Here is an improvisation played on alto recorder in the pentatonic scale. Music Therapist Christine Stevens calls the major pentatonic scale the solar scale, while the minor pentatonic scale is lunar. I like these descriptions, and this improv evokes the sun and moon using these scales. You’ll hear the Egg of Creation shaker as well.
I hope you enjoy this relaxing improvisation! Please feel free to share your thoughts!
A seagull soars above the beach
In search of fresh and fragrant fish
Or maybe crispy, crunchy chips!
You can’t avoid his dive and reach!
So, as your skin the sun does bleach,
Beware of seagulls flying high!
Their home is in expansive sky,
And yet they do approach the land,
Perhaps to steal what’s in our hands
To soar again in sheer delight!
These are my personal instruments; this review is not sponsored in any way. I enjoy incorporating these rattles, shakers, and Harmony Balls into sound healing, musical accompaniment, meditations, and spoken-word poetry.
