English synthesist and frequent Brian Eno collaborator Jon Hopkins shared this preview from his upcoming release, Music For Psychedelic Therapy.
“Psychedelic-assisted therapies are moving into legality across the world, and yet it feels like no one is talking about the music; the music is as important as the medicine,” notes Hopkins.
“In my own psychedelic explorations testing this music, I found a quote I had read would keep coming to mind. ‘Music is liquid architecture, architecture is frozen music.’ I love this idea of music as something you inhabit, something that works on you energetically.”
Music For Psychedelic Therapy is available for pre-order now on Bandcamp.

I agree that it is important to have musicians thinking about this and perhaps collabing with therapists to produce this type of music, which can be the primary driver during a session.
Glad someone is thinking about this- a potentially impactful field.
it’s not bad, the idea behind is good. However I wouldn’t recommend it for real psychedelic voyages. The imagery is quite good, but it is very important that when zooming in, each particle simulation should be at highest resolution; one should view tiny dots instead of blurred circles when zoomed in. Because this is what you see when you’re on a trip. You see particles, molecules, even atoms, very sharply, clearly. Although this depends much on the person’s former experience, and of course on the substance.
