Composed as background music for Reed's practicing of Tai Chi and meditation, the four instrumental electronic compositions are lush and tranquil, built on gently pulsing sounds and tones composed by Reed and recorded with assistance from acclaimed producer Hal Willner.
Meditation is the last thing you might associate with the so-called Godfather of Punk. Reed originally wrote the album of meditation music for his own use but then other people wanted copies. It's geared up to help to you to focus, he says. I call it centring. I use the music all the time. I leave it on all day because living in the city it has an intriguing ability to absorb the outside sound and kind of weave that into itself somehow. Review from The Times
