Tibet - mysterious land of high mountains and
The rooftop of the world holds our imagination as few
other places do. With a history that can be traced back thousands of years, life
in Tibet has always been marked by the deep religious tradition and a hard life
in harsh mountain climate.
This magic was the inspiration for Margot Reisinger to
create a new powerful production with the project
TIBET - Heart Beat
Again she invited a range of musicians and singers to join her on this
musical adventure. Her very special guest in Minho Sound Studios was the
Tibetan singer, composer and well known Thankha painter Phenpo Tendhar
Tenzin Dhargay. Born to a high-reputed family of thangka artists, he
keeps up this tradition in the 9th generation.
With his spiritual background
and knowledge of the Tibetan Buddhist tradition he was of great
help in the selection and pronunciation of the Mantras and
Margot also got the chance to bring the Kachoe Ghakyil Tibetan
Buddhist Nuns Choir of the Kopan Monastery into the
project. The sound engineer of EXISTENCE, Tom Bates personally
recorded the Nuns Choir on location in Nepal.
Both, the Kachoe Ghakyil Choir and Penpho Tendhar present a wide
range of spiritual mantras, two of which are presented purely vocal.
(Track 5 and 9)
OM MANI PADME HUM, the best known
Tibetan mantra in the west is performed in a modern way and expresses the
alife power of Tibetan spirit. (Track 1)
Intoning these sacred mantras, their voices complement the compositions in a
meditative way. Creatively arranged in the style of Existence
with instruments such as Tibetan Horn, Mongolian horse head violin,
Sitar guitar, chimes, flute, Tibetan bells and cymbals the music
obtains a great degree of authenticity. Percussion, drums, bass,
acoustic and electric guitars create the mystic
background of this production.
TOM BATES, the American producer and sound engineer, winner
of 8 Grammy Awards, sets standards for the highest quality in
sound and performance on this production of the project EXISTENCE.
Tibet - Heart Beat Meditation conveys the timeless Tibetan message of
wisdom "compassion and freedom":
MAY ALL BEINGS BE
