"This is "eyes closed" music, as Coyote Oldman will fill in the picture for you. I recommend this music specifically for meditation (sitting or walking). It's less beneficial as ambient sound, as it is somewhat ponderous and slow, but at the same time, fairly demanding of your attention. It has, I'm sure as the composer intended, a tendency to take you away. And under the proper conditions, this can be a good thing.I like it, and play it often. But if I need to focus on something else, I probably will play something more like Evanson's "Desert Moon Song", which is more quitely melodious.All-in-all, a great piece of music, and a great buy."
A truly magical sonic masterpiece

"All of the praise this recording receives is appropriate and well-put. This is much more than a floaty, "new age" CD with loads of reverb and soothing sinewaves; it's a spiritual experience. If you're looking for something of the same order as Peter Gabriel's "Passion" but a bit more gentle, definitely give "Thunder Chord" a try. It will heal you."
Ambient music of the high plains and desert southwest.

"This mix of native flutes and electronic sounds fills the soul and brings to mind images of wide turquoise skys, red buttes, afternoon thunderstorms and the perfume of damp sagebrush. Long tones, both electronic and flute, echo back and forth, evoking the sensation of being in the wide canyons of the West. This is ambient music, so there aren't melodies per se but shifting tapestries of pitch; high and low, acoustic and analog, weaving in and out of each other. "Thunder" rumbles mysteriously in the title track, created by a sheet of titanium. This is an ideal CD for experiencing a mini-retreat, it's ethereal quality lifting you out of your everyday routine."
