Meridian Meditations is an 8 piece suite of spiritual music without religious affiliations.
It reflects my belief that music and sound connects us to our spirit lives and can be a healing experience that brings us together, creates community and allows individual reflection. It is literally ‘food for the soul’.
With similar aims to sound healing, I think of the music as Jazz Therapy because of my musical background, the instruments played, the use of improvisation and the way the music is arranged as well as the intent that sits behind it.
The idea came to me of using the tuning forks that are aligned to our energy meridians much like the drones in Hindustani Classical Music. I have created a set of pieces where the musician can perform improvisations based on themes that are composed in response to the tuning forks. Different tuning forks can be heard resonating throughout each piece.
You will notice that the tuning forks don't resonate at equal temperament,( the standard tuning system of Western Music ). See how this feels to you.
The pieces cycle through the meridian system used in traditional Chinese medicine and kinesiology to balance our human energies. You may feel drawn to a particular piece to get in touch with the energies there.
May this music bring you peace and balance.

Besides being a musician, I'm also a published author.
I have written two books, now available as ebooks with audio, for young readers. They are , of course about music!
Harry the Honkerzoid and Planet of the Honkerzoids were created with my father as illustrator when my own kids were younger. They feature sound effects and wonderful humourous illustrations.
Written for all young or young at heart musicians.
