– Music Design in Review
From Richard Shulman: First Rites is a collaboration with Healing Touch Practitioners to create music for healing. First Rites musically expressed a process of letting go and healing which I believe is necessary for individuals in the creation of a compassionate and harmonious society. At first, I had serious reservations about releasing First Rites to the public, thinking that I had ‘stolen from myself’. Eventually I came to the realization that the Divine had moved through me and my collaborators in this healing work, that it had been a healing force among us, and that the music could support individuals in their healing and in the reawakening of their own heart’s dreams.
