posted by Matthew Corbett

Hall of Famer and 15-time All Star Tony Gwynn, who passed away on June 16th, was more than just a remarkable hitter; he embodied the qualities of sportsmanship, humility, and excitement that make baseball such a great American sport. Gwynn played 20 seasons (1982-2001) for the San Diego Padres and never hit below .309 in any full season.

Song of the New Earth DVD is Creating Buzz

Song of the New Earth DVD Cover

A new, feature documentarySong of the New Earth, features the ardent quest of sound healer, psychotherapist and sonic shaman Tom Kenyon to integrate modern science and ancient mysticism through the power of sound.  His rare ability to brilliantly decipher the healing science of sound results in a mesmerizing, and transformational film.

Song of the New Earth made its World Premiere at the 40th Annual Seattle International Film Festival to a sold out audience and was an official selection of the Illuminate Film Festival in Sedona last week.

The award winning production team features Director Ward Serrill, Editor Eric Frith and New York Times animator Drew Christie and Producer Betsy Chasse.

Song of the New Earth provides viewers with a distinctive and intimate portrait of Kenyon’s quirky yet rare talent—as a self proclaimed neo-pagan – Taoist – Tibetan Buddhist – agnostic – quantum physicist – mystic— he transcends conventional musical forms by chanting or “toning” using his nearly four octave range voice that takes audiences on sound journeys to deeper states of consciousness.

As an aspiring country musician, Tom Kenyon was on way to fame and fortune when a series of mystical experiences rocked his world. Desperate to understand his experience, he fervently dove into the study of Neurophysiology to explore his unexplainable spiritual insights and became an expert in the world’s spiritual traditions; Tibetan Buddhism, Yoga, Taoism, mystical Christianity, Shamanism, and Egyptian alchemy and more.

From his home in the San Juan Islands to Tibetan nunneries in the Himalayas, from cathedrals and mysterious caves in southern France to the golden-chandeliered symphony halls of Vienna, Song of the New Earth explores the cutting edge scientific research proving that sound shifts brain states and can promote dramatic healing not only for ourselves but for our precious planet earth.

Often with his wife Judi by his side, Kenyon explains how sound vibration speaks to our souls and bodies by opening a door that bridges our cognitive thinking; catapulting us towards often discovering the miraculous. A transcendent, celestial experience, this unique film transports viewers through Kenyon’s divine gift.

Song of the New Earth will be released on DVD November 2014. To view the exclusive trailer click here.

How to Train a Dragon 2

When How to Train Your Dragon took audiences by surprise in 2010 by how great the film was, there was surely no surprise at all when Jeffrey Katzenberg announced that there would be a sequel.

The soundtrack of How to Train Your Dragon 2 carries the lives of these characters and helps reinforce a great story. The film is very mature yet the sound is very balanced and helps level things out.

“Dragon Racing”, is the first track and is without a doubt five minutes that will not disappoint. Everything is grand about this song – the choir, the orchestra, the lyrics are all captivating and set a great tone for soundtrack. The hits just keep on coming through the album – there isn’t a dull moment.

This soundtrack succeeds the second, as it has the ability to tell the film’s story without even watching the movie. It’s all very cinematic, at various points, it’s almost like watching the movie again. There is undoubtefully moments where you can tell exactly what’s supposed to be happening on-screen. The music is so powerful and has raised the bar for future sequels and soundtracks.
