Legendary percussionist Byron Metcalf's Inner Rhythm Meditations Vol II continues the immersive journey into hypnotic rhythms and haunting melodic textures which he began on the critically acclaimed, award-nominated 2016 album Inner Rhythm Meditations - Music for Expanded Awareness and Inspired Movement. Once again joined by noted sound sculptor Erik Wøllo & world-class flutist Peter Phippen, Metcalf explores a haunting landscape that gravitates between pulsing sensuality and drifting contemplation. Inner Rhythm Meditations Vol II is a deeper exploration of the dynamic interplay between the energetic and the subtle - sometimes vibrant, sometimes spacious. The seven tracks perfectly portray the exquisite dance that can occur between stillness and motion, each trait coalescing into the other at times, but also each venturing into their own unique sonic landscape. A profoundly meditative listening experience, this album presents an opportunity to journey inward while also providing a backdrop for movement through space. In this way, Inner Rhythm Meditations Vol II is the best of both worlds in the genre of music for reflection and contemplation.
