ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Vive's music was born out of a desire to hear beautiful relaxing music that speaks to the modern ear. As a reviewer from Spirituality and Health magazine put it, "The luscious sounds and hauntingly sung mantras of Vive fill body, mind and spirit with light that remains long after the music has stopped."

Gabriel Mann and Tanya Witman met in an a cappella group at the University of Pennsylvania. During a reunion, they decided to team up on a project to create really good music for massage, yoga and meditation. Gabriel Mann is a multifaceted musician, composer and songwriter who has been involved in countless music and entertainment endeavors including providing scores for Modern Family, Arrested Development, Trophy Wife and Rectify. Tanya Witman currently resides in Tucson, Arizona and is pursuing a career in Health Psychology.

Making this music was simple, organic and magical, much like the album itself.

Review excerpt from Music and Media Focus
Ca Sarvetaratra, which means “and everything else, is the latest release from the group Vive. The music exists at the intersection of ancient spirituality and modern technology, making for a divinely blissful yet energizing listening experience. Vive combines the considerable talents of vocalist/ massage therapist/ yoga instructor Tanya Witman and composer/ songwriter Gabriel Mann, who has extensive credentials in the music and entertainment industry. The Vive Music Project is characterized as: “Tanya’s brainchild, while Gabriel is the mad scientist behind the knobs.”

The music is based on mantras or sacred phrases and kirtan or devotional chanting. Interestingly, unlike a lot of music in this genre, which features traditional Indian instruments like sitar, tamboura, and tabla drums, the sound here is strictly contemporary Western electronic. A down-tempo drum groove sets the pace, layered with percolating sequencers, synthesizers, electric piano, and more. When Tanya’s chanted vocals come in, they offer a more organic element to the mix. Although again, unlike some music in this genre, her voice is treated with effects like reverb and delay, which allow the syllables to trail off at the end of a phrase. It’s a very cool ethereal addition and brings these ancient chants more effectively into a modern ambient context.

I have had the opportunity to hear a number of albums that feature mantra chanting and devotional singing in a contemporary context, but this new release by Vive has to be one of my favorites. The angelic tone and spiritual sincerity of Tanya’s voice lifts this recording to lofty heights. I also can’t say enough about the exquisitely crafted musical soundscapes Gabriel has created to accompany the vocals. Each one is unique and could actually stand alone as an instrumental ambient recording in itself. I can easily see why he is in such great demand in the music industry. The alchemical combination of these two extremely talented artists makes Vive a group I know we’ll be hearing more about in the future.
