A welcoming message from Dr. Christopher Lloyd Clarke B.Sc, Msc.D.
Meditation music composer and founder of Royalty Free Meditation Music.com
As a composer and producer, it’s been my privilege to work hand in hand with a wide range of therapists and holistic healers to create music for guided meditations, relaxation and hypnosis. I have been composing music for about as long as I have been practicing meditation...around 15 years now.
I am keenly aware of how important music is to the healing arts. Music is a language of emotion, and of spirit, and it can do so much more than just "sit in the background". When used to enhance a natural healing practice, music can have a profound effect on the listener. It sets the mood for their experience, it lulls their mind into a state of relaxation, and it helps them open up to the healing power of your words.
Great music also adds a tremendous amount of depth and professionalism to your audio production, and your listeners will thank you for it. In fact, the music is often the first thing that people will notice about your work!
As you can probably imagine, I’ve listened to countless relaxation recordings over the years. I must confess that I am often a little disappointed with the quality of the music that is presented in many of these recordings. How shall I put it? Well to be frank, they often sound a little too "cheap" or "basic".
When I mention this to people, I am often met with nods of agreement.
I don’t think that this happens because of a lack of care. I think it happens because good quality royalty free meditation music is not easy to find. This is evidenced by the fact that I constantly receive comments from visitors like this:
"Your meditation music is beautiful; I have been looking for some time and not finding what I want. So thank you for making your work available!"
If you visit any of the major royalty free music websites, you will discover that most of the meditation/hypnosis music they offer is not very suitable for use in meditation, relaxation or hypnosis recordings at all! Their music is usually of a short duration, or it is low in quality, or it is simply not relaxing enough. As a result, many people are forced to compromise, and low quality music makes its way onto many recordings these days.
My goal is to ensure that you do not have to make this compromise.
After all, this is important work we’re doing here! We are in the business of inspiring people, healing people, and helping them reach their fullest potential! Each and every person that comes into contact with our work deserves the very best we can give them!
My approach to music composition
I am an artist and I am a scientist too, and I express both these aspects of myself in equal measure when I create royalty free meditation music. While I am composing, I enter into a state of deep relaxation. I feel my way through the music as I search for sounds that draw me into a deeper and deeper state. It’s a wonderful, intuitive process – a process that I have cultivated through years of meditation practice.
At the same time, I am well versed in the scientific principles of psychoacoustics and music psychology, and I apply these principles whenever I write music for meditation and deep relaxation. I also take a very hands on approach to the audio engineering processes that take place during mixing and mastering. I'm very careful about getting the sound "just right".
"I am passionate about the music I create. When I compose royalty free music, I know that it will become part of a relaxing, healing experience that may touch many lives. It is my sincere hope that you will enjoy listening to the tracks you hear on this website, and that you will also appreciate the level of care and attention to detail that has gone into the composition of each and every one."
