Rain Forest Music . Unknown Submit Tempo.

Rain Forest Music was originally released in 1981 but still stands the test of time. This version of the album was the same as the LP, which used local rainfall and birds from the Houston Zoo. Emmanuel utilised Continuous Tape Looping, a technique borrowed from Terry Riley, Robert Fripp and Brian Eno. He apparently used two reel-to-reel tape decks placed about a foot apart and set at different distances to control the loop timing and all the while, adding and fading out new music. He used the Crumar Organ as the only instrument and some different riffs and themes as it developed.

Sound Paintings, 1980, the Original Cassette Album with first version of Rain Forest Music and a mix of electronics on side 2. The title was created to reflect the ability of the mind to use music as a channel for imagery. These are my first year electronic music experiments which includes the first published version of Rain Forest which later became the foundation of the LP, Rain Forest Music. My music style is to first create a foundation using cyclic, poly rhythmic music, then build several layers of improvised leads and rhythms that allows you to transcend time and space.

A few months Aguirre released Joel Vandroogenbroeck’s first solo effort Biomechanoid, an outstanding dark electronic ambient album. Vol. 1 and Vol. 2. In these library music albums the emphasis lies on his flute talents, paired with some great moogy electronics and mellow pre-new age ambience. Both volumes still stand after all these years and prove Joel’s ability to create wonderful library albums. Think Klaus Schulze, Harmonia, JD Emmanuel and Joanna Brouk.

Rain and surf, gifts from Mother Nature.

B-Side: Imagine being on a cliff overlooking the ocean. It is early morning. As the sun breaks the water you begin moving to the rhythm of the music and ocean.

This music can be used for deep relaxation, meditation and as background for massage and counseling. Side two is particularly nice as background for movement, exercise, dance and T'ai Chi.

J. D. Emmanuel may be contacted for live performances and to share workshops on his research with music in relation to stress, meditation, altered states, and as a medium for counseling and physical therapy.
