Since Spire announced its new relationship with Mouser Electronics earlier this year, we’ve been having a great time working on its thought leadership campaign, Empowering Innovation Together. The first two topics have launched, Green Energy Storage Systems and Matter, with the third coming soon! There’s a lot of excitement at Spire for the work we’re creating and producing on Mouser’s behalf.

Account Director Katie Olivier had the bandwidth to take a little time from her electrical engineering client and conduct some high-tech tuneage inspired by Mouser. It’s a battery of dialed-down ditties that will charge your spirits while relaxing you from any current state of chaos in your life.

So, short-circuit stress by amplifying our latest Spire on Spotify playlist from Katie called Vol. 43: Engineering Relaxation.

Katie, what is the name of your album?

I’ve named it Engineering Relaxation after Mouser’s electrical and software engineering clientele.

How would you describe this mix?

It’s lo-fi, which is melodic, stripped-back music that you can easily work to, and it won’t disrupt your thoughts or work process. This mix is meant to be soothing background music that can calm your mind for improved focus.

What was the inspiration behind it?

Many Mouser employees and their customers are engineers. Typically, if engineers listen to music, they prefer something that is low-key and not distracting. Lo-fi beats allow for some background “noise” without being distracting or disruptive to software engineers while they code or hardware engineers while they design.

What makes your playlist unique?

Most of our playlists are literal interpretations of our clients. I wanted something Mouser engineers would listen to while working and designing or perhaps just needing a moment to relax and breathe before diving into a project or before a big presentation.

What is your favorite song, and why?

I like many of them, but keeping with the theme of this playlist, “Equation of Time,” with its soulful, acoustic guitar rhythms, is a great tune.

If your playlist was a brand, what would it be and why?

It would be It’s an amazing app that helps people relax, reduces stress and anxiety, and improves focus.

Any specific memory that comes to mind when you listen?

There’s no specific memory, but overall, this playlist evokes calm feelings, like reading a good book on a rainy day or a relaxing on a sunny day at the beach.

You sparked a calmer mood, Katie, and we’re amped up for your next playlist. Stay tuned to the Spire Blog and Spotify Channel for the release of our next electric album.
