Liner Note:
Michael Mantra was a close friend and mentor. He was a man who dedicated his life to harnessing the subtle energies contained in soft noise and using them for the betterment of mankind. Mike believed that listening with our whole heart and soul was the key to enjoying life to the fullest. He created auditory gradients for changing states of mind, and believed sound was the key to unlocking unseen universes. 25 years ago, Mike (fully) understood things about sound that modern books on vibration-healing are just touching on today. His contribution to society cannot be overstated. He dedicated himself "to the spiritual liberation of all sentient beings" through his sound-works. Desmond K. Hill once said that Mike's neuro-soundtracks could "radically transform the way human beings function psychologically". "After 20-30 minutes of listening, I was incredibly relaxed with a lasting sensation of well-being... no concerns or thought crowded my mind, firmly in the present as opposed to being under the influence of memory or worries about the future... completely located in the now, with intense clarity, and deeper crispness of visual perception and thought". Mike was a sound-wizard who was at least 30 years ahead of the curve.

Rest In Peace Michael Mantra 1950 - 2014. You will never be forgotten. You made the world a far better place for so many of us, and your teachings continue to give solace to thousands. ~ R. Modell 2016

Echospace pays homage to Michael Mantra with the collaboration SEA SHELL CITY, a long ambient piece, originally in three parts. The sea definitely makes a sonic appearance in the “Morning” section, as waves of sound mimic a lazy day at the shore, with the high synths acting as sunbeams. This music allows you to bask in it, as it warms you and stays a long time. But a different warmth appears in the “Afternoon” section, as the tones draw out even further and layer to form sustained chords. The final movement, “Evening,” brings the notes down several octaves and amps up the sound of a continual water flow, rather than the grow and ebb of the ocean. The water sounds cut out entirely for brief moments, but always return. A lovely float in an aquatic dreamscape.
