Christopher Wilts - Plants & Hearts [Room 40 - 2007]Plants and Hearts is 21 minute ep that easers the listener into calming almost weightless waters of ambient guitar drone audio soothing.
It claims to feature 4hz isochronic pulses and panning at the same frequency, that works to encourage the formation of 4hz brainwave patterns associated with states of meditation, deep relaxation, enhanced creativity, light sleep and lucid dreaming, and it also comes with a warning: “this recording may cause dizziness and a sense of vertigo. You are advised not to drive while listening to this music.” I have to say it did'nt really affect my gravity or ability to do anything , I’ve cooked a few times with it on and still have all my fingers and other bits still attached, but I guess it’s a nice marketing ploy and hell it might work on some. For my self I found it a soothing and unravelling ambient adventure that does general have a nice relaxing vibe, as Willits pulls you deeper and deeper into the rich harmonic drones and hums of sound, it comes in a clear plastic sleeve with brain like graphics.
A nice audio shoulder rub and stress releaser which will certainly make me want to check out some of Willits other work as he has managers to capture his own take on ambience.Roger Batty
