I've had experiences in the past where I would hear faint music (all different kinds of music) mostly at night while it is really quiet or sometimes when I'd tried to fall asleep. I don't have braces or anything metal inside of me and I am 100% sure there was no source for the music possibly to be coming from. Like I said, I'm mostly in the middle of the wood or in my bed with past experiences. I was just wondering if anyone else had these experiences and if anyone knows the cause of the phenonema.

  • If I woke up looking like that, I would just run to the nearest living thing and just kill it.

Is it funk music?  If so, that just means you got the funk, man.

I've had times when in bed, trying to fall asleep, when I've thought I heard music (the base part, actually) coming from far away.  But after listening really hard for several minutes, I determined that it was just my own heart beat/blood running through my body.   dontgetit.gif

There's a medical condition where when you're falling asleep you hallucinate aurally, but right now I can't think of what it's called.  I'm sure one of the other posters will know.  

Also, what are your thoughts about tinnitus?  I have this and sometimes it can become almost rythmic frequencies that would be very easy to describe as faint music.  This doesn't happen to me often though, mainly it's a high or low pitched hum, or similar to an out of tune radio with static.

Searching for more truth, you learn more about what you didn't know, and realize there is so much more you don't know.   Celumnaz, Dec 2005

When I say different types of music I can hear guitars thrashing, drums banging, symbols crashing, or pianos playing, it's actual music not rhythemic beats, not anything blood rushing through my body, but actual music. And this is not just when I fall asleep or am tired, but a common aspect of it is that it only happens at night.

This has happened to me- like you when it's really quiet in the middle of the night.  It also happened to me once two summers ago while staying in a psych ward for 5 days because of a manic episode.  I heard the music (mostly the bass) during the day in my hospital room.  It sounded like it was coming from a basement.

I've heard music come from no source.  I used to hear a music box coming from the basement in my grandma's house every  night when I was younger.   A few nights ago I heard music while meditating..  I actually had a conversation about it with a friend today and the advice he gave me was, "Just listen to the music, because that's what it is."

Hi Stalingradk:

Yes, I've had those experiences, and it is part of what's called a "Hypnagogic State."  Once when I was very sleepy, I heard the most beautiful music.  I said to myself "I've got to get up and write down the notes so I'll be able to play it on my keyboard when I wake up."  But wouldn't you know it, I was so sleepy I fell asleep and woke up in the morning.  I couldn't remember anything about what was the melody of the song. rolleyes.gif

Believe it or not this is the only true 100% reliable means of testing insanity. Congratulations! You pass!!

In all seriousness, somebody with medical training could probably give you a definitive answer..

Are you sure this is an actual sound wave or is this 'mental music'? I play music in my mind all the time but it doesn't exist anywhere else. If this is an actual sound wave - if the music has a physical (or metaphysical) source then you should be able to capture this on a recording. Try that and see.

A few years ago, I was in my bedroom alone when I suddenly heard what sounded like a few seconds of a man talking on a radio broadcast. I couldn't make out the words. The sound appeared to have come from the floor just under me, but there was nothing on the floor that could have made such a noise.

What a coincidence...
Just yesterday when I was asleep in bed, I kept waking up like every hour (not sure the exact distance between the wakings because I don't have a clock in my room) and falling back asleep.
One of the times I woke up, I heard music that sounded very faint, but then it got louder and louder, like it was right in my ears, but it wasn't annoying at all. It had voice, along with instruments. I thought it sounded similar to the japanese music I listen to, but it was a song I've never heard before. I wish it had lasted longer before I fell back asleep. sad.gif

P.S. I miss spellchecker.

This sounds like an auditory version of a Hypnagogic hallucination (basically, a hallucination that occurs when you are about to fall asleep). They're not that uncommon.

"You say that it is your custom to burn widows. Very well. We also have a custom: when men burn a woman alive, we tie a rope around their necks and we hang them. Build your funeral pyre; beside it, my carpenters will build a gallows. You may follow your custom. And then we will follow ours." -Sir Charles Napier
