Sambodhi Prem’s introduction to his newly released album: “When I made the music of Buddha Universe I was thinking of nothing… I have found over the years that if I’m in such a space, the music comes, then all I do is capture it.”
Some say the universe is made of music… I’m not sure if that is true, but here on earth sounds are everywhere and they are perhaps more deeply embedded than we know.
Travelling back, what a blessed time it would have been when our once inorganic earth slowly became an organic one, with living beings creating a myriad of sounds. Sounds to signal, to get important messages across and sounds to express the joys and sorrows of life.
We humans and particularly the musicians amongst us, follow in that tradition: signalling, expressing, listening and creating.
Now you can have access to all of the world’s music for the cost of two cups of coffee per month. What abundance! And what a time to be a listener! I think this is all happening because nature, in its abundance, likes to surround itself with sound and we humans like to mimic her.
When I made the music of Buddha Universe I was thinking of nothing… I have found over the years that if I’m in such a space, the music comes, then all I do is capture it. My music is for turning in. Oh, and by the way, check out the saxophone solo on ‘On the Brink’ by the incredible Paul McCandless.

Sambodhi Prem likes to create music to disappear into… to let sounds become silence in such a way that a listener can travel into meditation with his music. He likes to make the journey of meditation a joyous one.
