Millions of people similarly turn to music to focus. Playlists that claim to offer music to help people concentrate are growing in popularity. The YouTube channel Chillhop Music and a similar channel called ChilledCow have a combined 5.3 million subscribers. Chillhop’s 24-hour livestreams of playlists like “beats to study/relax to” attract many thousands of listeners at a time, while its Spotify playlists boast around 130,000 listeners every month. The channel’s “lo-fi hip-hop” playlists (lo-fi refers to low-fidelity music, which has an intentionally “unpolished or rough” sound) feature tracks with light music mixed with ambient noise.

Victor Szabo, an assistant professor of music at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia who is writing a book about the ambient music genre, explains that lo-fi and ambient music can make the listener feel secure, because this type of music often features looping or sustained sounds or tones that allow the brain to “easily predict on a subconscious level how it will continue to sound.”

“The listener can turn their attention away from the sound and toward other things without being surprised or thrown off,” Szabo says. Ambient music “has a sort of cocooning effect.”
