Most of the times the kind of work we present is featured by alternative lifestyle & music blogs that claim to bring about an awareness to a growing subculture within our country.

On the 5th of May we put out India’s first 5.1 Surround Sound electronic music showcase at PVR Cinema & this time The Indian Express caught us at Audio Aashram by surprise when they called wanting to write a feature on my Surround Sound Music showcase ‘The Kundalini Highway’. Super cool to see mainstream media picking up genuine stories & actually help create awareness for experiences that lie outside the regular realm of nightlife & club culture!

Watch the video at TURIYA

According to ancient Indian Scriptures,
there are four states of consciousness
Waking. Dreaming. Deep rest and ‘Turiya’ the fourth state
which silently witnesses all the other three.

This is an experiment to showcase how different mediums of expression interact with technology and create an immersive experience.

All effects & visuals are created pre production & performed live.

Sattyananda - Natural RhythmsTo listen & buy this release please visit http://sattyananda.com/music/natural-rhythms-2015-spiritual/

Every once in a while in life one feels like taking a vacation not just from work but from everything else as well, one gets this urge to want to connect to a deeper rhythm within oneself and just get back to a natural state of being, a comfortable relaxed space of existence

Music is probably everyone’s best friend in moments like that it gives you some time off it gives you inspiration it rejuvenates you it makes you happy gives you strength, music does a lot to help humanity move along in this crazy chaotic busy life that surrounds each and every one of us

NATURAL RHYTHMS is an album that aims at giving you that vacation you are looking for its an album that invokes solitude and makes you want to spend some quite time contemplating and just being. :)

The album was written in the winter of 2013 there are 7 tracks in this album and each song is named after a moment inspired by the beauty of planet earth and the different roles Mother Nature plays in our lives.

Track 1 Sunrise in the mountains
Track 2 A Walk on the Beach
Track 3 The Rain Song
Track 4 Full Moon in a Forest
Track 5 Winter by the Lake
Track 6 Sunset in the Desert
Track 7 Universal love of Natural Rhythms

All the names for the songs are self-explanatory

Natural Rhythms from my point of view as an artist is an album for people who are looking for something deep, something silent, something that make you aware and yet takes you on a journey into your natural self.

I feel its best enjoyed in a quite meditative environment with your body being in a relaxed and comfortable posture. One should try and hear it with like-minded people or just with your lover but its best enjoyed on your own.

I hope you enjoy the space it invokes with in you.

With all my love,

Sattyananda

Sonic Mandalas CoverTo listen & buy this release please visit http://sattyananda.com/music/sonic-mandalas-experimental/

Why I choose digital music / electronic music as a medium to express myself as an artist is because I’m able to tell a story through this medium & that’s the one thing that constantly fascinates me & also keeps me excited about using this medium. I am not so much in to the production side of things as I am more into the concept of telling the story having said that ‘Sonic Mandalas’ was produced in the winter of 2007, at that time I was really excited as this was the first album I was going to write using the software Logic.

The concept of this album is based around the pattern we are all a part of, where our consciousness has comes to life and is experiencing itself.

What is a mandala?

The word “mandala” is from the classical Indian language of Sanskrit. Loosely translated to mean “circle,” a mandala is far more than a simple shape. It represents wholeness, and can be seen as a model for the organizational structure of life itself–a cosmic diagram that reminds us of our relation to the infinite, the world that extends both beyond and within our bodies and minds.

So, ‘Sonic Mandalas’ has 7 tracks, the first one ‘Open Reflections’ is where the consciousness comes to life and sees its own reflection in the cosmos. Leading on to ‘Heady Messages’ which is about how after consciousness is reflected the head receives messages from everywhere and the dream becomes a reality. The song ‘Other Planets’ is about understanding where the experience is taking place and how different races on earth came from different planets and colonized earth. ‘Twisted Realms’, it’s about realizing that the consciousness is in the middle of the experience and there is no way to go back. ‘You’re safe’ is the track where the consciousness comes to terms with where it is and what it needs to do. ‘Things we share our planet with’, is when the consciousness understands that everything that helps it exist and experience life is created by other forms of life and its future depends on everything else. The last track ‘Sonic mandalas’, is the mandala for bliss, here the consciousness realizes its purpose and understands deeply that this experience is about being free loving sharing caring helping and uplifting other forms of life and energy it is a song for inner celebration :)

Hope you enjoy listening to it :)
