Brainscapes by Alain Eskinasi and Jim Wafer


Alain Eskinasi and Jim Wafer's Brainscapes is an electronic album consisting largely of didgeridoo and synth pads. I thought it seemed like a fascinating idea to combine the natural drone of the didgeridoo with synth drones, and this album does it pretty well. There's a little bit of tribal-style percussion for momentum. I listen to the album as a single track, although I don't recall whether the CD was divided into separate tracks or not.

I could only find this tiny version of the original cover:

I could have easily reimplemented it with some abstract art, but I just didn't think the original cover reflected the music. I don't know that my new version reflects the music any better, but meditation candles seemed appropriate.

I didn't spend any time on this, I just searched for "meditation" or something like that, and took the first photo that caught my eye. I know that the didgeridoo has no relation relationship to Buddha, but I did like the photograph and the overall mood seemed to fit.
