Stepping on a Lego may be a pain-inducing source of anxiety and anger, but is listening to the sounds of Legos a calming experience?
According to Lego’s head of creative Primus Manokaran, it is — so much so the company has created "Lego White Noise," an entire album of Lego-created like experimental music.
Created by various Lego pieces being poured out, sorted through, and put together, Manokaran described the album as “a collection of soundscapes” that aims to encourage relaxation and mindfulness.
Utilizing a variety of Lego sizes to create various sounds and tones, the album was inspired by the white noise trend.
“The acoustic properties of each brick was slightly different,” Manokaran said. “It was like composing with 10,000 tiny instruments.”
For example, “Built For Two” was created by the common sounds of building Legos piece by piece, clicking into one another.
“Searching For the One (Brick)” reflects one meticulously searching for the right piece, sifting through the avalanche of tiny pieces along the way.
Only available by streaming, "Lego White Noise," is comprised of seven tracks, with each track running about half an hour.
