The first time I heard this I could only think of
the universal broadcasts. And I'm going to cast
this thusly:

The most beautiful symphonic piece I've heard in
over a half a century. Georges Delerue rocks me
whirl, baby.

Imagine you are standing on a precipice overlooking
an enormous and turbulent sea which stretches out
before you in radiant colors. Your arms are outstretched
in your praise of your humble existence and you hear this...

Perhaps you will catch a glimpse of your higher self.

I know I do.

The foundation is the teachings of the Urantia Book.

In His Service,
Russ

Yes, it is lovely.

How do we know its foundation is in the teachings of the UB?

ah...that was rather cryptic. I meant that my experience
of my higher self in listening to this piece is based on the
Urantia Book being the foundation of my spiritual beliefs.

Ah so.

Based on what you said, I thought maybe Georges was a UB reader, so I kept listening for a voice to come in and sing to us about something revelatory. When it became clear there would be no voice, having experienced already the outstretched arms and the colorful ocean, I succumbed to the piano itself and therein found release.

I love piano. Chopin and Eric Satie are my favorites. I Googled Georges Delerue (looking for the UB reference, actually) and took note of his range of work for the film industry. I thought maybe I would check out one of his CD's.

Thanks for the introduction.

You may want to check out Jon Serris
He is a famous Ambient musician, and on some of his CD's he has used quotes from the U.B.

I find that many of the artist in the Ambient styling are so close to the spiritual leaning of music.

I admit I am more interested in the spirit of the music than the words. In fact, if the music is speaking, words aren't necessary.

I like music that tells a story, but what I am really looking for is music that creates an atmosphere, which Ambient music will do, but much of it just gets under my skin and on my nerves. I really don't like "new age" music; even though it is mellow and non-invasive, it gets monotonous and pretty soon I want to scream (or hurt somebody :shock: ) which defeats the whole purpose of "meditation music."

What I like about Chopin and Eric Satie, I think, is the mood they create, and the variety of moods they offer without jolting the gray matter. George Delerue created a mood (although I didn't like the beginning of it), and the two Jon Serris cuts I heard bugged me. I am looking for an atmosphere I can live in to write, for hours at a time, without it taking over my energy, invading my mind or getting on my nerves, and it's the kind of thing you only know when you recognize it. Atmospheric but not stultifying. That happened to me with one particular CD of Carlos Nakai, Native American Flute Music, but not with his other CDs. I like Satie's piano compositions, but not when they are adapted to symphonies. Similarly, I'd like to hear this guy, Georges Delerue's, piano compositions.
