Mick Rossi is a celebrated pianist, composer, percussionist, conductor, and arranger. On Dancing Clouds, Mick blends light alpha waves pulses created by sound healer Dr. Jeffrey Thompson into vivid, evocative, and mellow layers of melody and rhythm performed on keyboards, mbira, doumbek, shakers, harmonium, strings, saz, oud, and gongs. A truly unique journey into tranquil musical spaces. Your body will enjoy the gentle rhythms while your mind is drawn into free flow and clarity.
Light alpha waves are the brainwaves that people naturally produce in states of alert relaxation. Dr. Thompson has developed unique ways to combine these light alpha pulses with musical soundtracks. After a few minutes of listening, your own brainwaves “lock” onto the pulses and lead you effortlessly to what is sometimes referred as “the zone,” where your body naturally relaxes and your mind rests in a place of centered calm, quiet focus, and sublime clarity.
