Mark Seelig - Disciple

Artist: Mark Seelig
P: 2010
isciple' is Mark's first solo project. On this CD he fully immerses himself into the traditional Indian Raga styles. The music on the album reflects his 23 years of being a disciple, an initiated seeker. All these years ago he received the spiritual name 'Amaresh', a challenge and promise at the same time. The meaning of 'Amaresh' is 'god of immortality'. To him, this name always meant that his life after initiation should be dedicated to the search for wisdom, and the divine immortal core of the human soul. In that sense, 'Disciple' tells the story of this search, the ever growing experience as a disciple that we can easily get lost in the games of this world if we don't remind ourselves of our divine purpose and essence.  The tracks on this CD are deeply devotional featuring several guest artists from India, the US, and the UK. Recorded in three countries, India, Germany, and the US, 'Disciple' mirrors Mark's long lasting connection to these lands. With its spiritual energy and long tracks, 'Disciple' is best suited for deep meditation and any kind of devotional practice.
Mark considers his solo album an expression of gratitude to all spirit beings, and to all the people who have been important in his life.

Mark Seelig - The Disciple's Path

Artist: Mark Seelig
P: 2020
LTD 500
Mark Seelig’s ambient-organic THE DISCIPLE’S PATH follows upon the passionate deep sonic enchantment of his previous DISCIPLE (Projekt, 2010). After years of collaborations with Steve Roach, Byron Metcalf and Loren Nerell, Seelig returns to his solo work on this unique, engaging medicine music. Steeped in traditional Indian Ragas, the sultry ambient washes and occasional entrancing rhythms form the backdrop for Mark’s organic and intimate Bansuri flute melodies. Potent and seductive, the pieces venture to the frontiers of consciousness, animating the 78 minutes of music with an inviting enticement into dimensions of the beyond.
“The vision,” Mark explains, “is to honor life in general and to specifically pay reverence to all people immersed in ancient wisdom traditions of the world. As a student and practitioner of shamanic healing teachings, I am curious to learn from them and fascinated with finding musical expression of their mystique."
"In troubled times, disciples of all kinds search for ways to understand current challenges and implement what they learn on their path to help create a healthy and conscientious way of living together with creation. Indian Ragas are deeply rooted in one of these ancient wisdom teachings. The pieces on this album reflect a musical journey that casts a bridge from indigenous traditions to the current world, as another disciple pursues the path…”
From a previous Textura review: Seelig “…plays with admirable humility. Never in his playing is there any hint of ego indulgence; on the contrary, his every expression seems tailored to strengthen the total musical effect, and the aromatic quality and haunting tone of the flute is consistently reinforced by the expansive backdrop.”
Over four tracks — the shortest running a touch over ten minutes and the longest 36 minutes — the mind is engaged and entranced by Bansuri flute, dilruba (Indian cello), electronic violin, harmonic chants, soundscapes, percussion, and drones.
