Sounding in Sedona

My recent trip to the mystical red rocks of Sedona, Arizona gave me the courage to experiment with recording my intuitive music for the first time.  The Airport Mesa Vortex was where I filmed this. In my backpack I carried my little G minor pentatonic kalimba and I just set my camera down on the rock beside me and hoped for the best. I had never tried this before, so I was pleased that the sound pickup was fairly good on my little Canon, until joined by a helicopter. This one particular trail, Overlook Point, about 4,600ft is reserved for meditation. Hikers are asked to be cognizant of that and keep quiet. I had a good 15 minutes by myself before I was joined by others. People come from all over the world to experience the subtle energy of these red rock vortexes, swirling centres of energy emanating from the surface of the earth. This energy resonates with and strengthens the inner being and is a very uplifting experience. To me this is one of the thin places. A place where Spirit touches soul. I hope that my soulful musical meditation conveys just a little of that. The ‘words’ I sing are a type of vocalise, invented words, or vocables in the spirit of Jonathan Elias’ The Prayer Cycle, or Karl Jenkins Adiemus: Songs of Sanctuary.
