Chi - A Meditational Journey
"Chi – A Meditational Journey". (67:08). Artist: Peter Morley. Label: Zen Music / Energi Music. Released: November 12, 2007.
Ch'i, or qi, is the Chinese word used to describe "the natural energy of the Universe" (also known as "Prana" in Sanskrit, as used in Indian Yogic and Ayurvedic philosophy). Many ancient wisdom cultures believe in the concept that chi (or prana) permeates everything, including the human body, and that proper attention to chi is necessary to restore and maintain equilibrium and harmony.
This album-length version of "Chi" has been specifically designed for deep meditation practice that cultivates chi - using meditation music cycles and mantra rhythms.
Keyboards, Voice, Synth Percussion, Synth Wind FX, Tubular Bells, Asian Prayer Bells, Zen Gongs. A careful mix of Asian Prayer Bells and Gongs, and sparse synthesized percussive notation in the Asian tradition, combine with breath flutes and floating voice shapes to create a constant rhythm pattern similar to yogic breathing techniques for meditation. The composer, Peter Morley, creates a soundscape that reflects the beautiful and mystical ancient sounds and music of Asia, measuring its ‘beat’ to a slow, deep breath-cycle of meditation.
Over an hour of relaxing, uninterrupted music, the deeply transcendental mantra quality of "Chi" makes it ideal for meditation, relaxation, yoga, tai chi, sleep therapy, and other healing arts therapies, and everyday enjoyment.
Please Note: It is recommended that headphones or earbuds be used when listening to this album, in order to achieve the highest sound quality and enjoy the subtle tonal fidelity of the natural environment.
