The latest live East Forest record titled prana is now available for pre-order exclusively here at EastForest.org in the Music section.
We are proud to have the cover art provided by the famed artist Ross Bleckner who is gracing us with his painting Falling Birds II.
prana was recorded and improvised completely live during a sound healing ceremony over the winter solstice of 2012 in deep southern Utah performed in an old underground silo. It was about 10 degrees below zero outside and I was set up next to a giant wood stove, standing on a slate stone floor with about 25 people in the room.
Track 5 preview “Vyana”:
prana was completely funded by a select group of our community and we would like to thank them from the bottom of our hearts for helping gift this recording to the world:
Wrote this song in the practice den the other day and thought I’d share in the process. It’s called, “Symbols and Signs”.

A friend Michael Highland has created a minimalist interactive video game intended to “evoke feelings of being a child. There is no way to win, and likewise, no way to lose.” It uses East Forest music (with Thacher Schmid on strings) and is even named after an EF song off Music Meditations! Play and download via the link or watch a video of game play below (but resist watching the video if you want to download and play!).
As you enter into the Winter Solstice here is a live track (from our 12-12-12 new moon event) to help you dive deep, stay on track, and kick start the new year right. The force is with you. Good luck. See you on the flip side…
