SEVEN LEVELS OF MAN SIDE 1 clip
SEVEN LEVELS OF MAN SIDE 2 clip
continuing our exploration of the great unity records new age label, this is an amazing journey conjured up by steve mclinn's ojas project from oklahoma city OK. im sure he's THE pioneer of oklahoma new age music. this great LP takes us on 2 side long rides through harp, guitars, vocals, gongs, and all manner of wonderful synthesizers. its a beautiful new age trip from beginning to end, with some of the breezy joy as Deuter's 'Celebration' album. he doesnt always make all of the right moves but the spirit is there for sure, let it flow and enjoy!
"sound is the force which holds the physical octave. it is a doorway through which the consciousness might flow into new dimensions of reality."
also please visit the ojas / steve mclinn website here.
mr. mclinn recently had a fire that destroyed his entire studio along with most of his gear and recordings, so buy some stuff from his website if you can.

HENRY WOLFF & NANCY HENNINGS - TIBETAN BELLS II
pacific arts records & tapes
starting with volume 2 of this all metallic resonances record. not unlike the frank perry gems we've posted here earlier, wolff & hennings concoct lovely meditative soundscapes from all manner of bells gongs chimes tibetan bowls, etc etc. one of the pieces is even composed and performed by HAMZA EL DIN!!!! there must be a grateful dead connection here, i think mickey hart mustve been involved somehow....anyhow, enjoy these tones and zones. volume 1 and 3 to follow!
"the whole of 'journey to the end' may be thought of as comprising either a single instant of time, or the timeless reach of an eternity."
"'the endless journey' consists of three major phases. each traces a stage in the crystalline evolution of SPIRIT, whose reisdual body is now shorn off, as it is released from the last vestiges of terrestrial attachment. with leaving the body, and ascending through astral plane, spirit, lightening, is progressively stripped of all lingering mortal encumberances. then at the last, in its transcendent aspect of pure, abstract vibration, spirit sets out on its final journey through the void, across the vast of the universe."

SWAMI KRIYA RAMANANDA - SONG OF THE GOLDEN LOTUS
second installment for swami kriya ramananda, this album is not as good as 'hymn to a new age' but it continues in the flute zones of the larkin post below. some flute some cello some electronics. nice pleasant sounds for your chakras. enjoy! (if anyone knows of other albums by s.k.r., please do let me know!)
"song of the golden lotus is the most unique of the new age music yet to emerge from the west. through several years of meditation and study, ramananda has transformed the western musical system to relate to mantric sound energy potentials. thus instead of composing melodies and harmonies in the conventional sense, ramananda composes enrapturing structures of repolarizing sound energies, designed to help neutralize some of the stress and strain of modern living; and on a deep level to internalize, uplift and inspire. this album was created as an inspirational adjunct for those on the path. it is devotional music in essence and its energies are harmonious with any spiritually ascending system.
at the conclusion of the music, remain quiet for a few moments."

LARKIN - O'CEAN
wind sung sounds
lovely flute musings from larkin. we get 2 side long pieces here.
side A 'Emergence' has halpern-esque flute noodlings over a wonderful bed of ocean / whale sounds + a sparse synth drone by michael stearns. "The image is a butterfly awakening from the cocoon, it sits while the fluid energy fills its being from the inside out. An awareness of new form and movement emerges."
side B 'Communitizing' is a purely solo flute exploration. "The image is a butterfly in flight."
"The motivation for this recording is the light source from which all my music emanates - to this source I am eternally grateful."
