Nāda Yoga and Drone music

Nāda yoga, the ancient Indian metaphysical system is based on the premise that the entire cosmos can be perceived as a sound vibration called Nāda.

Sound in Nāda yoga is classified as 'Anāhata', the internal unstruck sound and 'Āhata', the external vibrating sound.

Performing live ambient drone music involves the use of various meditative techniques (Kriya yoga) to sanctify the inner space and impart this vibration through a process of artistic alchemy - a process of experiencing the Anāhata through the Āhata.
