Samarkand is another psychoactive sound design by overtone master Klaus Wiese. This recording of Tibetan bowls, zither, and keyboards is just as special as any recording in this style. Listeners are free to choose their own pathways and spirituality. Wiese is only providing the vehicle -- he's not a tour guide. Focused listening is the only option. The warm, organic textures and timbres will caress listeners gently and provide protection along the chosen route. Because listeners choose their own paths, there are limitless adventures available on this CD. It is essential for all fans of healing music and will appeal to fans of Thea Susaru, Deborah Van Dyke, Xumantra, Life in Balance, and Mathias Grassow.
