My name is Peder B. Helland and I am the creator of Soothing Relaxation. I compose all the music uploaded to the channel. The videos are cut by me using photos and videos that I have licensed from very talented photographers and videographers.
Below you can read a timeline of my work. I have also included the big milestones that Soothing Relaxation has reached in the timeline.
In 2009, I uploaded my first music video to YouTube.
In 2012, I started making music on my digital keyboard. I quickly found out that I had a passion for making music. I experimented with a lot of different music over the years, ranging from Halloween music to meditation music. This was the first video I uploaded to my channel dedicated to original compositions.
In 2014, I decided that I wanted to make a special place on YouTube dedicated to relaxing music that I made. That's how Soothing Relaxation was born. It never crossed my mind that Soothing Relaxation could grow to the size it has today. I started the channel because I loved making music and also with the hope of being able to bring something positive to the few people that I imagined would visit the channel.
Here's the first video uploaded to Soothing Relaxation.
In 2016, Soothing Relaxation reached 100,000 subscribers.
In 2017, Soothing Relaxation got its own website (the one you're visiting now). The website is currently a store but I hope to offer more content and value here in the future.
In 2018, the channel reached 1,000,000 subscribers in March and it continues to grow. I find it hard to fathom how many people have somehow stumbled upon my music. However, I am deeply grateful.
It brings me so much joy that I am able to continue doing what I love. All of this would never have been possible without all of you. So thank you. Thank you so much.
I hope you enjoy the sheet music and the albums.
Again, thank you so much for everything. I am looking forward to seeing what we can accomplish together in the future.
