Listening Loop

1. Guitar Lullaby- Ricardo Cobo

This relaxing guitar CD is sophisticated and calming.  I often use it in movement warm-ups or as a recommendation for clients to unwind and prepare for rest/sleep.  It is one of my go-to CD’s when I need a whole CD of tranquil tracks to relax to myself.




2. Classic Williams: Romance of Guitar- John Williams

Gorgeous tracks with interesting arrangements of classical repertoire.  Very lulling, yet keeps the listener and brain in an exploratory state of relaxation.





3. Healing Crystal & Tibetan Bowls- Danny Becher

Contains 3 tracks that bring the listener to an altered state of consciousness.  Two tracks divide up the chakras; one contains tones and sounds for root to heart, the other for heart to crown.  “The Sacred Body” encompasses a variety of tones and tambours.  Great for meditation and deep sleep.




 4. Theta Waves Binaural Beats Isochronic Tones Brainwaive Entrainment- Jupiter Productions

 I have one of those brains that never stops, even in sleep I dream extensively and what feels like the whole night.  The different tracks on this CD have different tones and sound waves that entrain brainwaves.  It is one of the few CDs that actually slow down my active brain.




 5. Tune Your Brain with Mozart: Relax- Mozart

The beautiful and organizing music of Mozart is great for meditation, relaxation, or movement experiences.

Sade’s new album “Soldier of Love”

by Wade on February 11, 2010

I’ve been enjoying the new music of Sade from the new album, “Soldier of Love”.  Most all of the songs on the album are great.  There is one song that I just can’t stand to listen to though.  If you are a fan and bought the album, let’s see if it is the same song!  Send a comment back.  “The Safest Place” is just gorgeous with a liquid cello part throughout.


Listening Loop: “Gypsy Caprice”

January 31, 2010

I am enjoying “Gypsy Caprice” featuring Caroline Goulding.  It is a great song for expressive movement with adults and encourages movement through various levels: high, middle, and low.  Some creative dance words for this might include: step, turn, sprint, strut, drift, float, expand, twist, and deflate.

Listening Loop: “The Isle of the Dead”

January 30, 2010

I recommend listening to a recording of Rachmaninov’s “The Isle of the Dead” Op. 29.  It really makes me think of a scene from the  book “The Amber Spyglass” by Philip Pullman. Recommend on Facebook Share with Stumblers Tweet about it Subscribe to the comments on this post Tell a friend
