rain forest music
|this is the version of rain forect music that is on the lp. rain forest music, is set up with original recordings of east texas forest, rainfall, thunder sounds and bird sounds from the houston zoo mixed with electronic music. |
side two is ocean music. it was not on the lp and has four jazz/electronic pieces with synthesized ocean background, very sweet mix.:
- sunrise over the atlantic (also named sunrise over galveston bay)
- song of the dolphin (also names song of the whale)
- memories of atlantis (one of my favorites)
- moonrise over the atlantic (also called in movement around the rings of saturn)
approximately 22 min/side.
the instrumentation is a crumar traveler-1 organ and yairi accoustic guitar processed with an echo-lex ep-4, a dod phaser and a ross compressor recorded on a teac a-3340.
as with all versions of rain forest music, i orginally designed this music to enhance relaxation and meditation, as a background for massage or for counseling to help a person relax and open up faster. dr. robert pennington, phd., a clinical psychologist and friend, was very interested in the idea of using music in this way. so he used the music in his counseling sessions as background and noticed a marked difference in the quality of the patient's sessions. he continues to use this and similar music as a background for his counseling.
