes in Cant Sleep better than most sleep music?

  • The soundscapes require less mental resources to process with subtle musical variation and minimal music activity
  • The soundscapes have no dissonance or tension to reduce mental arousal
  • Input your heart rate and the soundscapes will match it, then slowly decrease in speed
  • The background ambient sounds (rain, waterfalls, white noise) drown out distracting noises
  • The soundscapes are different every listen, so they dont become repetitive or ineffective with continued use
  • Build a custom soundscape from sounds you associate with sleep (e.g. wave sounds if you grew up by the beach) and that association can help you sleep
  • Your musical taste matters, building a custom soundscape from sounds you enjoy creates a more pleasant experience, or alternatively disable any part of the soundscape you dont enjoy
  • The soundscapes automatically turn off after 45 minutes, which is recommended in the music sleep literature

Give the soundscapes a listen and youll hear straight away how different Cant Sleep sounds.

“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.” Thomas Dickson
