Chakra Suite by Steven Halpern
New Age composer Steven Halpern helped create modern meditation music when in 1975 he composed the chakra-based series of electric piano meditations, Spectrum Suite. For his 2001 release, Chakra Suite, Halpern remakes that album utilizing pure electric piano tones, chimes, synthesizer overtones, and, on one track, Tibetan singing bowls to create a pure sonic background for healing specified for each chakra. This is music that is felt directly in the body, as Halpern uses sonic waves to open and massage energy channels in the body, creating warm, flowing prana with whole notes that ring out and play off each other. Even listeners with no experience with chakras or meditation are likely to find themselves reacting to these strangely ambient, yet uncannily soothing, compositions.
