LEGO’s gentle and satisfying mindful mix is seven audio tracks created using only pieces of LEGO.

The nostalgic sound of searching through a box of LEGO bricks has been harnessed in the name of relaxation with the release of a white noise playlist, LEGO-style.

If you’ve ever suffered the trauma of treading on a piece of LEGO, this playlist may not be for you. Research has however found that 73% of adults are looking for new ways to destress, and this is LEGO’s response.

Each audio track on the LEGO White Noise playlist was created using only the clinking and clicking sounds that LEGO bricks make.  Sound designers apparently experimented with 10,000 different sounds from the bricks and other elements in a quest to find the most relaxing combinations.

The seven tracks celebrate sounds like the joining together of LEGO pieces – “It All Clicks” – and the satisfying noise of emptying LEGO bricks all over the floor in a big pile – “The Waterfall.”

The company said it’s a white noise playlist “designed to help listeners find a moment of zen in their day, making it the perfect audio accompaniment for falling asleep, unwinding, or relaxing through LEGO building.”

The playlist can be accessed on 15 music streaming platforms including Spotify.

In other LEGO news, Universal Music Group has just given a fictional LEGO character a record deal. DJ and producer L.L.A.M.A was “discovered” via the LEGO VIDYO app, a platform which lets children produce and star in their own music videos.

According to Universal it’s the first time a LEGO minifigure has signed a record deal. L.L.A.M.A constantly wears a llama-headed helmet.
