Meditation Music Background
Meditation music can be used a way of providing for the focused mental state which is the basic goal of meditation, whether as a spiritual/religious or a mental health/stress relief practice. In this regard, music for meditation might be performed by the meditating people themselves, or listened to via recording. Meditative music might also be eschewed altogether, according to preference.
Meditation Music to Relax
Meditation music to relax with has been created by a number of composers, based on the high levels of interests expressed by people from Western backgrounds in the subject of meditation over the course of the 20th century. The famous avant-garde composer John Cage, for example, was inspired by the Buddhist tradition of Zen meditation.
