This essentially two-part album (the longer cuts are reprised in five-minute versions) by brothers Steve and David Gordon offers extended outer/inner musical excursions for relaxation, massage, or meditation. The sonic environments sparkle with starlight and chimes, and temple bells are given substance with bass vibrations and drones and are moved along by spacewinds and the sensation of sounds approaching and receding as your mind flies by. Electronic sequences, fades, echoes, and delays, mixed with the flute, nature sounds, Indian tamboura, and temple bells, combine to freshen the mind and relax the body. "Waves of Bliss" also offers angelic voices in duet with songbirds. It's like being in Shangri-La. Oneness is part of their Inner Music Series.
