HANG SESSIONS is based around an amazing instrument called the "Hang". Produced in Switzerland for only a few years the Hang instrument combines elements of both Gamelan gongs and Steel Drums. A series of scales were made for the instrument that produces amazing tones. Keyboardist, Producer and Writer Mark Rechler & Percussionist/Drummer George Hooks layered the Hangs often looping and occasionally processing them through effects. And proceeded to build songs around those loops as a framework. To further inspire the direction of the pieces they scored the music to Yoga Flow videos and worked with instructors on what they are looking for in inspiring yet hip music for a classes. This scenario set up a framework where the music start meditationally and builds in tempo and intensity throughout and than brings you down perfectly again for shivasana or ultimate relaxation.
