- I have no formal knowledge of meditation, yoga, or relaxation. But I do know that this piece speaks to me with those terms in mind. - Today is a big departure from the six previous journeys, it is a repetitive loop of two urban sounds that I recorded and assembled together with voice tones that answer to the sonic vibration. - As esoteric as this may sound, there is a beauty in the mechanical rawness. - The story is; I was walking by a Con Edison maintenance truck doing work on the street with tools feeding into a manhole cover. The truck was making a blaring noise, something that you would cringe at and hastily walk away from. I started to unconsciously hum a complimentary tone to the sound of the machine. That was my queue to record some of this “blaring loud noise”. I continued to hum and chant the tone for the rest of the afternoon. Finding a relaxing spirit at the root of an obnoxiously loud industrial sound, I was inspired to put this simple mix together and test it in my everyday life. - With the pattering of rain on concrete and the street machine layered beneath a repeating vocal hum, I have been using this piece for both still and moving meditation for the last month. The redundancy does not grow old, it has become a retreat synonymous with relaxation. - Hint; I tend to focus on the tone of the industrial sound, seeking to sync its sonic vibration with that of my body’s. - This chant is highly personal to me. I hope it inspires someone to find peacefulness in mundane or even annoying common sounds. - Contact: rob@all-oneuniverse.com
