Tibetan Meditation

Originally conceived as a follow up to 'Tibetan Horn' (my 1993 collaboration with Stephen Cragg), and with the working title 'Visions of Tibet', this album underwent a radical transformation during production, emerging as a much more meditational sound while still retaining most of its original vision.

~ Original sleeve notes ~

A distant temple bell sounds, as the unmistakable tones of the ancient tradition of meditational chant resonate, creating an ambience of meditative calm.

Inspired by the very distinctive culture and music of Tibet, Phil Thornton has created an exceptional album that captures the very essence of Tibetan music. As you listen to the sounds of overtone chanting, Tibetan singing bowls, the Ragdung, cymbals, gongs, and the Tibetan thighbone, take time to reflect, explore and discover.
