ABOUT THE TRACK
"Phlebas" is the third electronic meditation track to be released by Matt Singmin (a.k.a SOLON).
Designed specifically to induce a state of yoga nidra (yogic sleep), the ambient composition is inspired by a sequence in T.S.Eliot's poem the Wasteland:
Phlebas the Phoenician, a fortnight dead,
Forgot the cry of gulls, and the deep seas swell
And the profit and loss. A current under sea
Picked his bones in whispers. As he rose and fell
He passed the stages of his age and youth
Entering the whirlpool. Gentile or Jew
O you who turn the wheel and look to windward,
Consider Phlebas, who was once handsome and tall as you.
The track features sonic references to the poem: the cry of gulls, the rumble of thunder, the distant call of bells, and analog synthesisers which surround and swell like the ocean.
At ten minutes long, the track has 3 phases, each of which is designed to drop the listener one step further into meditation - slowing the heart rate, calming the breath and facilitating the activation of the parasympathetic nervous system.
