These albums are a production of the RPM community. By banning together, sharing ideas and encouragement, and above all, a non-judgemental listening ear, they were produced by nearly 2,000 people -- who without would have never been possible.

Concept didjeridu album that explores many different styles of the instrument including traditional and modern solos, meditation, and electronic. This is an album for you to put your headphones on and just feel it. It is in the experience not the entertainment. I hope you understand.
An exploration of the spirits that existed to many ancient civilizations. Not gods or deities, but natural spirits that were personified.
Traditional versus modern, old versus new, acoustic versus electric. Side A is opposing Side B, the Unplugged vs the Plugged.
Dusk/Dawn - From sunset to sunrise, a live piece consisting of two movements. The first, Dusk, is a 40 minute continuous didj song played on two didjs (switched underneath the gongs) with drums, shakers, and other noise makers. Dawn is a multi-track two part piece on didj and spirit flute with vocals.
Music mainly from the first half of RPM 2010. Lots of emotion over a difficult time in my life manifested as flute music. Lots of it. This disk has a lot of guests.

Days - Lakshmi Pariah vocals

Morning - Lakshmi Pariah on vocals
Trying - Lakshmi Pariah, Will Meil, Joseph Gao - vocals

This is a collection of 8 live solos played on different instruments ranging from common ones such as guitar(yes that's Holst's Jupiter) this and strange ones such as fipple pipe and ho ho. In some I am quite accomplished in others, not so much, but this about making them do something that I am feeling and using some of them in solos is difficult. The bonus tracks are a percussion track all on bamboo, a modern electric track featuring an ocean harp, and the last features various flutes in a fully instrumented song.
