Good thing technology has picked up the slack. The sounds of nature can be created with computers, and often use the sounds of real animals. Some relaxation meditation music is nothing more than a microphone set out in a forest or beach area. The microphone catches the wind through the trees, or the waves breaking on the beach, and the composer cleans it up and makes it consistent and peaceful.
This relaxation has a powerful effect and allowing you to actually access your thoughts and focus clearly are primary benefits of meditation. Relaxation can be a lot of work, but not if you have the right tools!
While some meditation music is nothing more than a microphone set up outside, there is still quite a bit of musical talent that goes into this music creation.
Music reaches the soul, and this is true of meditation music as well. While grand orchestral music has a rich history to draw from, meditation music is still in its infancy. All that said, music is more than a set of mechanics and scientific principles. Mendoza: I worked in the studio part, editing, mixing, and mastering three discs in the compilation.
Before working with TaitasI recorded with Ivis while playing in La Grupa, a pop-rock-funk fusion band. We experimented more with Ecuadorian traditional music and I got hooked. Taitas was Sunquyman - Original Ecuador Artists - Indian Meditation Espiritual (CD) because in order to do the mixing I was listening to a song several times: again and again to every part of the song and every instrument to understand how it works in an ensemble. Kingman: First we went to Esmeraldas [a coastal province] to meet Segundo Nazareno — Don Naza — who is a year-old singer.
He lives in a very precarious situation in Esmeraldas. To be able to go to Esmeraldas to see how they play, interpret, and construct their own music; to see how they can improvise and play with structures that are already established [was eye-opening].
For example, nobody knows who composed [the traditional songs], but when everybody plays them, Sunquyman - Original Ecuador Artists - Indian Meditation Espiritual (CD) go into a kind Sunquyman - Original Ecuador Artists - Indian Meditation Espiritual (CD) trance Sunquyman - Original Ecuador Artists - Indian Meditation Espiritual (CD) anything can happen, where they can change the tune and the others know where they are going. That changed my life and what I wanted to do as an artist.
Mendoza: I was not involved in the traveling part of the project, which would have been amazing. There are young people who are innovating Afro music, each one with their own experimentation. Bomba is a mixture of African music with indigenous music of the Andean region, which is a very special and unique blend that cannot be found anywhere else on Sunquyman - Original Ecuador Artists - Indian Meditation Espiritual (CD) planet.
Bomba is a very strange phenomenon that occurred in this Afro-Andean place. Together they form a full band: one mouths bass, one melody, the other sings. Then, they form a melodic instrumental harmony, which is very rare. They also play with the traditional bomba and with a guy who plays the orange leaf [an actual leaf, which when rolled up can be played to sound like a kazoo].
To meet all these taitas and mamas of our traditional music — that has had the biggest impact on my musical development so far. Mendoza: With EVHA, we were already experimenting and tinkering with Ecuadorian music by mixing it with electronic production. When Taitas arrived, it was a more pure expression that helped us to understand what this kind of music can lead to. Hearing that traditional music generates a sensation inside me; when I compose music, I try to get as close to that sensation as possible.
