I had to honor the process. As the recording process unfolded, I brought in each of my band members and allowed them to hear about 1 minute of the song to determine the key and the mood, and then I recorded them. Allowing the music to create itself was a key factor in being able to source healing energy. I allowed the melody to come to me from the wind and I played what I heard. And I was surprised and grateful that the energy could be caught on tape and extended to others.

In its most complex form, Savasana is an out-of-body experience To imagine what other-worldly, out-of-body music might sound like, and to do my best to create it was like free-falling.
I also noticed that I needed to start with a clear mind and no plan.
Kirk Margo played jazz and electric guitar. If indeed the practice of leaving the body in Savasana was like dying as the literal translation of the word impliedthen it was something you could never prepare for. In any case, having no music and no ideas was what forced me to hover between earth and heaven.

In yoga class, the posture for deep relaxation is "savasana" - the practice consists of dissolving the body and mind into a space of deep spiritual peace. Brian Allen bowed notes on the upright bass.
I added this at the saavsana of Om Tare to indicate the filtering process. It also presented a problem. Exhausted from the European tour, my voice was scratchy, my body tired. I tried to imagine those tones in my auditory mind, and used whistling and higher frequencies to create it in the tracks.
Allowing the music to create itself was a key factor in being able to source healing energy. And so I started each time with nothing. As the recording process unfolded, I brought in each of my band members and allowed them to hear about 1 minute of the song to determine the key and the mood, and then I recorded them.
Apparently, light and music frequencies are like so many threads intertwining to create a pathway back to the spirit world. People asked when the next Savasana CD would come out, and I avoided their questions.

I learned how imagination and intuition come together to create savasaa vibrations. A few tracks were thrown out, but everything I recorded that day stayed.
It is a yogic practice which is as specific wavasana all the other postures or asanas practiced during yoga class.
The music was so effective, he found he was "spacing out" as he listened to the tracks. I had become more involved in Anusara Yoga and Ashtanga Yoga practices, and had expanded my own routines to include these. There were no second chances. Seva had a different problem. I had taken a month off from touring, and was badly in need of rest and healing. I asked for sounds and performances which seemed unusual, even crazy, but not impossible. Because Savasana was taught to me as a time of deep healing, a time of dissolving ego, scars, and worldly attachments, I went to a deep place as I sang.
I could beat them mercilessly with certain tones to break up blockages. I had only a few deities written on a piece of paper. Certainly practicing yoga and then sitting down to pray and sing left me more expanded than ever before. I played only in group classes, and explored my process - musically, mentally, and spiritually. I couldn't just come up with a few tunes and record them.
