for many years i have explored the vibrational effects of tibetan singing bowls on the body, mind and soul, on states of consciousness, and have developed an application for deep relaxation, meditation and healing.

i started off my experiments by offering sonic sessions with tibetan bowls to yoga groups practicing methods of deep relaxation (specifically yoga nidra), because at the time i was (and still am today) interested in peoples reactions to nonverbally guided relaxation, where the vibrations of tibetan bowls become the tool to access alternative states of consciousness, leading to profound inner relaxation.

my experiences with sound massage, sound relaxation and innerSounds concerts, where i use just intonation instruments (tibetan bowls, gongs, tubular bells and the indian tanpura) has shown that the vibrational waves of these full harmonic spectrum instruments have a direct impact on muscular, emotional and mental tensions (by bypassing mental patterns), influencing deeper layers of the consciousness.

music and pure sound vibration are universal languages, creating an immediate impact on our unconscious mind. whereas verbally guided relaxation still leaves the possibility to control, to block and to deny access to intuitive levels of being.

spirits of shambhala is a unique musical and sonic experience, a practice of relaxation in which the sound of an arrangement of various tibetan bowls, gongs and tubular bells blend together in a harmonious soundscape and capture the energies of the 'hear' and now moment in space\time.
 
as opposed to what we usually listen to in music, there are no familiar melodic movements, there is no rhythmical definition, but there are sound waves and unexpected and surprising sound structures that are conducive to a dream state where the whole body, the bones, the pores of the skin, the inner organs and even more subtle stratas of our being participate.
 
spirits of shambhala symbolically and energetically moves through the five elements earth\water\fire\air\space carrying the listeners through multiple sonic layers and rhythmical spaces.

a slow continuous flow, the repetitive concentric circular movement when playing the bowls, minimal melodic transitions and the absence of recognizable musical patterns compell inner attention and presence.

in the silence of these sonic spaces, seeing sounds emerge, resounding hidden realms and reminding us of the interaction between body, mind and spirit, between worlds within and without.

spirits of shambhala can help trigger spiritual insights, activate healing of the bodymindsoul, or simply facilitate physical well being.
 
in the silence of these sonic spaces, seeing sounds emerge, resounding hidden realms and reminding us of the interaction between body, mind and spirit, between worlds within and without.

spirits of shambhala has been specifically recorded, mixed and mastered to maintain the original spacial sound quality and natural sonic spectrum of the tibetan bowls, gongs and tubular bells, to use the recordings for relaxation, meditation, visualisation, healing sessions and as a harmonizing soundscape.

for individual relaxation, healing and meditating sessions i suggest you use earphones to listen to spirits of shambhala. if listening in this way, take care to keep the sound volume down. when you first start listening to the cd, i advise you to experience one element at a time, taking the time to process the after experience, otherwise the overall effect might be overwhelming.

IMPORTANT
this cd should not be used by people with declared mental disturbances, as it may trigger off reactions they are unable to handle alone.
in case of doubt consult your health practitioner or yoga teacher.

the composer can not be held responsible for erroneous use of the cd.
