Deep Energy – Music for Meditation, Relaxation, Massage and Yoga – The App, is a combination of Sound Designer Jim Butler’s two one hour original music podcasts ‘Dark Ambient’ and ‘Deep Energy’ together in one convenient App with access to some very cool and exclusive bonus features.
The ‘Dark Ambient Podcast’ is a one hour Podcast currently in its third year of production and consists of almost 40 hours of free Ambient/Space/Electronic music. Consistently a 5 Star rated podcast, a sampling of some of the reviews from iTunes:
‘Elusive, lofty, dreamy: simply elegant work. Turn the lights down low, light a candle and enjoy’
‘For those of us who create for a living, and listen for tunes to be inspired’
‘Wonderful drifting, flowing textures that provide a soothing background to any activity. Fans of Steve Roach will appreciate this.’
Last year Jim provided for his listeners a 12 hour podcast titled ‘Sunset to Sunrise’. Split into 12 one hour podcasts released in December 2008, it was music designed to serve as daily background music that could play continuously or as music for a deep sleep cycle to dream by. Those 12 hours and all of the podcasts can be accessed using this App.
The ‘Deep Energy Podcast’ is only 3 episodes young, but already a favorite at iTunes. It was a ‘New and Notables’ pick for the month of October for Audio Music Podcasts, and it has been in and out of the top 100 for Music Podcasts since it’s inception. It differs from the ‘Dark Ambient Podcast’ in that Jim is brining a lighter touch to this music, more inline for daily meditations and relaxations, gentle massage and yoga, perfect for separating yourself from the busy world spinning around you.
