i'm looking for symphonies to listen to while having an lsd-trip. i don't believe i'm the only one who listens to this kind of music while tripping, but i just couldn't find any advice anywhere else.
for many years i've been listening to all genres of classical music, my favourite being solo piano music, but always somehow neglecting symphonies. however, lately i've discovered that a symphony is the most perfect thing to trip to, mainly because a symphony is like a trip itself in some way - there's always this feeling like you're going somewhere along with the music, making some progress, overcoming problems, coming to a conclusion in the end. i love bach's fugues more than anything else, but they don't work like that at all, actually they are a nightmare to listen to while tripping.
but then not all of the symphonies are perfect either, the most famous ever beethoven's ninth, for instance, is too, what's the word, disjunct? and there is too much going on intellectually, while it is essential in this state to "let go" and embrace the emotional side of music. another bad example - dvorak's ninth. on the other hand, mauler's ninth, especially the final movement, is pure bliss.
i understand the criteria is very very vague. but maybe someone still will be able to help me out.
ps. i really hope this question will not make anyone feel uncomfortable, and i want to make it clear that i want to discuss music, not drugs.
