Berkdrums Ashamed to say, but before this stunning album was released I didn’t know Byron’s music and albums that well.. it always sort of crossed my path while searching and listening albums by Roach, Loren Nerell, Mark Seelig etc. But yeah, better late than never I would say... because I am so incredibly happy that this album appeared on my radar!! I was an Erik Wøllo-fan right from the moment I first heard his music, and the collaboration here between Byron, Erik and Peter Phippen is just beyond greatness... the catchy, nostalgic melodies from Erik’s guitar and Peter’s flutes combined with the pureness of the groovy, and insanely well-executed percussionparts by Byron is a match made in heaven.. Being a drummer and percussionist myself and making a living from it, I listen to beatless ambient most of the time, just because I want to step out of the beats and grooves for a moment. So I am very fussy and critical about ambientmusic with beats, percussion etc. This album for me is on top of the list of rhythmical ambient-music.. It’s so stunningly beautiful and created from the heart, you can feel it right away when you press play.. The primal percussion instruments Byron uses, with the ambient musical textures just create magic... High time for me to explore more of Byron’s work! This masterpiece also comes in a digipack with amazing artwork.., Congrats Byron, Erik and Peter!!

Frank LaRue Owen A great alchemical weaving of Byron's polyrhythmic drumming, Phippen's soul-soothing flute, and Wollo's vast synthscapes and panoramic melodies. Not overbearing as some drum-supported recordings can be, Inner Rhythm Meditations Vol II is a masterful offering, Favorite track: A Naturally Occuring Heart.

about

Legendary percussionist Byron Metcalf's Inner Rhythm Meditations Vol II continues the immersive journey into hypnotic rhythms and haunting melodic textures which he began on the critically acclaimed, award-nominated 2016 album Inner Rhythm Meditations – Music for Expanded Awareness and Inspired Movement. Once again joined by noted sound sculptor Erik Wøllo & world-class flutist Peter Phippen, Metcalf explores a haunting landscape that gravitates between pulsing sensuality and drifting contemplation. Inner Rhythm Meditations Vol II is a deeper exploration of the dynamic interplay between the energetic and the subtle— sometimes vibrant, sometimes spacious. The seven tracks perfectly portray the exquisite dance that can occur between stillness and motion, each trait coalescing into the other at times, but also each venturing into their own unique sonic landscape. A profoundly meditative listening experience, this album presents an opportunity to journey inward while also providing a backdrop for movement through space. In this way, Inner Rhythm Meditations Vol II is the best of both worlds in the genre of music for reflection and contemplation.
