This visionary music was originally composed and produced for the guided colour visualizations used on Janet Goodrich's Natural Vision Improvement cassettes. As I was extremely pleased with the original music, I rearranged it and released it as an instrumental album.
The music represents a journey through the rainbow colours with each colour relating to parts of the body, mind, spirit, the elements, the planets, and to the chakras (psychic nerve centres of the body).
The musical feel, key, mode, tempo and time signature are expressions of all of these facets of each colour and were not decided upon prior to composing but evolved out of the creative process.
Each colour is represented by two musical sections which are not always clearly defined.
The first section is a journey through the different aspects of the colour. It is a textural, moody and volatile expression of the range of the colour and affects the listener on many levels.
The second section is a more solid musical piece, which expresses the most salient aspect of that colour.
To obtain the optimum from this production I recommend using a good set of headphones,or positioning yourself between the speakers to obtain balanced stereo as the music stimulates left and right hemispheres with varying intensity.Close your eyes,take a deep breath and relax. The music will trnsport you into your visual dreaming and beyond.
