    This is an album of native Colorado wildflower songs. These songs were recorded in and near the mountains of central and southern Colorado. This album also contains songs of native birds and other native animals. As these are field recordings, they contain other ambient sounds of the environment. A Damanhur Music of the Plants Device, which incorporates the use of a Wheatstone Bridge, was used in the production of this album to transform the bio-electrical, or the life energy, signal in the plants, which was then converted into audible sound, using vintage technology of the device's original built in synthesizer.

ABOUT THIS CD
This is an album of native Colorado wildflower songs. These songs were recorded in and near
the mountains of central and southern Colorado. This album also contains songs of native
birds and other native animals. As these are field recordings, they contain other ambient
sounds of the environment. A Damanhur Music of the Plants Device, which incorporates the
use of a Wheatstone Bridge, was used in the production of this album to transform the bio-
electrical, or the life energy, signal in the plants, which was then converted into audible
sound, using vintage technology of the device’s original built-in synthesizer.

GUIDANCE FOR LISTENING TO THIS CD
Find a place to relax and listen to the patterns of sound from the wildflowers. As you are
listening to the sounds, listen to the silence as well. The wildflowers songs begin in the order
that they are listed in the credits. Perhaps you will get to know the wildflowers in a new way,
becoming aware of a different kind of sentience. Wildflowers are truly amazing to work with.
They have great beauty individually, and this beauty multiplies, not diminishes, when other
wildflowers are present. Due to the potentially powerful nature of this music, it is not
recommended to listen to this CD while driving or engaged in an activity that requires your
complete, focused attention.

FOR MORE INFORMATION
It is possible to communicate with Nature more than we know. In this endeavor, we are
evolving a new genre of music called Nature Fusion. For more information about the making
of this CD and the associated technology used, as well as the band The Sonic Apothecary,
