This eleven-track album presents the major music that enlivened the Brain Art Festival presented by Ilchi Lee at Radio City Music Hall on August 15, 2009. The Brain Art Festival was a uniquely synergistic combination of Lee’s interactive lecture and stimulating music, exquisite visual arts, and heart-pounding dance performances. The Festival presented a dynamic and joyous celebration of the human brain and its infinite potential through creative expression of original music, inspirational messages, and dynamic movement.
The highlight of this super-charged healing adventure was Brain Wave Vibration, a simple yet innovative training method that unites body and mind. Through music composed especially for this titillating event, the 4,000 people present shook their blues away and learned the value of their brains and their importance to the planet’s health. They enjoyed an unforgettable exhibition of the power of the brain’s creative spirit and capacity for change.
The music on this album runs the gamut from soothing flutes to stimulating and energizing traditional Korean drumming. Its healing sounds capture the experience of the Brain Art Festival 2009 for all listeners.
“The ultimate use of the human brain is to create one’s own life. If you meet your brain and unleash your brain’s infinite creative potential, your life becomes art.”
