Above & Beyond tap meditative vibrations for their latest edition of Flow State, unexpectedly out today. Almost two years have passed since the original Flow State album released and now the next chapter has arrived — Flow State: Healing With Nature.
Guided by soft yet powerful vocals from Elena Brower, the ambient album opens up with intent and goes on to feature various calming sounds recorded from nature itself — “Rain,” “Wind,” “Night” and “Winter” — accentuated by delicate melodics signature of Above & Beyond.
One third of the trio, Paavo Siljamäki shares his personal experience with COVID-19 and how he made the best out of isolation:
Fortunately, I had the opportunity to travel to my forest hideout in Finland, where I could truly disconnect from the world’s happenings. I could heal in nature, away from it all. I stopped reading world news and instead of feeling disconnected, I found myself truly connected with nature, living a very simple life that felt more fulfilling each day.
I began recording the sounds of nature at different times of the day and in different weather. I found these recordings healing, inspiring and calming. Taking them to my studio, I wanted to share this feeling with the world. So, I made these meditation tools to help others connect with nature, even those of us living a more urban lifestyle.
