ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Gabriele Morgan has a rich history in the Los Angeles music scene, going back to her first solo EP "Buried Treasure" (What? Records), her band Doll Congress with Michael Penn (Enigma Records) and her subsequent group Valentine's Revenge (Interscope) with fellow writers and players Gar Robertson and John Bitzer.

More recently she has been recording and producing her own solo tracks, presented first in the song-cycle collection "Secret Child" and now in a new CD, "Savasanas I - IV".

"Savasanas I - IV" is the first entry in a new series of works called "Inner Time Music". "Inner Time Music" music allows the listener to drift into deep inner realms and disconnect from our usual physical focus which requires we keep up with the clocks on the wall, on our cellphones, on our computers, radios and televisions, and which instead invites us to recharge our beings in the spacious timeless dimensions within in which we all have our source. It is recommended for any activities where relaxation and letting go are primary goals.

The concept was inspired by a commission from master yoga teacher Annie Carpenter for music to accompany the final, deep relaxation section (the yoga posture or "asana" known as "Corpse Pose" or, in Sanskrit, "Savasana") of a DVD for participants in a UCLA study led by Annie. The only directions given were that there must be no pulse in the compositions, and that they had to be two minutes long, and that several were needed for different sequences.

These original short pieces found their way into the hands of another well known and respected Los Angeles yoga teacher, Vinnie Marino (of Yoga Works in Santa Monica). Vinnie found the pieces totally captivating but too short to allow for prolonged enjoyment of this most transformational asana, and he suggested they be expanded to 10 minutes each and that 4 of them comprise a CD he could use in his class and in his personal practice. "Savasanas I - IV" the fruit of that suggestion.

Although they do not contain anything marking time, these works are not formless. They each have central themes which are stated, evolve and reprise as each track develops, so they are not purely ambient or unstructured. Three of the tracks feature wordless vocals. They feature acoustic and electric guitar, piano, synthesizer, and Gabriele's sensual and emotional vocal textures.

intoxicating....
Savasanas I-IV offers sweet surrender by allowing me to tune out the noise in my head and tap in to the pulse of my heart.

The CD is amazing! I have a hard time finding music that goes straight to my inner core and relaxes me. This works wonders, I am transported. Love it!!!

Donna Fleming

the perfect antidote to Los Angeles
Peaceful, magical and serene - in short, just the ticket for someone who is in need of musical inspiration that provides, as said above, an antidote to the LA experience. It brings me to a much needed state of peace. Thank you, Gabriele Morgan, wherever you are!

Surprising...Not Surprisingly
I have been a fan of Gabriele Morgan's work for many, many (over 20!) years now, and have watched her develop during this time both musically and spiritually. She is no stranger to success, but to fans of her earlier music this CD may come as a complete surprise, as it marks a complete change in direction from the types of music her fans may be used to. This is not pop, or even alternative, but instead a venture into ambient music that is wholly and entirely successful - very much worth getting.

absolutely BEAUTIFUL
I first listened to this CD while putting my 18-month old daughter to bed. Usually this is a difficult time for her, trying to settle down and fall asleep, and crying when I leave the room. However, she instantly laid down quietly and listened, and closed her eyes after just a few moments. No tears at bedtime any more with this CD playing. If this is not a sign of beautiful music I don't know what is! I found each peice just stunning: calming, emotional and hauntingly peaceful. I truly enjoy listening every night and highly, highly recommend it to anyone looking for a relaxing journey to a very special place. I absolutely love it. And I thank Gabriele Morgan from the bottom of my heart for helping my little one ease into sleep much easier with her beautiful gift of music!
