Amber and Jade is ideal for anyone needing to relax deeply from the effects of today’s stressful life-styles. Holistic Practitioners, healers, and those doing massage, yoga, or reiki will find this album particularly beneficial to their work. The group Symbiosis features the uplifting flute-playing of John Hackett; Richard Bolton on guitars and cello; and keyboards, autoharp and gentle percussion from producer Clive Williamson.
“After the success of our album Touching the Clouds, with its Zen-like spacious quality,” says Clive, “we wanted to create a new album specially for relaxing listening and therapies which had a warmer, more pastoral feeling… so, inspired by our work with Denise Linn on her ‘Phoenix Rising’ guided meditations, we set about recording Amber and Jade. We made it more than long enough to play through a one-hour therapy session, using lots of natural instruments and sounds to bring lightness and breath to the work! The tracks blend gently into each other, giving a sense of continuous support and nurturing during holistic therapies such as massage, aromatherapy and reflexology, a bit like the therapist keeping continuous touch with the client so as not to break the flow!”
