Oed-und-leer-das-Meer-Cover-Art-1450pxA few months back we highlighted a new track by Vaani featuring SOLON aka Matt Singmin. This month we have a beautiful track released by SOLON and The Future Sound of Yoga called Oed und leer das Meer. The track is perfect for yoga however it is equally as perfect for meditation.

The title is a quote from a passage
in the Wasteland by T.S. Eliot:

-Yet when we came back, late, from the Hyacinth garden,
Your arms full, and your hair wet, I could not
Speak, and my eyes failed, I was neither
Living nor dead, and I knew nothing,
Looking into the heart of light, the silence.
Oed und leer das Meer.

The German phrase translates as: “Void and desolate the sea” – a metaphor for the empty landscape of the mind in meditation.

The track was composed specifically for savasana, but can equally be used for meditation, pranayama or just switching off.

SOLON will be playing the track at this week’s Future Sound of Yoga events at Sydney’s Paddington Uniting Church – he often composes his tracks with this venue in mind – the high ceiling and resonance of the space take certain kinds of tracks to another level – so if you want to experience the track in the space for which it was intended, check out the event details at his website.

SOLON has made the track available for free for a limited time so head over to SOLON’s website and download it onto your iPod or PC.
