“Meditation can be defined as a practice where an individual uses a technique, such as focusing their mind on a particular object, thought or activity, to achieve a mentally clear and emotionally calm state.” – this is the definition of meditation as listed on Wikipedia.
We would probably all benefit from taking some time out of our busy days for some meditation and relaxation, wouldn’t we? I know that I certainly would – I’m making a note to try as I write this blog post! Like one’s surroundings and choice of location, music also plays an important role in helping one achieve a meditative state. That is no surprise, as music has an incredible way of influencing one’s mood and feelings.
Meditation music has evolved over the years with popular composers such as John Cage, Pauline Oliveros and Terry Riley, and more recently ambient experimentalists like Tony Scott, Craig Kupka and Laraaji. Electronic sounds play a big role in this genre – you’ll find many stunning tracks created 100% digitally. With that said, some composers prefer the use of traditional instruments which include the hammered dulcimer, wind chimes, pan flute, didgeridoo, kalimba, Tibetan singing bowls and the gong. You can see from this list that this type of music has influences from all over the world, making for a truly earthly experience. For more on these wonderful instruments and others, take some time and read this article.
While I specialise in other genres, I am happy to share some of my favourite royalty free music that is well suited for meditation and yoga. A big shout out to the composers for doing such an awesome job with these tracks. Have a listen and see what you think. You might just find the perfect fit for your video or vlog.
