Lou Reed Download: Hudson River Wind Meditations

From Fauni Gena:

A practitioner of Yoga and Tai Chi for many years, Lou Reed brings his unique sensitivity and knowledge of a broad spectrum of music genres to provide a tranquil bed of soothing harmonics that open the heart and settle the mind. The pieces on this hypnotic album will wash away tension and negative energy with sparse instrumentation and subtle waves of electronic sound.

...Hudson River's two primary tracks consist of Doppler-effect sine waves, Tibetan-singing-bowl-like sounds, and deep subharmonics.

1 Move Your Heart 28:55
2 Find Your Note 31:35
3 Hudson River Wind (Blend the Ambiance) 1:51
4 Wind Coda 5:22

To download it, go to this site. I can't think of anything more relaxing than the winds off the Hudson River.

Hey Jason - are you aware that Lou Reed will be releasing Metal Machine Music Live performed by a German chamber music ensemble called Zeitkratzer? The following page includes info about the CD/DVD release. The album was recorded live at the Berlin Opera House in 2002. Velvet Undergrounds fans will love it.
