Released 2010
Leela Music, BMI
"Paradise Lost" solemnly commemorates the displacement of the Native American peoples at the hands of the "white man" in three acts, or movements: paradise, in the "before days"; the coming of the white man, and the resulting conflict; and requiem.
NOTES
Paradise Lost solemnly commemorates the displacement of the Native American peoples at the hands of the "white man" (primarily of European descent).

The first section portrays the Land as the Native Americans enjoyed it for generations, and it celebrates Paradise in all its diverse splendor—a dawn on the prairie, a look at the land through the eyes and heart of a Guardian of the Plains, the heartbeat of the forest, the soaring vantage point …

Released 2009
Leela Music
ZMR Music Award Winner, The Promise follows Everyman's Journey from the hustle and bustle of daily living to the anticipation and promise of the great beyond. Fourteen original compositions cover the gamut of yang and yin, and the transition from life to Life.
NOTES
Everyman's Journey

Everyman awakens to a "Bright New Day", full of promise and anticipation. Embracing the hustle and bustle of "Daily Living" (on the job, to and from school, at home), Everyman engages life with the linear thinking and "Angular Reasoning" required to function in this Manifest Domain.

Everything changes "When Love Comes Near", beckoning Everyman back to the Unmanifest reality. And "Late One Night", Everyman begins the transition, "Facing the Great Unknown", with the …

NOTES
After a hiatus of about 25 years (I changed careers there for a while), I returned to my bliss a little over a year ago and started blowing the dust off my old studio gear and adding some new equipment. I began summoning the Muse back into my life, spent some time in meditation, and some more time under headphones. The result of that process is this album. I hope you enjoy it.

Apparently, the reviewers …

Journey Within

by Michael Stribling

Released 2006
Released 2006
This long meditative piece has been used in a variety of settings: waiting rooms, massage therapy, yoga, hypnosis, etc. It's especially nice to put this on before you go to sleep at night
NOTES
I originally wrote this meditative piece in 1988 as my very first MIDI tune in my very first MIDI studio. Heck, I didn't even have a keyboard at that time, so I wrote this composition completely out of my head. At first, I used it in my work with mental health clients for hypnosis, meditation, etc. From there, it developed from a 15-minute piece to an hour-long experience. From the feedback I've received over the years, …
