Acoustic true vibration music, which is all about life in a poetic and passionate way. It's not polished, but perfect as it is - in its imperfection and uniqueness. Lots of different sounds and tunes, talking and singing in different languages. Life and music: it's good to keep both natural and real. Dedicated to the generous nature of the universe and the ancestors, who look after us.

Time Temple: Reflections (1989)
The music on this CD is ambient music to slow down and to enjoy being in the moment, being in a time temple...
The improvisations, played mainly in eastern scales on acoustic instruments, create a peaceful and meditative atmosphere. The different pieces are reflections of different moods, ever changing with the flow of life.
Improvised music is an authentic free flow of energy and vibration in the present moment and thus the creation of an instant composition by the Spirit. The music has been been recorded in 1988 in West Cork, Ireland.
This CD is similar to the Time Temple - Present Moments CD, but played on various different instruments.
Thomas Wiegandt: Harp-zither, percussion
Jeremy Baines: Flutes, ocarinas, bells, euklang, hooveridoo

Time Temple: Present Moments - Ambient Zen Music for Harp (1988)
Relaxing and time dissolving eastern sounding Zen harp music to enjoy the present moment whatever you might be doing...
This purely acoustic music has been composed and played by Thomas Wiegandt on a beautifully sounding one hundred year old harp zither.
In his own words: "This music has been inspired by Japanese Zen music played on a zither called the Koto. As I did not have a Koto, I used a Bavarian harp-zither, which had been built in 1903 by Kerschensteiner for my great-grandfather Heinrich Reuss."
The improvisations played in different scales and moods represent the flow and change of the everlasting and timeless Now. These tracks have been recorded in 1988 in West Cork, Ireland and finally have been transferred to CD in 2004. Enjoy!
The CD has 16 tracks with a total playing time of 50:38
Feedback: “I like the CD very very much - and am listening to it right now. (all day actually).” (Aranos - Czech musician living in Ireland)
