ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Meditation & Tranquility is the 8th album of New Age Meditation music by Andrew Brel. Consistently, Brel's musical compositions provide a high quality relaxing listening experience, incorporating frequencies that repair, restore, relax and uplift. Music for meditation with intention.

"I highly recommend this CD to help with your meditation and deep sleep.”
Robert Lebby, MD, FAASM

"As a Sleep Professional, I know the importance of allowing one’s arousal level to gradually fall below the homeostatic sleep drive at sleep onset. Relaxation and a clear mind are imperative during sleep onset and help promote fulfilling, restorative sleep. The transition from an active mind to a clear mind is not always easy though. Treating insomnias and other sleep problems with behavioral means involves primarily teaching patients simply “how to relax”. Music remains one of the most effective and instinctual methods of relaxation. Without light, environmental sounds have always been the primary means by which we assess our environment, providing the cues by which we feel safe and secure, and which therefore allow us to relax. “Meditation and Tranquility” by Andrew Brel provides a wonderfully relaxing canvas upon which to drift to sleep. The deep subtle rhythms and tranquil melodic guitar will bring you feelings of inner peace and calm. I highly recommend this CD to help with your meditation and sound sleep. Enjoy!"

Release notes: Meditation & Tranquility by Andrew Brel

After three months of long days slaving away on my treadmill studio, my 8th album of Meditation music is ready for release.

Releasing music has changed a great deal since the first time I made a cassette and sold it over forty years ago now, with my garage band in Bryanston, called Hobo. (Featuring Dayne Marshall on drums). My first Bryanston ‘customers' included Craig De Villiers and Alastair Mackenzie, still friends to this day, so it must have had some value.

Since then I have released over 100 albums in the UK and been responsible for the manufacture of several million CD’s. For which I apologize to the environment.

This 2017 release is my first where there is no longer any hard copy. The entire process exists in the digital domain. It is either downloads on iTunes or CD Baby, or streaming via Spotify, Pandora and others.

While this is great news for the trees, the down side of existing solely in the digital world, means it is very easy to be missed in the flood of digital tripe being fed into the same music portals. To support my music means having to actually click a few buttons and I appreciate that this is not as convenient or familiar as just buying a CD and slotting it into a CD player.

What makes this release especially curious for me is that in writing the press release, having written release notes for hundreds of albums, my product here is essentially, free to buy.

The choice is with the consumer. Pay a small amount to own a copy via iTunes, or just have it for free on Spotify. In this the Times they have-a-changed. The challenge here is to sell you something you don’t have to pay for. Unless you want to that is. Which is also fine.

While the conversation among my generation of musicians who enjoyed the analogue era is mostly negative, focusing on the negatives such as awful payment from streaming media, like Spotify, my experience is different.

Getting onto a curated playlist on Spotify is the present day equivalent of a hit song on the radio. On the rare occasions I have had songs on Spotify playlist, (Mary’s Journey from my album Atlantis is one example) there is real reward and many reasons to be excited about the future of music.

The way we sell music has migrated unrecognizably since I first wrote article's for Music Maker publications in the 90’s when shock waves rocked the established music industry with the advent of digital recording replacing glorious analogue 2 inch machines and the swift and painful death of analogue recording became inevitable.

In those early days of digital opportunity we marketed new releases with self made html web pages, which was ground breaking. In fact the first CD sold in the UK on the internet was on my label Bridge Recordings, in 1991. (Ronnie Johnson, Give them enough Rope.)

Revisiting my tired web making skills now for this new release has been a humbling reminder of how far web technologies have migrated. (HTML was so easy and logical.) Linking to the various streaming services, the iTunes links with all the issues surrounding price, and even the basic design criteria for making a page look appropriate in a new 'virtual-market’ for a majority who are raised on Tyga and Dre and DJ’s whose names blend in my memory to one mush of Booty/Ho/Niggah/Bitch/pop-a-cap-in-yo-ass, made me sigh. It would take days for me to put all that together.

Especially as I don’t understand the music that accounts for 90% of current sales. I still stay in touch with popular music, listening through the top hundred every month in a process that usually requires 5 seconds per song. I don't know why they make it, why they buy it, or what the point of either really is. Kanye West is a best selling artist and my music is very clearly not going to compete for his market share and nor should it. The popular music market is not where music is marketed.

But if I have learned anything from tech, its that where there is a demand, someone has already written a brilliant app to do it for you. And so for $24 a year I had the most wonderful service of ‘Hearnow’ make up the sales page which will take you to either a free listen on Spotify or the opportunity to buy the album as a download from iTunes or CD Baby.

So please do buy the album if you can, or if not, listen to it for free on Spotify, and if you leave a review on either, my chances of being noticed by the most powerful people in Music today, the Spotify Playlist curators, goes up. And I will be able to buy you a drink next time we meet.

This album was real fun to make. It has a positive energy which has a special place at a time when the worlds vibration is being challenged by a new low. It is a studio written album in which the frequencies are as important as the choice of note. Tuning those frequencies into a positive, healing experience was my goal.

My first reviewer, the wonderful Doctor of Music, Berkeley educator and arranger of many number one hits, the estimable Richard Niles says:

"Andrew is a brilliant musician, writer and producer. This is a wonderful album". Richard Niles
