To escape isnʼt to run away. To escape is to allow the mind a vacation, space to relax and recalibrate. Those with a healthy appreciation of the fantastical are better able to handle the material, and if travel broadens the mind, just imagine what unbridled escapism can do!
Music to Escape Reality is the cinematic score to your psychological journey. Each piece of music has been chosen for the richness of its auditory landscape, the vividness with which it depicts the rolling planes of the imagination, and for its potential to guide you as you suspend disbelief.
This playlist is a portal to disengage with what is real and explore the infinite unknown, because to escape isnʼt to run away.
To escape is to be free.

My battle with sleep is a tale as old as time. If I want to fall asleep, I’m chronically awake. If I want to wake up, I’m an immovable, eternal entity.
