Threading the Ether: The Music of Steven Chesne

Music review

An elegant accompaniment to yoga, massage, relaxation.

by The Luminous World Orchestra

The music is experiential — an elegant accompaniment to yoga, massage, relaxation — but also rich and complex for focused listening by true music lovers.

The symphony orchestra rings breadth, depth and richness. Chesne’s addition of exotic instruments from around the world — Chinese Erhu fiddle, Native American flute, Celtic pennywhistle, Balinese Gamelan gongs, Indian Sarangi, Japanese Shakuhachi and others — bring texture, dimension and evocative imagery. In addition, the orchestra is joined by a heavenly choir singing ancient, profound Sanskrit chants.
