I had the honor of working with Rajendra Teredesai on his new album, Path of the Divine. Ideas for this album started to evolve in early 2009 and it took us more than a year to complete. Each track took two weeks to a month to finish. I can still remember my eyes heavy with fatigue while my heart continued toiling late through the night arranging these wonderful pieces. The magical impact of his flute had literally lifted my soul to a state of meditation while working. It was a tremendous experience, difficult to describe with words. My contribution on this album, as well as Divine Dimension (released in April of 2012), was to hone the arrangements to enhance Rajendra’s excellent flute style. The sounds I employed are atmospheric synths, Tibetan bells, nature sound ambience, chant voices, percussions and other effects. The marriage of eastern ethnic and western instrumentation harmonizes into a fresh and beautiful soundscape — true yin and yang at play. I seriously recommend Path of the Divine to those listeners who appreciate calm and serene music. This is a must have. It quiets the mind and thus it is perfect for meditation. I hope you will enjoy listening to it as much as I do.
