Matthew Barlow – Sound Meditations

[su_youtube url=””]
A word on my process and overall concept when I was doing these “sound meditations”: Each one generally only had one track, and everything was improvised live and recorded in one take with no overdubs. Once the track was exported and posted online, the original master was deleted. This method was a practice of “calm abiding” with sound in the present moment, allowing what would arise to come and go. It wasn’t about creating a piece of music but rather about practicing a particular state of mind. It was one of my most freeing and rewarding experiences in making music, and I’m honored that it has been enjoyed by so many. This one is dedicated to the present moment and to the peace that can be found there provided we just listen.

Very special thanks to Sounds of the Dawn, Steve Targo, and Kyle Landstra – without your inspiration, this music would not be possible.

“The heart surrenders everything to the present moment. The mind judges and holds back.” – Ram Dass

Guidance #3


Sign Libra – Closer To The Equator

This concept EP was written specially for a contemporary one-act ballet “Closer to the Equator” (choreography by Milana Komarova) at the Latvian National Opera in Riga, Latvia. The plot is based on BBC nature documentaries about survival fight and unparelleled diversity of wildlife in the tropical rainforest during the day. Working on every track, were taken into account and carefully observed character, form, behavior and actions of an animal or a plant, endowing each character and its actions with a certain timbre, harmony, rhythm, tempo, and a symbolic motif or a vocal part.
