CD "Qigong Dancing" by Steve Schroyder & Alienvoices
incl. "Amba" performed by Irina Mikhailova
Ambient, Downbeat, PsyTrance, Tribal and Overtone Singing
Steve Schroyder & Alienvoives combining ambient wide landscapes and pumping dance beats. Their sound is a singularity in the cosmos of music. The multilayered voices technique of overtone- and throatsinging let us dive deep into the ancient tunes of our heritage, while our feets are stomping to the tribal drums.
Certain sounds touch us more than others. The secret of these has been known by people since ancient times. Western church bells, Indian folk music and the ancient mantra “Om” are not the only things that are tuned according to these ancient tones. Hans Cousto’s discovery of the planetary frequencies unveiled the universal meaning of the Cosmic Octaves as being «an outer expression of inner connections».
The force that is unfurled by music according to the theory of universal harmony will be made felt by «Qigong Dancing». The music is the accompaniment to a journey within. Ancient tones rise as musical archetypes in resonance with an earlier embodiment of ourselves, they create deep moods, and they touch us, deeply penetrating the facade of everyday life. The songs are an invitation to feel at one with the rhythm of the earth, to sense pulsating vitality with the sun, to go into battle with Mars and to feel the force of the moon.
In «Qigong Dancing», modern digital music meets ancient throat and overtone singing. The mix of complex ambient layers, driving beats and ethnic singing leaves every attempt to assign a genre to this music lost. The journey is what matters.
