I have long been a fan of the music of Gandalf, with memories of Dreamweaver and the ever beautiful Between Earth and Sky being my personal favorites. Now here he is back with a tremendous new release called All is One - One is All.
One World Music
This album comes at a very good time for me as I have not only gotten back into doing meditation, but I am also now practicing yoga. I’ve been doing both for the past month and already the health benefits are very evident. So naturally, seeing the arrival of this album by Sayama entitled Yoga Meditations, I was elated. I would at last have some relevant music to work with during my moments of tranquility and peace.
I have now listened to this album several times and it just keeps getting better and better. It has a beautiful layered feeling about it and one word I would be more than happy to attach to it as a label is, serene!
Chris Haugen has created something here that I can further describe as almost timeless; the opening piece is a fine example of this almost meditative slice of ambience called “Nautilus,” the perfect contemplative starting point of a truly excellent release.
