Quote by Jean Houston

Next is now, world music as the single most potent force in the culture of fusion ... World music-makers are like shamans, carrying us on magic carpets of riffs and melodies through states of consciousness that spin us out of time to lands not yet invented but glimpsed on the aural horizon ... And so we see that music brings us, in the jumping of our cells, from what is past to what is trying to become the future. lt expresses and fulfills our need to hear the spirit in the dark.
(Jean Houston in Jump Time, Sentient Publ. 2004)

Inner Peace CD - Music for Meditation, Yoga and Relaxation

Various Artists

Serene sounds for meditation music, yoga and relaxation with shakuhachi flute, celestial harp, grand piano, clarinet and guitar. A gentle melodic journey from the temporal world into the timeless realm of dreams, emanating from matter, floating towards infinity, tasting the silence between the sounds. Warm and vibrant East and West harmonies resonate a deep peace, a voyage into the boundless ocean of self.

Inner Peace reviewed by Ben Ohmart - MUSIC DISH

To call this New Age really isn't descriptive or fair. This is even more gentle than new age. It is relaxing. And I don't mean boring. Alain Baraige's easy solo piano piece 'Lumiere L'apres' is an incredibly receptive healing vehicle that cleanses as it lightly brushes away the cobwebs and stress that all too quickly mounts on the shoulders and the furrow of the brow. Consider it a soft paint brush going over the remnants of a bygone era, as the archeologist removes all the crud to get at the ancient beauty.

The cd of various but simple instrumentation is a sampler of the vast and varied world and new age elements you have to pick from at www.musicalacarte.net, a new online animal that allows you to listen to a moment of the music, then pick it for Your cd. No more hoping for the best. Now you can put together your Own Best Of album whenever you log in. An anti-annoying tool that hopefully all labels will come to use in time.

Personally, I could listen to spiritualism like this all day, all days (if I didn't have so much alt-rock to wade through) because Peace is a captivating feeling. When you are at Inner Peace, there is a Force (and I do mean Star Wars) that surrounds and binds you to the rest of the Real world. Nature through music through nature. The cycle is endless, so why shouldn't we let go, trust in the sounds that find us, and latch onto them? With this cd, and others I've heard from this new label, the answer is obvious.
