Musical Energy: Flowing, Introspective, Ambient, Continuous

My first CD, this was recorded live during a special power yoga session at Hilltop Yoga in Lansing, Michigan in May of 2009. The yoga class was taught by Hilaire Lockwood - thank you! I provided the musical soundscape for the class. This was a single take, non-stop. Nothing was pre-recorded - every sound you hear was created with one violin, live, on the spot.

I was never sure how I would create my first CD, since the concept of trying to create magic in a stale recording studio with no audience seemed artificial to me. Yet I had so much music to share! This was one of the first gigs where I happened to record it, and I felt such wonderful energy flowing throughout. When I clicked to stop the recording at the end of the yoga session, it was perfect to fit on a standard CD!

Yoga has helped me in so many ways, and I was especially inspired when I realized that I could help in the healing of others. This was a milestone in my path, and something I continue to focus on today.

COSM was inspired by the Chapel of Sacred Mirrors – artwork by Alex Grey. A Prayer for the Soul of Layla was inspired by bellydancers dancing to the music of Jamshied Sharifi. Secret Agent was inspired by the iTunes radio station of the same name. Other songs were inspired by love, nature, the human spirit and the cosmos.
