"If there was a way to dive to the deepest part of the ocean and sink into deep peace this would be the music you would hear while floating in tranquility. I've also imagined myself floating out in the middle of the ocean looking up at the night sky while immersing myself in sound.
The music on this album is completely original and has a rhythm all of its own. It is as if Donald Walters has conjured up a relaxation spell. This is not only a massage for the mind, it is an escape in sound. Donald Walters has composed over 400 pieces of music and these melodies are especially lyrical and uplifting. David Miller is also a renowned arranger and orchestrator.
Each note seems to bring a new clarity and peace. Slowly you escape from your "hyper-speed" life into a place of compete calm. Suddenly nothing really seems that important, you stop worrying and you can finally let go of all that stress. You start breathing more deeply and if you play this at night it will help you fall into a state of complete relaxation and then eventually deep sleep.
I have found this particular album to be especially emotionally healing. I feel cradled in sound as I drift off to sleep. You may also want to use this music while giving or receiving a massage, while reading or when you want to create your own home spa.
You will also be inspired to play "Relax: Meditations for Piano" after work or when you just need a break from stress.
Music to quiet the mind. This CD will allow you to set sail for your own tranquil island of peace.
Additional Selections for Relaxation:
Relax: Meditations for Flute and Cello, Mystic Harp 2, Secrets of Love, Surrender: Mystical Music for Yoga and Himalayan Nights.
