about

My personal experience with music therapy/healing goes deep. my
sister-in-law has M.S. and went into a coma back in 2000 for 2
months...she remained in hospital for almost one year before she was well enough to return home.

I recorded an hour long piece that was primarily made up of sounds out of my garden in Florida...bugs/ a water fountain /me walking down the gravel pathway thunder/ rain/birds combined with, drones and looped chords and drone melody. I also recorded all the sounds with binaural mics. so she would experience the movement of walking and turning around...stooping down to smell flowers/looking up to hear the birds/going under shelter when it rained feeling a part of the world and being surrounded and held.

I sent it back to Australia and the doctors there put it on repeat, what
else could they do, it was noninvasive.

9 years later she is still alive which is a miracle in itself (she can
only move one hand these days). I mentioned to her about the music I did for her recently. And she replied..."what music?". I told her the story and she said she didn't know anything about it...noone mentioned it. I looked through their cd collection and found it, and played it to her.

She immediately burst into tears and said..."I know this music...these
are the sounds that i heard once and remembered." Joan was
speechless..it was like finding a lost friend again a time remembered.

Who knows if the music helped/what it did...one thing I do know...if I
was left in a coma I would surely be wanting to listen to sounds than a
silent aloneness.

"Beginnings" was recorded in Zephyrhills, Florida in 2000
