scots "pug" ceilings by adding soil or ashes above them for soundproofing.
you might also consider poly film greenhouse duct containing 2" of water over
a plywood ceiling. this would allow storing coolth in summertime or warmth
in wintertime by ventilation with outdoor air that's cooler or warmer than
indoor air. summer is easier, with less chance of condensation.
