Alluring and suggestive, serene and stimulating, intimate and devout, The Disciple's Meditation is beautiful healing music born from Mark's reverent playing of the divine instrument -- the Bansuri flute. With melodic variations on traditional Indian ragas and entrancing percussive grooves, the five sensuous tracks elevate the body, mind and spirit.
Sixty-seven minutes of music for deep meditation, yoga practice, spiritual and heart-centered disciplines.
Evocative whispers fill the ears, sweet sound floats through the air to be breathed in as much as heard. The music's calming nature is a balm from an eternal source. Breathe deeper and each breath brings a greater sense of awareness. Surrender to the sound as the tabla beats move you. The mantra fills the body, breathing is deep and circular, time becomes elastic; become one with the sound.
With over 19 albums in collaboration with Steve Roach, Byron Metcalf, Loren Nerell, and Andres Condon, Mark has developed a wide body of diverse recorded work.
CD in 4-panel digipak.
Mark Seelig took up the bansuri (the bamboo flute used in Indian classical music) in middle age, as part of an ongoing general spiritual and psychological quest. He is now three albums into a series of releases exploring the flute as 'the expression of spirit.' It would be easy to dismiss this as dilletantish dabbling, but while neither Seelig nor tabla player Vito Gregoli demonstrates the breathtaking virtuosity of India's finest classical musicians, they do show genuine respect for the ragas on which their musical meditations are based, and this music is much more suited to meditation and/or yoga practice than genuine classical music would be, with its focus on exciting thematic development and technical prowess. Any library with a collecting interest in East-West cultural fusion would do well to consider adding this release (and its predecessors in the Disciple series).
