Thanks for the list of artists, imagemarie! I usually listen to a lot of soundtrack music and artist like Johann Johannsson, Max Richter, Nils Frahm, Hauschka. They incorporate a lot of electronica sounds into an already very minimal style of music. I personally don't really identify with the "drone" aspect, but I suppose it's an accurate description. I prefer "minimalist drift."

I know what you mean about breathing it in. It is definitely more of an experience, rather than just a listening. I started doing it when I tried for almost a whole day to create a mix of minimalist music to paint/work with. After becoming frustrated, I just decided to do it myself. I'm currently working on writing a piece about it that will accompany the release of some of those albums on an internet label. Essentially, I saw a gap in my experience that I wanted to fill as skillfully as possible. No, chasing, no striving, no yearning, etc.

Ramses B - Meaning of Life :sage:

Wherever he goes, there he is unafraid.. Wherever he sleeps, there he is unalarmed!
The nights and days does neither touch nor burn him. He sees nothing in this world
that is to be kept or lost.. Therefore his mind dwells in goodwill and gentle kindness
towards all beings until he falls asleep.

Bhikkhus, if you develop and make much this one thing,
it invariably leads to weariness, cessation, appeasement, realization and extinction.
What is it? It is recollecting the Enlightened One.
If this single thing is recollected and made much,
it invariably leads to weariness, cessation, appeasement, realization and extinction.

Greetings,



Metta,
Retro. :)
If you have asked me of the origination of unease, then I shall explain it to you in accordance with my understanding:
Whatever various forms of unease there are in the world, They originate founded in encumbering accumulation. (Pārāyanavagga)


Exalted in mind, just open and clearly aware, the recluse trained in the ways of the sages:
One who is such, calmed and ever mindful, He has no sorrows! -- Udana IV, 7

It seems I'm not done with music as yet. Here's something I discovered only just the other day. This song is hauntingly beautiful, I must admit.

The Strypes. These guys are 15-17 years old. Check it out, not too shabby. Original tune, too.
