Life In Balance is a Pittsburgh-based nationally touring and recording duo committed to merging sacred musical instruments and current technologies to create a transformative, integrated sonic environments. Two key components of our performances are Sound Healing Meditations which focus on the inbreath, and Dance/Music Concerts through hypno-global rhythms (focusing on the outbreath).
Since 1998, we have been touring consistently - from Anchorage to Key West; from the Delaware beaches to Denver and cities in between. Life In Balance has a strong nation-wide following. May 2010's Long Wow Tour took us across the country from Florida, along the deep South, into Santa Fe and over the Rockies. Finishing in the Midwest, we played and connected with nearly 1000 people during our four-week trek.
For over a decade, we have grown and cultivated our audience and added venues by connecting with liked-minded groups and individuals throughout the country. Our success is measured by the connections we make with the listeners not only our CD sales.
Life In Balance music is heard all over the world. We are in heavy rotation on radio shows and have been featured in the ?Living Room Concert? series on the National Public Radio program ?ECHOES.? Our music has been aired on the syndicated radio show "Music From The Hearts of Space,? as well as many Internet radio stations like Astreaux World and Ambient US.
Life In Balance has composed themes and background music for the International Sculptural Society and dance groups, film/video, and over 20 meditation and healing CDs/DVDs. We have appeared on both local and national television/radio programming performing in hundreds of venues, some big in size others big in spirit. The most important venues are the ones in which telepathy and magic happens, where lasting impressions are made.
Life In Balance defines ?sound? as a relaxation, meditative and healing modality. Our original music synthesis of New Age, Ambient and Electronic; it is a hybridization of these elements with early influences from Fripp and Eno, Kraftwerk, Tangerine Dream and Peter Gabriel.
