Outside the Innermost Squall Peter Bowles

The composer invites you to close your eyes and let the music guide you on a journey. This journey is not limited by the physical boundaries of your head, and you might shrink yourself to the micro level and escape into an infinite playground (or battleground) which is yours to discover or overcome. On this micro level, you may realize that your very being, just like everything else is subject to the all too powerful and uncontrollable elements of nature. So whether you’re sailing upwind a light breeze of introspection, falling into a refreshing pool of epiphany, or suddenly caught in a storm of regret, with any luck this journey will help put us in our little place and evoke a new sense of harmony in nature.

This piece gets its source material from a Tibetan singing bowl. 8 channels are preferred to fully capture the “largeness” of the piece.
