A Bilateral Christmas 

A Studio395 release (2020)

This recording project combines the beauty of music for solo lute with familiar and beloved carols of the Christmas season - but with a twist. The music on this recording features the use of bilateral sound. 


"The use of bilateral sound helps a person move from a state of dysregulation into a regulated state in the brain and body.  A Bilateral Christmas is recorded with hand panning, alternating the sound into the right ear and then into the left ear.  This music is lovely and soothing by itself, and with the bilateral sound it can enhance self-soothing, relaxation, and preparation for sleep, as well as enhancing mental focus and creativity.  A Bilateral Christmas can be used personally to meditate and decompress, manage anxious and reactive moments, as well as to enhance and deepen psychological processing of anxiety, depression, and trauma in psychotherapy with a psychotherapist trained in Brainspotting and EMDR, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing."
