New release: David Lee Myers’s “Reduced to a Geometrical Point”

I am not an advocate of “music for meditation” and in fact believe that to be a completely misguided notion. However, I have observed that some audio constructions seem to encourage a posture of staying in the moment. This has proven to be a fascination over time.
