|What do we call this music? We love to "name" things, but it is usually
better not to. Sometimes it is best to just close our eyes and listen.
To attempt the naming, we can say this project is alternative
improvisational meditation featuring instruments known to induce
meditation. Didgeridoo, vocal chant, and drums from around the world.
To make our meditation authentic and process oriented, we deliberately
entered the studio with no rehearsal and only a few motifs to develop.
With an intention to make conversational music with human beings, the
three musicians performed together at the same time, knowing
that nothing would be overdubbed or edited.
We designed this music meditation as a process to rivet the meditator
into the Now and then further maximize personal freedom of expression.
With freedom in the Now we are free from conditions pulling us into the
past or future, such as commercial concerns about the project.
In other words, for this experience to be authentic, it was designed for us.
We did not target and preconceive a specific style that could be named
in the commercial market. We entered the studio as empty as possible.
