In There's No Place Like Ohm Vol. 2, de Muynck further develops the idea of a sacred sound journey through the use of indigenous and acoustic world instruments. Each of de Muynck's ambient recordings are shamanic musical compositions featuring sounds from the natural world.
Featured instruments include Native American Flute, clarinet, didgeridoo, harmonica, Afrikan kora and Middle Eastern oud.
FROM THE LINER NOTES: Percussion instruments were intentionally not used in this composition, which aims instead to feature the rhythms and pulses of the natural world. Wind instruments made of wood were chosen because of their unique ability to evoke nature; the clarinet and Native American flute for their ability to mimic bird songs and their flight, the didgeridoo for its serpentine and earthy rhythm and tone. The Middle Eastern oud was chosen for its ability to conjure up images of landscape, sand and sun, and the African kora (a gourd) a stringed instrument, when played, gorgeously summons the elements and the feeling of sunlight and rain.
The Ohm drone present throughout this recording is a creative blending, complex and rich with overtones. A drone holds sacred ground throughout a musical journey. One can easily understand why it is an element frequently used in world music.
Marjorie de Muynck’s second sound healing recording in what has become her signature tuning of Ohm, known for its soothing and healing properties. The Ohm tone is based on the measured frequency of the elliptical orbit of the earth as it travels around the sun through four seasons. Resonating with this quintessential earth tone is grounding, centering and energizing; it creates a feeling of spaciousness in your body and psyche, releasing stress and tension.
Deeply relaxing, this music is ideal for meditation, yoga, Qi Gong, as well as for insomnia, pain management and stress reduction.
