New meditative piano music composed by New York artist after brain injury.
New York (PRWEB) November 01, 2015
Karen Salicath Jamali has been a professional artist for the last 30 years, living and working in New York City. It wasn’t until after an accident four years ago that caused a brain injury that Karen started to play music. Previously unable to play the piano, the brain injury amazingly opened up a new world for Karen, as she began to play beautiful and meditative music.
On October 30th, she releases Singing Universe, a collection of seven compositions each recorded in one take. Tracks include: Soul Resting; Oktober; Summer Sun; Awakening; Angel Tear; Universe; and Rain. This is her fifth CD released this year.
The songs could be used as meditation music, as they will put the listener into a relaxed state of consciousness. The accident that occurred four years ago caused Karen to have a near-death experience. After a long recovery, she began to hear music all the time. She decided to record and play what she was experiencing. The result is a beautiful collection of piano music that is emotional, relaxing and enchanting. When she had the accident, she awakened her musical brain, as it has opened up a world of new music for the visual artist, who can now express herself visually as a sculptor, painter and photographer, but also audibly as a pianist and composer.
As a visual artist, Karen has permanent work displayed in the Jamali Gallery in Soho, New York, as well as numerous galleries internationally. She has received many awards and honors for her artwork, including an Oscar in Art. Her artworks are emotive, evoking a connection with the viewer to reach a deeper understanding, while her music is sublime.
The CD Singing Universe will take you on a relaxing and meditative journey with Karen, who has only been playing piano for 18 months, but already creates a beautiful narrative with her music. After turning her injury into an incredibly positive and moving experience, Karen Salicath Jamali has created something special with Singing Universe.
