Michael Reiley – Samatha
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. The sound palette for Samatha is a simple Juno pad and RavVast hand pan (similar to the Hang Drum, a cross between a steel drum and a harp). This music was created for an online Yoga Class by Italian teacher Monica Gentile. It has a very live feel as it was recorded usually in one stream of conscious take as I played along to the yoga video class. It feels like you are in the room with me as I play. It obviously works well for your own practice, meditation, being, becoming and the gentle unfolding of life as it is.
