Liquid Mind IX: Lullaby is slow music at its best...
Soothing, melodic, heartfelt, and comforting, this new album from Liquid Mind® composer Chuck Wild continues a fifteen year tradition of deeply calming music for relaxation.
Appealing to the softer side of the musical spectrum, Liquid Mind IX: Lullaby is filled with gentle extended soundscapes that create a welcome relief to those of us searching for a break from our high stress, high energy world.
Liquid Mind's albums have for many years been popular with music therapists and other healthcare practitioners, and are frequently used in massage, anxiety management, meditation, sleep therapy, surgical recovery, Yoga, Reiki, Pilates, maternity and many other healing settings.
While we think of lullabies as being primarily for children, you will find the peaceful compositions on Liquid Mind IX: Lullaby are perfect for both grownups and kids.

January 2009: Liquid Mind - Recommended For Soul-Bathing, by A. S. (Canada)
It was in Second Life (yea, I'm one of those - more on that later) that I stumbled on an internet station named 'Cryosleep', part of the Bluemars set of stations. The station's motto; 'zero-beat guaranteed'. And I was hooked - it was music that would surround me and soothe me, and unwind the knots I'd tied myself into. Plus, even if some of the tracks seemed to fall into the realm of 'new age', it was without the smarmy, post-hippie new age-y simplicity of so much of that genre. And although you would call it an Ambient station, it also lacked the ultra-cool, sunglasses-at-night, too busy to feel anything -style of many ambient mixes I've heard.
So, when Cryosleep went silent just before Christmas this year, I was suddenly without a fix, so I went to the Artists page hoping to find a hit or two of musical soothe. And after a few visits to Google, I fell into Chuck Wild's Liquid Mind series - stopping there because of all the tracks on Cryosleep, his were the ones I'd stop dead for.

It was as if I'd turned a dark corner into a secret garden safe from the marauding 21st century. It was a voice in my ear that said softly and powerfully, 'it's ok - I know what you're holding, and you can let go for now - let me carry it for a while'. The music to me is silence and tranquility in sound, and I can sit and feel the tangled strands of my thoughts slowly unwind into smoothed out rows of bundled thread. For me, it unlocks a sadness and a joy that has no other way out, giving both some air to breathe before being submerged again to face another day in the world.
It took me a while of listening, and a listen to the composer's audio interview off the Liquid Mind website [note: see audio links in the section above], to understand what gives this plainly static music its power. Through the slow, drifting, gorgeous chords he puts out, anchored by really, really deep basses, and voiced in wide, expansive canvases, there is an almost subliminal pulsation - either in the sounds themselves, or through arpeggios and rythmic lines ever-so-carefully submerged in the ocean of sound each track holds. So, when the composer said his inspiration was from hours of standing by the Pacific Ocean, which had
