Mantra, Michael

Michael Mantra creates ambient music.  More than that, he creates tools for "brain hemisphere synchronization" (after synchronizing the mind and the body, Mantra's work claims to release endorphins - part of the human body's natural pharmacy which work at the level of opiates).  Mixing modulating high and low harmonic tones (low deep drones and high resonating harmonics) with didgeridoo, ocean waves, rain, water, birds and other natural sounds and instruments, Michael creates a perfect ambient soundscape for the ultimate relaxation trip.

Michael Mantra + Charlz de la Casa - Cerulean Transmission

Artists: Michael Mantra + Charlz de la Casa
P: 2006

A precious sonic masterwork, documenting the extraordinary collaboration between Michael Mantra and Charlz De La Casa. A cd of suspended time and space... 'classical' static music. Two long tracks flow like sonic lava, weaving together lush background washes, and evocative field recordings. Dark electric sounds, beautiful drones, inner-Earth rumbling, human voices, concrete noises, ship engines, sirens, sounds of the sea, bubbles, wind, chants, and wildlife sounds merge in an indefinable (and never before experienced) way... an absolutely unmissable work.

Michael Mantra -  Sonic Alter Deepchord Remix

Artist: Michael Mantra
P:
2004
Sound is the most subtle energy in the Universe. Listening to sound is the easiest way to open up the doors of perception. Sounds can be classified as to whether they open up, or close down the subtle electrical nervous systems referred to as the chakras.
Sound can be a direct key to changing moods, states of feelings, or consciousness. Listening with every part of attention on every level of sensory input allows the listeners to focus their existence, and be capable of making positive changes. Learning to listen with one's full being becomes a vehicle to evolve into a better human being. Learning to fully listen can be applied to appreciating other humans and other life forms.
Every person (and everything) can teach us something valuable and important for our own personal evolution. Listening with our whole heart and soul is the key to enjoying life to the fullest. Sonic Alter provides an audio gradient for changing states. Stereo headphones will yield the maximum effect for positive change. Caution is advised: Do not listen to this recording while operating a motor vehicle, heavy machinery, aircraft, flying saucers or marine craft.This is a new re-working of the classic ambient masterpiece by Michael Mantra. Sonic Alter was originally issued by Kim Cascone on his Silent imprint in 1994.
For this version, Rod Modell added rhythmic elements and further processing. The original Sonic Alter was one of the best selling atmospheric records, and possibly the best on Silent. Many brain-hemisphere synchronization techniques / frequencies are employed.
With headphones, this CD has a stunning drug-like effect.
An updated classic.

Soft and dilated ambient atmospheres, minimalist sounds, fluctuating electronic carpets...A new fascinating classic in the typical and unmistakable style of Michael Mantra...Four long suggestive tracks to listen to quietly in the shadows as "discreet" and refined background music, or crank up the volume for a full immersion in warm and blanketing electronic waves...in search of intriguing and evocative soundscapes.

Michael Mantra - A/B

Artist: Michael Mantra
P: 2006
"A/B is an album of ultra minimal atmospheric ambient drone-core. The sonic progressions change ever so slowly over time that is standing still and frozen in the moment. A/B is an excursion into dark ambience searching for substance and meaning in a world devoid of reason and compassion. Listening to A/B with stereo headphones provides isolation from a world out of balance. A/B is a temporary shelter from the abuse of conspicuous consumerism of modern culture. A/B is all about a reduction to the basic elements; nothing more, nothing less. A/B is dedicated to world peace for all sentient beings."

Michael Mantra - Amonita Lake

Artist: Michael Mantra
P: 1996 / 2010 DVD: 2007
Two hours and a half of music collected on a double CD set that also contains a DVD video. Two long tracks of sublime and evocative pseudo-abstract and multicoloured ambient textures, built with “discreet” and repetitive background microstructures layered with continuous and infinite variations worked out from “clusters” of sounds and “sketches” of melodic sequences made of light sonorities, “delicate” and “quiet” as well, but also hypnotic and warm… Fragile harmonies and mild dissonances in a timeless sonic continuum that enwraps and “rocks” the listener, among infinite spirals and floating waves in an everlasting movement… Another new, mind-boggling masterpiece, absolutely unmissable for all the lovers of Michael Mantra’s music. The Video contains the music of the first CD with a movie from a tree in the wind.

Michael Mantra - D/A

Artist: Michael Mantra
P: 2013
LTD 300
“The D/A album is a part of a series of albums that came out after A/B. A/B was a very minimal atmospheric ambient dronecore album that altered peoples consciousness. That is what I do. There are certain principles of psychoacoustics that is difficult to understand. Simply my mother was a mystic, she taught me things that only very high raja yogis teach or understand. Besides principles of Nada Yoga that I learned from a Raja Yogi I utilize principles from Integrated Tai Chi Chuan of the Chen Pan Ling tradition. And only a very few of them knew of these principles. I've incorporated technology to the practice. My father on the other hand brought home an Ampex reel to reel and a microphone for me to play with at an early age. And my father got me going on technology. So between my mother and my father I do what I do which is very very unique. I am able to change brain wave patterns and neurochemical balances of the listener. And the thing is I am still learning. This is a lifelong pursuit of truth and knowledge. My goal is to create music that causes soldiers to toss down their weapons and refuse to fight. My father was a very highly decorated war hero and he taught me to hate war. And he taught me why war dehumanized people through stories he taught me about how war messed him up. I will never forget his stories. For now I have not reached that level of music to end war. But the music I do create does change people.” — (Michael Mantra)

P: 2008
Evocative and crepuscular atmospheres, tenuous sounds from the inks color pastel, minimalistic melodies acclimatized on background of "discreet" but wrapping field recordings... Evoked and surrealistic soft sonorous landscapes with warm synthetic sounds, mixed to crystalline natural noises, concrete sounds, breaths... A fascinating album of quiet ambient music from one of the masters of the genre.

Rod Modell + Michael Mantra - Sonic Continuum

Artist: Rod Modell & Michael Mantra
P:
1997
Rod Modell and Michael Mantra's first collaboration is also the first release by either artist on Hypnos Recordings. Comprised of two 35-minute pieces, Sonic Continuum works best at low volume, especially when played while sleeping or relaxing. These long, slow-moving pieces work their way into the background of your awareness, and create a shift in your sense of where -- and when -- you're listening. Imagine it's 4 a.m., and you are sitting alone under a pier at a beach. Sounds of voices float down from above you, and crashing waves form a background in the darkness. Though there is little you can see around you, the sounds give you a sense of your surroundings. The voices murmur quietly, and you feel pleasantly alone, secure in a private place. The binaural "brain tuning" techniques employed in this recording induce a strange, but calming psychological effect... sort of relaxing, but also sort of mind-bending.
