Passive and active meditation music
Basically, meditation music can be divided into active and passive. In active meditation music, movement and dynamics also play a role. The music is usually a little faster and more dynamic, especially through the use of rhythm instruments such as drums and sound woods. Active meditation music supports movement and breathing.
The Passive Meditation Music is much calmer and slower. The meditation is performed in a resting position and usually proceeds silently. Passive meditation music is not infrequently accompanied by nature sounds such as birds chirping and water splashing. The music contains little dynamics and is very spherical in design.
Should I meditate with or without music?
This is primarily a matter of personal taste. Meditation generally works without music in the background.
With music, it can be easier to "get into" a meditation and let yourself fall. The best thing is to just try it out for yourself.
