Miles Cooper Seaton "Functional Music" (2xCD)

15.00

Functional Music by Miles Cooper Seaton (founding member of Akron Family) is a 2xCD set of only two 40 minute pieces of deep drones released by our good friends at Jacknife Records and Tapes in Los Angeles. It goes without saying that this music is immersive and transportative as a result of its basic elements, but it is also meant for a higher intention.

A great video about the project is below as well as a bandcamp link where you can hear the music.

Gatefold CD cover includes liner notes, a visualization prompt and yoga sequence for each piece.

You can read about the album and Miles in general by visiting his website, and here is some info lifted from there:

"I have always been drawn to what I have started to delineate as "functional music". Whether this is Satie's musique d'ameublement or the ritual music of religious sects or cults, music or sound that is free of an impassioned personal narrative has made up the bulk of my listening for much of my life. There is something perfect about the sound that serves a specific divine mission or carries and feeds and nurtures any narrative or purpose that may be assigned to it; something perfect about the sound that asks nothing and exists only to give. This music's potency is derived from the fact that it is made for others rather than its maker. Without a doubt, the cathartic expression in Bob Dylan's songs have their power and place – the personal always has the potential to be a more pure reflection of the universal – but there is a kind of purity to music that wants to do something for the listener, that wishes only to be of use.

These pieces are music for relaxing, for expanding, for wandering, for unfurling.

They are music to breathe to."
