“A chakra is a whirling vortex of energy at the conjunction point of the mind and the body.”
CHAKRA LOUNGE is the first Italian original project of lounge music originated thanks to the collaboration between Maximus, an artist internationally known for his new age production for over ten years, and Peter and Paul Micioni, producers, DJs and pop and dance music composers.
The ancient doctrine of Chakras, according to which every human being can achieve a state of perfect harmony within him/herself and with the universe around him/her, has inspired the CHAKRA LOUNGE project.
Without lingering in the meanings and teachings of oriental philosophy the main idea was simply to convey a feeling of well-being to the listener.
Following the style of many lounge and chill-out productions and the trend of the new ‘café’, ‘bar’, ‘lounge’ and ‘supper’ albums CHAKRA LOUNGE is dedicated to an audience searching new sounds and rhythms that without being aggressive can infuse a pleasure for life and good company.
Maximus is a composer, keyboard player, opera singer graduated at the Florence Music Academy and expert of music technology. After classical music studies he acquired a long artistic experience in pop and computer music. At the beginning of the 90’s he started the project Maximus & Felix. Together the two composers realized three albums of instrumental music, a single CD, one mix and over 20 compilations in Italy and abroad including prestigious artists such as Brian Eno, Kitaro, Yanni, Tangerine Dream, Suzanne Ciani, etc…
Peter Micioni is a composer and musician on the pop and dance music scene from many years. He has been a successful DJ and as a composer together with his brother, the producer Paul Micioni, he arranged music and produced many Italian pop and dance artists selling over ten million records in the world.
The two artists Maximus and Peter Micioni together are the No Noise, the duo that kicked off the CHAKRA LOUNGE project signing six of the tracks included in the compilation.
The other artists of CHAKRA LOUNGE are: Ensemble Ethnique a band that wrote and performed four songs of oriental inspiration and Mediterranean flavour; the young duo Cafè 24h that contributed to diversify the musical selection with the track ‘Saint Maurice’.
This compilation reminds of the variety of colours and elements of the chakra points exploring different musical worlds and creating unusual syntonies in a sequence compiled and mixed by Marco Fullone, DJs at Montecarlo Nights (a cult radio programme dedicated to new trends in music broadcast by Radio Montecarlo).
