“Michael brings out the best in ‘meditative’ music to a more transient and accessible level. Creating a sublime experience for the listener quite often mistaken and misunderstood by. Here the the essence of the music is reinterpreted A ‘gateway’ to a ephemeral place and beyond.”Christopher EllisSupporter
This eight and a half-hour long album contains a carefully crafted mix of musical tones, binaural beats (for headphone listeners) tuned to aid sleep, long periods of silence or barely audible soundscapes to aid in the cycles of deep sleep
In the sounds of everyday life shines the luminous ground of infinite space. Deep in the stillness of silent becoming we can experience the interconnected web, present and waiting to be plucked.
An album of gently unfolding minimal waves of sounds. This simple suite contains over two hours of long-playing tracks that move slowly with many pauses in sound to make room for your own experience.
