ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The Source:

These musical notes and movements often came to me with their corresponding energies as gentle visitors from another dimension. They have embraced me, taught me, and inspired me, and continue to do so. Their awakened consciousness has fully collaborated in the development of this music that intensely calls to be a felt experience and foster a new consciousness on the earth.

The Essence:

May you enjoy these musical creations. May they bless you with whatever your heart and soul are yearning for, as you actively engage with their consciousness and allow them to resonate with your unique essence at a cellular level. May we all walk together on this journey, sharing a vision for peace and love among all beings.

The Embodiment:

The listener is invited to become familiar with and experience this guided meditation prior to listening to the music in order to create an inner sacred space:

"As I enter the woods with a sense of awe and a heart overflowing, I feel warmly embraced by the essence of nature. Leaves crackling under my feet as I walk, birds singing, chipmunks scurrying about, and crickets sounding in the background all beckon my attention. As I arrive at my beloved stream, I send blessings to all the water that sustains the universe, and that sustains all of us. I climb a narrow path that leads to a boulder that has become my companion on these walks. Peering out at the trees, I experience myself as one of them, feeling my spine as a tree trunk, taking in the energy and sustenance of the glorious sun, being touched and moved by the gentle breezes. I hear an occasional twig falling in synchrony with the wind. As I relish in the pauses amongst the myriad of sounds, I become astutely aware that we are all one, cooperating in this magnificent symphony of life. I become conscious that these same elements of which I am in awe, exist also within my own body. As I feel into the connectedness between the inner and outer, my being opens wide to divine essence. I relax into this space, feeling a lightness, joy, gratitude, and love that my spirit has chosen this body at this time to be alive on earth. I luxuriate in this precious, sacred space, feeling my body as a magnet, connecting the heavens and the earth."

From MainlyPiano
Embodiment: Awakening to Essence Through Sound is a collection of eleven original piano solos by Sharon Freedman, an East Coast clinical psychologist as well as a pianist and composer. The pieces are grouped into three parts, “Awakening,” “Alchemy,” and “Heaven On Earth,” and each piece has the word “essence” or “essences” in its title. I think Dr. Freedman’s explanation of the source as well as of the purpose of this music is important: “These musical notes and movements often came to me with their corresponding energies as gentle visitors from another dimension. They have embraced me, taught me, and inspired me, and continue to do so. Their awakened consciousness has fully collaborated in the development of this music that intensely calls to be a felt experience and foster a new consciousness on the earth.” (quoted from the liner notes of the CD and Dr. Freedman’s website) A guided meditation is also included in the liner notes with the suggestion that the listener read it before listening to the music “in order to create an inner sacred space.” All of the pieces are interesting, but there seems to be very little dynamic change from loud to soft in the recording. This could be intentional, or it could be that the piano itself is not as expressive as it could be.

The six “essences” in Part 1 are “Creation,” “Earth,” “Water,” “Fire,” “Air” and “Ether.” “Essence of Creation” is one of my favorites. The rolling broken chords on the left hand support a melody that is beautiful and bittersweet. “Essence of Earth” is a bit on the dark, mysterious side - I like this one, too! “Essence of Water” has a gently flowing quality that sometimes sparkles like light dancing on a creek or river. The tempo of the piece varies from very slow and sparse to fairly lively, much like the changes in the rhythmic movement of water. “Essence of Ether” gently soothes and relaxes as it gracefully tells its segment of the story. Part 2 has two pieces: “Essences Merging,” which reminds me of David Lanz in a few places, and “Essence of Magic,” which is quite lively and dramatic. Part 3 features three shorter pieces: “Essence of Being,” “Essence of Joy,” and “Essence of Love.” “Being” is moderately lively with a strong melody while “Joy” is leisurely and relaxed. “Essence of Love” is slow, peaceful and easy-going, ending the album with a tender sigh.

Transcendence
This music transcends as it takes the listener to another realm and allows the mind to wander. It is a wonderfully centering experience that instantly calms the listener and opens up new worlds to explore. A perfect compliment to the first disc.
What a gift, keep sharing it!
