What is MusiCure?

Background for the specially composed and evidence based MusiCure music, and nature films

MusiCure is specially composed original music, created with the specific purpose to reduce stress, and create a soothing and inspiring atmosphere. More than 20 years of development and the study of results from many research projects in several countries, form the foundation for the creation of MusiCure. The music and nature films is used today in many different types of treatment and research projects.
MusiCure is created by musician and composer Niels Eje, and producer Inge Mulvad Eje, and a characterization of the music is: A special kind of  'universal' and 'genre-less' soundscapes that appeal to everyone regardless of music taste, listening habits and preferences in music in general. The purpose is to convey a positive stress-free, inspiring and motivating atmosphere, which is relaxing and life-affirming, through high quality original music.
The compositions consist of instrumental soundscapes, performed on acoustic instruments by highly trained classical soloists*, as well as unique recordings of nature sounds, which are carefully selected and discreetly integrated into the music.

The scientific documentation and research results with hospital patients, on which the MusiCure music is based, began more than 20 years ago, in 1998 at Copenhagen University Hospital (Rigshospitalet). The internationally published articles describing the effect of MusiCure are written by independent researchers from several countries, and it is the researchers themselves who have taken the initiative to these studies. Today, more than 35 scientific articles have been published in international medical journals, which are listed under RESEARCH here on the site.

Composer Niels Eje and producer Inge Mulvad Eje, who created MusiCure, have no influence on how the studies is performed, but merely provide the specially composed content in the programs used for the patients. The MusiCure repertoire also contains specially produced films with nature, which has been carefully edited for the music, and the MusiCure Pillow with a high quality built-in sound system.
