“Lush, exquisite, flawless, refined, striking, beautiful … we could go on and on with adjectives to describe the music of Deepspace. One of our favorite discoveries in the past year, this is an artist to keep a close eye on.”

“The Deepspace sound is familiar enough to catch the ears of spacemusic fans while at the same having enough original textures and colours so as to not sound like anyone else in particular”

– Mike G – Ambientmusicguide.com

“Mirko Ruckels is a great new talent, a cross between Steve Roach and Stars of the Lid, with a dash of Budd and Eno”

– Phil Derby – electroambient space

“Compliments on your fine debut album, have been listening to this lengthy and highly varied electronic album and do appreciate the vidna reference and inspiration. Hope you’ll continue to expand and refine your personal artistic statement as an electronic musician. You’re walking the right path…”

– vidnaObmana/ fear falls burning

“Deepspace is the moniker of the Australian musician Mirko Ruckels, who has established himself as a mature composer of well-rendered electronic space music in a short period of time.”

– Bert Strolenberg – Sonic Immersion

SleepStream 2 is finally here!

It’s been a while since you heard any news about SleepStream. That’s because while you’ve been relaxing to the sounds of SleepStream we’ve been secretly busy with the fantastic Sleepstream 2!

With more than 600,000 iphone and ipod touch users downloading Sleepstream over the last 2 years we have collected a wealth of user feedback.  Based on this feedback and consultation with experts from sleep research and hyponotherapy a number of new original features are avaliable in Sleepstream 2:

Stunning Sound Quality
Sound quality is vital to sleep and relaxation applications. That’s why the 100+ sound tracks in SleepStream 2 are professionally mastered. Sounds of deep, rich drones, calming ocean waves, gentle forest rain and distant seagulls – to name a few – will be your first class journey into a deeply relaxed state.

Overlays and Guided Voice Sessions

New in SleepStream 2 is the ability to mix background sounds with overlays – for example voice tracks or music. For a limited time, SleepStream 2 comes with two free guided relaxation and energy sessions and 45 minutes of calming music – all available from the downloads-tab.

51 Binaural Beats and Binaural Beat Programs
In addition to breathtaking audio, SleepStream offers specially designed binaural beats that can be integrated into the sound experience.

When your brain tries to process two different tones, one delivered to each ear by headphones or earplugs, it creates a sensation of a rhythmic beat – a kind of auditory illusion. These beats have been shown to stimulate the brain’s activity associated with states such as relaxation, sleep, focus and energy by a process known as entrainment.

SleepStream 2 offers 51 binaural beats and binaural beat programs. The basic binaural beats stay at one specific entrainment frequency, while the binaural beat programs move from one entrainment frequency to another, taking you from your current state to your desired state in a certain amount of time.

Unique Audio Engine and Sound Generators
The AutoBlend audio engine ensures a new listening experience every time you use SleepStream 2. By randomly combining hundreds of sound loops even your most used sounds won’t be repeated. The audio engine also allows you to mix background sounds, overlays and binaural beats in any combination!

Breathtaking Visualizations
SleepStream 2 gives you the complete getaway with scenic pictures and video loops to view while listening to the audio programs; drift into a world of relaxation.

Designed for Power Naps!
A power nap is a short sleep session which terminates before deep sleep (or slow wave, delta sleep) occurs. Experiments show that an average power-nap duration of 20 minutes is most effective. SleepStream’s timer function makes it easy to enjoy power-naps! Just engage the timer and alarm, and SleepStream will gently wake you after your session has ended.
