Liquid Bloom is a downtempo, world-fusion project founded by Amani Friend of Desert Dwellers, spurred by a lifetime of travel and immersion into the worlds of organic sounds and ceremonial instrumentation. Founded in 2001 to explore the effects of music in inducing theta brainwave trance states, Liquid Bloom has evolved into a multifaceted collaboration project involving world music artists like Poranguî, Deya Dova, Ixchel Prisma, Rara Avis, Shamans Dream, along with cutting edge producers and remixers from across the globe like Kaminanda, Mose, AtYyA, Numatik, and Hedflux.
The music of Liquid Bloom transports the listener to imaginative realms inspired by the resonance of the world’s ancient lineages, providing a soundtrack for intentional expeditions, blending ceremonial instrumentation with natural atmospheres and field recordings, sublime vocals and medicine songs, and layered sound design. Liquid Bloom’s deep meditative styling is a vessel for clear and awakened vision. Whether paired with ecstatic dance, meditation, yoga, bodywork, or artistic creation, Liquid Bloom grants the listener a spacious sonic experience in our quest for inspiration and creative insight, its applications are limited only by the imagination. This tapestry of sound will emerge as a whisper in one moment and a breath of healing flames in the next.
During theta and delta brainwave states, the mind’s activity is slowed, thereby unfolding a heightened state of awareness and unified perception. We become sensitive, receptive, intuitive, present and centered in our heart’s intelligence. Being in trance is like being awake in a dream. We invite you to relax in a gentle space where you will not be interrupted, and open yourself to these musical soundscapes … allowing them to transport you through the doorway of your own heart, and into the rich and friendly realm that exists beyond time and mind. You may wish to set an intention for your journey in the form of exploration, clarification, or requests, which may include returning alert, feeling refreshed and grounded, or gaining insight into the depths of our human experience.
