“Tao and I have been friends for over 30 years. We first shared the stage when I asked her to be a part of my CD Release Show for my album “Healing Music for Massage, Meditation and Transformation” in 2009.
Tao was using my album daily in her Yoga classes, and had traveled to Sedona, Arizona to recite her poetry along with a live presentation of this music. Tao is known and loved for the exuberance she brings to all 99 years of her life, for her inspirational yoga workshops, and her infamous guided meditations, savasanas. Tao was publishing a book of poetry and she asked me to compose and produce the music. We began this project our birthdays ( a few days apart). We chose four pieces and began recording Tao’s beautiful words. Over the next months I composed and recorded music to underscore and highlight these meditations and monologues. We also agreed to include a few instrumental versions as well.
Tao’s book Reflections: The Yogic Journey of Life is indeed a celebration of her life, her Yoga, her spiritual connection, and her students. It has been an enlightening experience creating music to join with Tao’s magical words. I am so very grateful to Tao for including me on this project, and for being such a great supporter of my STILL, CHILL, THRILL music projects.
My approach to this album was to create a subtle musical atmosphere for Tao’s voice to float in. The sounds were to be in the background, and to be “felt” rather than “listened to.” My goal was to provide a dreamy and ethereal arena, inspiring each listener to find their own magical inner place. During the process I also began composing music specifically designed for the practice of yoga, which is now available at Healing Music Volume 2.”
