Understanding the concept behind The Prayer Garden. 

 

 During a trip to the Gobi Desert of Mongolia armed with Native American flutes and divine inspiration, World Maestro Colin O’Donohoe sat down in his gert and began to play. The music took on a life of its own and soon he began recording with his wife nearby working the DAW and microphones. 

A few months later with the onset of Covid and mandatory quarantine Colin reopened the files he had begun in Mongolia. He quickly went to work on creating cinematic soundscapes by utilizing the skills he mastered during his long tv composition career. 

Once the tracks were done O’Donohoe began livestreaming the compositions. The response was strong which inspired him to craft four 15 minute long meditation experiences broken into three sections each. 

The final step was bringing in his newly acquired space drums and implementing them into the soundscape. The result: an album with four sonic journeys. The album is meant to be listened to from start to finish. Listening to the album allows the listener to follow the music the way it was intended, four long play tracks. 

A Closer look at the opening piece “Inhale” 

Ambient escapism. Beginning with divinely soothing pads paired with meditative breaths and the lead instrument, Native American flute. 

Percussion fades into the soundscape to provide a pulse to the organic soundscape. Electric bass enters providing a warm presence. Stunning harmonies provide the perfect atmosphere to support the smooth elegance of the flute. The track is expertly composed, performed, and recorded. A must for any calm, meditative, spiritual, passionate, and relaxing playlists. 

A Closer Look at “Eloquent” 

Swirling hypnotic synthetic sounds matched with meditative breaths open the track. Space drum is the lead melodic instrument and enters playing a beautiful melody. As the track progresses the drum becomes more virtuosic. Percussion fades in giving a pulse to the ambient soundscape. Expertly crafted music from the veteran tv composer combined with incredible technique give the listener a refreshing experience.
