By Adham Shaikh

Much of the material on Resonance was born from Shaikh’s extensive work scoring original soundtracks for varied film and TV productions, including projects for National Geographic, Disney (Sacred Planet), Canada’s National Film Board (Fierce Light), and Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (Secrets: A Parent’s Guide to the Teen Sexual Revolution, for which he earned a Leo Award nomination for Best Musical Score in a Documentary Program).

Over a period of three years, Shiakh worked on several films, amassing a collection of tracks quite different from his previous several albums. On some, inspired by his work on a Yoga for Cancer Survivors project, Shaikh intentionally sought to incorporate healing elements, “encoding” sacred geometry, the Fibonacci sequence and devotional chants from the Far East into his compositions. He observed forms in nature, using them as a basis for creating healing patterns based on natural growth systems. The collection elicited such an overwhelmingly positive response from colleagues, teachers, students, healers, yoga practitioners and parents (who reported the music’s calming effect on their children), that he decided it needed to be released. Its dreamy, exotic ambience sounds as fresh today as it did when first released in 2010, and Black Swan Sounds is proud to re-introduce this classic work to the public once again.
