I would go for SOLARIS (Martinez), since it's very low-key and repetitive.

Juan Carlos, I know you are Spanish but this thread title is bugging me; it should be "what scores might put a baby to sleep?". The current title is wrong, you can not sleep something; you can put something or someone 'to' sleep.

P.S. and to answer your question, why, Jerry Goldsmith of course! Check the hair for '666' marks though. wink



Hope you and your baby get a good night's rest smile

I made the following for my boy when he was a baby and when my daughter was born I played the same CD to her. Worked like a charm!

-Erik-


1) I hadn't thought of Cole's theme. Wonderful. My list was obviously missing Kamen.
2) I will now have to re-tag all of my music with composers last names first. Curse you!
3) It's amazing how many horror scores are on these lists.

I recommend some of the ambient, but beautiful scores in the last few years -- CRASH (Isham), IN THE VALLEY OF ELAH (Isham), BREAKING AND ENTERING (Underworld/Yared), THE LOVELY BONES (Eno) etc. I am very much awake and wallowing in their beauty myself, but a baby could probably fall asleep to them. They have that ambiance.

Fixed!

Thanks to everyone for your answers.

I will try to make a list or CD-R with some of your suggestions.

Cheers!

I can't believe no one mentioned Bruno Coulais' "Babies!"

There's a Miklos Rozsa album that Varese has the rights to, which they released on CD, and most of whose tracks they remastered for the Centenary selection 3CD.

It was originally called 'Widescreen Spectaculars' and is not too well received by most Rozsa fans because the performance in Hamburg, conducted by one Richard Muller-Lampertz is a bit slow and very warbly with the choral vibrato. The album was transcribed for some reason by a composer called Cascarino, and he made some edits. The sound is stunning though.

On that selection is a version of the lullaby 'Nativity' from 'King of Kings', which differs from all other performances in that Cascarino has made the whole thing rallentando towards the end. The piece slows down, and stops completely at two points, as though a child is gradually falling asleep, and the lullaby is winding down.

There are indeed two rests in Rozsa's original score, and maybe he intended the piece this way, since so much of that score had to be speeded and shoved into the hectic editing of that flawed film. He later always conducted it fast though, so it's hard to say.

A lot of John Barry scores will.

Also, many British TV scores.

BED OF ROSES by Michael Convertino was the first thing I thought of. It's rather lovely and ethereal.

I have a baby that doesn't sleep too much?

In your opinion what scores could be appropiate for this purpose or at least some that might calm the baby.

Thanks in advance for your answers.

Best


Juan,

I have a son who is 20 now, but as a young child (1-4 years of age) he had trouble falling to sleep. Music may not be the answer but what I did was I would lay next to him and he would eventually fall asleep. I too fell asleep many times with him and my wife would wake me up at around 10:30 pm which meant that I missed most of the evening. Such is life and parenthooding. Good luck.

THE RUSSIA HOUSE, both film and especially the score used to put me to sleep.

I sold the CD a few years ago at a local Flea Market..:-(

If you really want to play something that can put an infant to sleep - if you can find it, play Danny Kaye's I'll Take You Dreaming from The Court Jester. Works like a charm - that's what it's designed to do and what it does in the film.
