These Cymbal Reflections recordings are meditation & relaxation music generated by a heavy cymbal that I played with my hands. No over dubbing, effects or electronic sounds are used, the purpose of which, is to allow the authentic tones of the metals in the cymbal to ring out with all their naturally occurring harmonics and overtones. These recordings are my contribution to assist relaxation, and the experience of inner peace. The pulsing drone of the cymbal offers a foundation to relax into while the spacious higher tones and percussive minuets encourage inner exploration while providing an experience of reflection and peaceful insight
