Mantra attempts to create sound structures that "induce a meditative state that synchronizes brain wave frequencies" or, more simply put by Mantra himself, create "Brain Hemisphere Harmonic Healing". From the early cassette only releases "Sonic Transform" with John Now and "Sonic Satori" to the CD release on Silent "Sonic Alter" and the brilliant follow-up "Sonic Continuum" with Silent Records contributor Rod Modell, Mantra strives to keep the Ambient "ethic" of the early 90's "chill out" vibe alive.
According to the packaging on his release "Sonic Transform", "Sonic Transform is an audio tool for transform[ing] negative yin emotions to ... positive yang emotions." This statement sums up what many envision the Ambient "chill room ethic" to be.
He passed away on the 5th April 2014 because of cancer!
