Review

Musical improvisations to engage the body, mind and spirit, played on Celtic harp and "hang" (a steel hand drum which is as melodic as it is percussive) This joyful, spontaneous music is designed to stimulate states of bliss and promote the movement of energy, the releasing of emotional and spiritual blocks and the integration of higher vibrational states into everyday life. It is perfect for energy work, massage, trance dancing, self healing work, and creating sacred space. It is a multidimensional approach to the whole human system: The rich and coherent harmonic content of the pairing of the two principal instruments is stimulating and balancing to the glandular and the parasympathetic nervous systems. This documented effect has been observed in Benedictine and Tibetan Monks who chant and in many cultures where bells and gongs are commonly used to induce altered states of consciousness. Within the shimmering improvisations, there is a satisfying completeness to the harmonic movements, which promotes coherent, balanced brainwave activity, shown to affect learning, intellectual performance, inspiration, and leaps of cognition, well documented as the "Mozart Effect". The simple rhythmic patterns that are used in many of the pieces may also stimulate the brain in the manner of a Shaman's drum, emphasizing the slower, deeper brainwaves and providing a gateway to altered states of consciousness which reportedly allow for healing of self and others. David and Christopher's masterful and tastefully exuberant music creates an infectious sense of joy and wellbeing which is a precious comodity in today's world ... an oasis of blissfull sound whenever it is needed. Creating IN THE MOMENT: IN THE MOMENT is based on a series of free-form improvisations, occurring over a four day period in September, 2004, between David Michael and Christopher of the Wolves. While visiting David's home, he acquired a new instrument: a new kind of drum that he had first seen and played in England only two weeks before. The drum is made in Switzerland and known as a "hang" (a steel hand drum shaped like a flying saucer). No sooner had Christopher removed the hang from the box and started playing it, David became enraptured by the sound. Discovering that the hang's pentatonic scale and clear tones interfaced beautifully with the Celtic harp, the two musicians began to jam. Inspired by the music, Christopher quickly phoned the airline to postpone his departure to Thailand for a few days. During those days, the duo excitedly recorded hours of their improvisations, also inviting the participation of guitarist Joe Breskin and flutist Randy Mead. David then produced the CD by sifting through the many hours of recordings to extract and polish the gems which are presented here.
