Soma, in ancient Vedic writings, was a strong drink that could help one commune with gods. It also meant "body" to the ancient Greeks. Robert Rich and Steve Roach released a CD by this name in 1992. Klaus Wiese released this disc in 2000. He describes it as "inner space music." That description is accurate. These atmospheres, built upon low drones, are perfect for exploring the psyche and the soul. Building upon Wiese's description, the surest way to the inner self is through the exploration of the external self and the environment. This CD is totally atmospheric and totally mesmerizing. There are no distractions and there is an infinite number of hidden meanings. The psyche of the listener determines the route of the journey. This disc will appeal to fans of Life in Balance, Al Gromer Khan, Jim Cole, and Deborah Van Dyke.
