THE ZEN EFFECT

BY ROLFE KENT
 

I've spent my entire life studying the different ways that sound affects emotion. This is what film music does: it makes us feel.

 

I created The Zen Effect as a sort of experiment; if swelling violins can make you feel hopeful, if sharp percussion and loud brass can excite you, if a strummed guitar can help you to feel tenderness -- why shouldn't there be music which, when listened to, feels grounding?  Helps you focus?  Makes you... calm? So, I set out to describe -- with sound -- what it feels like to meditate.  

 

I've found that it helps me to break through creative blocks, to read without distraction, to smile through a dismal drive in horrible LA traffic, and to feel as if a long, boring journey took only half the time it should have. Try it out. Tell me what you think. Let me know how you use it.  I'd love to hear your thoughts.

GRACE GOES GLIDING

AWAKENING ASTRID

Excellent for reading, doing homework, grading papers, or anything which requires focus and concentration.

This is what mental clarity sounds like.

Transform any environment into your own personal temple. Be still.  Feel calm.  Meditate without meditating.  

 

This is what serenity sounds like.

DIMITRI DIVES IN

Increase communication, personableness, charm and dynamics.  Make the phone call you've been dreading.  Ask for that raise.  

 

This is what connection sounds like.
