ABOUT THIS CD
This is an single off of the CD "Spreading Like Wildflowers", which is an album of native Colorado wildflower songs. These songs were recorded in and near the mountains of central and southern Colorado. This single features Heartleaf Arnica (Arnica cordifolia), Dwarf, or Bush, Sunflower (Helianthus pumilus), and Western Tanager (Piranga ludoviciana).
As these are field recordings, they contain other ambient sounds of the environment, including animals, the elements, as well as others. 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.
