Composer, producer, and multi-instrumentalist Phil Thornton has collaborated with Sinead O'Connor, Hossam Ramzy, Talking Heads, Die Laughing, and the English psychedelic band Mandragon. His solo experiments have encompassed electronica, tribal fusion, Celtic music, and New Age ambience, with a particular attention to cross-genre exploration, the juxtaposition of unusual instruments, and high production values. TIBETAN MEDITATION is a comparatively low-key work for Thornton, concentrating, as the title indicates, on creating a calming sound-space conducive to sustained meditation. Fans of Thornton's work will recognize his deliberate use of space and the meticulous balance of musical elements on this series of soothing compositions that evoke the soul-stirring, cloud-swept peaks of the Himalayas.
