What's in a trance? It's a state of mind that has a history of fascinating society through the ages. From ancient shamanic ceremonies that provoke visions with extended rituals and mind-blowing chemistry, through the whirling dervishes of 13th century Islam, the hypnosis techniques of Professor Mesmer and others in the 20th century, right up to the cathartic all-night dance marathons of the rave generation — inducing trance states...is something like the extreme sports division of mysticism.
On this edition of Hearts of Space we'll take a slightly safer approach — with a trance-ambient journey by musicians who create this experience in sound. Music is by OPEN CANVAS, DAVID PARSONS, STEVE ROACH & ROBERT RICH, EBERHARD SCHOENER, LUMIN, and KLAUS WIESE.
