The nomadic duo of Alexander Hacke (Einsturzende Neubauten) and Danielle de Picciotto (Space Cowboys) are releasing a free piece of meditation music via their newsletter. The newsletter says:
“We as artists are not having an easy time with all of this, but realize that the work and care invested by doctors, nurses, social workers, grocery sales people, pharmacists and many more is unsurpassed and we feel the urge to help as well with the means we have.
“So we have decided to release the download to one of our meditation tracks for free. It is on the album UNITY and it was the first meditation composition we released. https://hackedepicciotto.bandcamp.com/track/108
“This piece is very dear to our hearts, because Danielle collected all the positive words she could think of – 108 in fact, which is a magical number. We listen to this track often when we feel desperate or frightened and it always manages to remind us of the beauty and hope that survives in spite of it all.
“So we hope that as many of you as possible will download it and enjoy the power of language. We deeply believe that words hold a strong energy, that is why Danielle loves doing spoken word. “In the beginning was the Word”
“We can feel the energy move when she pronounces them, especially the positive ones and there are a lot of those in this composition. Some say there are 108 styles of meditation – one word for each meditation. In astrology, there are twelve houses and nine planets, 12 x 9 = 108.
“The diameter of the Sun is 108 times the diameter of the Earth. The distance from the Sun to the Earth is 108 times the diameter of the Sun.
“Mystical magic everywhere. This track contains 108 affirmations to meditate on and give you strength. Love and Health to All.”
