Tao of Healing

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Carol Wright
This peaceful Asian-flavored album mixes the soaring sounds of Dean Evenson's silvery flute with the flourishes and twangs of the guqin, a seven-string Chinese zither. Professor Li Xiangting from the Beijing Central Conservatory of Music is the world authority on the guqin and one of the few masters who improvises on the instrument. The evocative tracks on TAO OF HEALING are relatively free from set rhythms and melodic development. Evenson and Li play off each other's phrases with melodic, echoed overlappings that fit agreeably with the cadence of an easy, relaxed breath perhaps the effect of the added Earth Resonance Frequency of 7.8 hertz.

Keyboard wizardry, stylish harmonic guitar effects by Scott Huckabay, and percussion accents by Sarah Hall give the album all the atmosphere needed to make your space a pleasure dome. This lovely music is equally suitable for meditation, massage, yoga, Tai Chi, or just blissing out.
All Music Guide - Jim Brenholts
Tao of Healing is an "exquisite collaboration between sound healing pioneer Dean Evenson and Chinese gugin master Li Xiangting." A gugin is a seven-stringed zither. These like-minded spirits join their musical healing powers to create a joyous new age masterpiece. The atmospheres and sound design are largely acoustic. The very subtle synth adds an aura to the set. Evenson's flute goes to a higher plane and takes listeners along for the ride. Xiangting's zither is mesmerizing; it has qualities of a sitar with a much broader range. Scott Huckabay contributes a gentle guitar to the proceedings. This is great alternative minimalism from two musical wizards. It essential holistic new age music. This CD will appeal to fans of Steven Halpern, Lisa Lynne, Constance Demby, and Tingstad & Rumbel.
