BINAURAL BEATS Vol 1 + 2
Binaural beats are an audio technology which entrain the brain into different states. I partnered with master human optimizer Aubrey Marcus and created two volumes of binaural beats. The effects of Vol 1 range from relaxation, deepening of meditative state, serotonin release and beyond, while Vol 2 is designed exclusively for focus and flow state. More info available at our binaural beat page.
This album travels to a place where avant-garde composition, free jazz drums, and eastern mysticism merge as one. Across the span of four long form pieces, the music shifts from lush string sections and gongs, to passionate free drumming and Rhodes piano, to the meditative drones of Hammond organ, tanpura, and harmonium. The Source is a deep and transformative work of psychedelic minimalism.
This LP cover is printed on uncoated paper stock. The first 100 copies were pressed on clear green vinyl. The rest of the edition is available on black vinyl. This album is also available as a CD digipak and on iTunes.
THE SEEKER AND THE HEALER
Collaboration with Duane Pitre. The album’s two sidelong pieces were developed out of multiple improvisational sessions governed by predetermined rules, sourced from piano, bowed guitar, harmonium, and 49-stringed drone harp (featured here on record for the first time).
