Lou Reed: Hudson River Wind Meditations

1. Product Details

I first composed this music for myself as an adjunctto meditation, Tai Chi, and bodywork, and as music to play in the background oflife, to replace the everyday cacophony with new and ordered sounds of anunpredictable nature. New sounds freed from preconception. ... over time, friends who heard the music asked if I could make them copies. I then wrote twomore pieces with the same intent: to relax the body, mind, and spirit andfacilitate meditation. " - Lou Reed Light in the Attic Records in cooperation with LaurieAnderson and the Lou Reed Archive, proudly announces a definitive re-release ofHudson River Wind Meditations, the pioneering artist's final solo album. Originally released in 2007, the deeply personal project combines Reed's loveof creating drone music with his passion for Tai Chi, yoga and meditation. Thealbum's ambient soundscapes have been described as a counterpoint to hisintense Metal Machine Music album-but they are similar outliers in Reed's 40+year exploration of drone music and feedback harmonics. The album has been remastered by the GRAMMY®-nominatedengineer John Baldwin with vinyl pressed at Record Technology Inc. (RTI). TheDouble LP set is presented in a gatefold jacket designed by GRAMMY®-winningartist, Masaki Koike and features new liner notes by renowned Yoga instructorand author, Eddie Stern, who guided Reed's practice for years. Also included inthe physical editions is a fascinating conversation conducted earlier this yearbetween author/journalist Jonathan Cott (Rolling Stone, The New Yorker) andReed's wife, artist Laurie Anderson, who discusses the album, as well as herhusband's devotion to Tai Chi - one of the album's primary inspirations. Hudson River Wind Meditations marks the latest release inLITA's Lou Reed Archival Series. Launched in 2022 in tandem with the lateartist's 80th birthday, the ongoing series has celebrated one of America's mostinfluential songwriters through such acclaimed collections as Words &Music, May 1965 featuring many of Reed's earliest (and previously-unreleased)recordings, including the earliest-known versions of "I'm Waiting for the Man"and "Pale Blue Eyes.
