For your listening and meditation pleasure -- rich tapestries of sound that layer sacred singing bowls, didgeridoo, vocals, throat singing, percussion, drones, woodwinds...

Floating flute and classical guitar -- Echoes of Water will soothe your soul -- perfect for meditation or yoga, car trips, children's bedtimes. Bring some bliss into your ears!

My first Echoes Series Collaboration, I invited Eric into the FTM Studio in Lakewood, CO.

We didn't have much framework set in place except for some modalities and an idea of floating from six/eight to no rhythm. What a wonderful afternoon we had before we both had to scurry off to the rest of our scheduled day. We hope you'll feel the same sense of respite when you take in these lush sound tapestries that soared out of us that day. .
