Steven Halpern

Steve Halpern is the original new age artist, in the most accurate sense of the term. In 1975 he released Spectrum Suite, his first album of music specifically designed for relaxation and healing. Before that, Halpern had been immersed in the New York City jazz scene as a trumpeter and guitarist. His disgust at the adverse effects of life in the fast lane were accentuated by a move to California, where he perfected his idea of "anti-frantic alternative" music. Based partly on his metaphysical beliefs and partly on more solid scientific research into the effects of sound on the human body, he came to the conclusion that the Western foundation of tension and release in music couldn't by nature provide listeners with relief from stress. He decided the answer was to create music that "didn't go anywhere" in the traditional sense but instead immersed the listener in a positive atmosphere conducive to recuperative and transcendental experiences. Halpern created music that was centered largely around cascades of major-key arpeggios improvised at the electric piano, and he added generous helpings of reverb to create a spacey, other-worldly feeling. He took a certain amount of inspiration from oriental classical music and looked into the ceremonial, magical, and healing aspects of sound used by ancient cultures. While some of his ideas take on the pseudo-science pallor of new-age mysticism, Halpern's importance as one of the true fathers of modern meditational and healing forms of music cannot be overemphasized. He has released over 50 instrumental and guided-meditation recordings, some of which are better than others. He has also written two books on his theories: Tuning the Human Instrument and Sound Health. ~ Linda Kohanov, Rovi

Steve Halperin music was some of the first I used in learning meditation and relaxation. It is probably used with the "mindfulness of today. It is the very best. I wish it was used more. It was magnificent with Emmitt Miller's work. He is definitely a big 10.
I like Lake Suite. I only hear calm wind' whistling through my ear and a beautiful sparkling lake, seeming to form heaven

Love this station - helps me to relax. I used Steven's CD's to help me and my kids sleep at night. My favorite is gifts of the angles.
that means..I can relate.
Steve is just alright!

Have been listening to Stephen Halpern since the 70ies THE guy for relaxation and meditation - my favourites Ancient Echoes and Gift of Angels but love them all why aren't all,of them on this station - please????
I discovered Spectrum Suite in 1980 and have used Steven's music thru all my most trying moments and deep meditations since then. This is my go to guy for all things healing and balancing...
I love his music. 1976 is when I first heard him and It saved my life in a way......... . . . . .
Why is the Comfort Zone album not here? Two Steven Halpern albums and not Comfort Zone? The seminal, iconic, defining relaxation release of the 1980s? Inexplicable .
This music remind me so much of the hours my sister (rip) spent at the piano effortlessly creating the exact same sounds.

This guy writes good music, very relaxing

'86 started listening. Helped me fall asleep for years! Thanks Pandora.
i love playing beautiful piano music like this
whatever he plays, I find his music beautiful and healing.
Saved my sanity in the eighties, trying again
I started listening to Halpern in 1987. I have not stopped.

Bought the Spectrum suite in 1975 from the artist directly. at a new age fair. I've used the music as medicine ever since
this music as well as others have a calming effect not only on people but animals
I'm kind of shocked that Pandora only has two of his albums and no bio considering his history in the genre. I started listening to New Age music because of him, back in the 80's. Guess Pandora has some strengths and some weaknesses. Still, glad they have a couple albums by him anyway.
our dogs love it!

Hadn't heard this before & lOVE IT! When I saw who the artist is no wonder! Steven was my hypnobirthin g music....... Peaceful & Calming all the way through. Love this. Beautiful - Enjoy! Thank you Pandora 8-)

I started listening to Steve in '92...like most of his material, as long it's not TOO spacey...now this classical guitar/synth combo is nice.
Wow what a guy. Meditative and will anticipate more.

my first experience with Steven Halperns music/enviro n m e n t was back in the late 70s in Big Sur. A perfect introduction . Always a peaceful harmonizing experience.

Steven Halpern, along with Jon Anderson (of Yes fame) has guided me into what I know to be true about the power of music to heal AND inspire--and while my style of music is more likely to be along the lines of where Jon tends to go, lyrically speaking (because the power of the Word is just as important--a s Word is Sound in alphabetical form), my intention is nothing more or less than what these two men have done: bring healing and inspiration through music.

Steven Halpern's music imparts to me a sense of well-being and calm. It is comforting and healing. A true gift to listeners.
As a C.M.T. I came across Halpern's "Dawn". It relaxed and put people asleep so fast that i couldn't use it for those returning to work. I later began meditating to it and sleeping to it. Just read other comments - you know what I mean...Tamu

i was listening to pandora radio on line and caught a song of steven halpern. wow. beautiful.
When I was breeding Maltese puppies, I used S. Halpern's music to calm the pups down for naptime, as well as Dean Evenson & Mozart.

love to meditate to his music..inner l i g h t t e a c h i n g . c o m

I have been using his music for years...in my massage practice, during labor, nursing colicky babies...hea l i n g after an auto accident, the list goes on and on...he has done more than one CD, Greg. Just Google his website. You will have a field day!!!
mumzie
Google him ... he has many albums... I have just about all of them...
I love his music and wish he had done more than one cd.
tyiam
Love his music for many years..
I have listened to this artist very often. I also listen to his music while recuperating from illnesses and surgeries. It is relaxing, positive and peaceful.
If Steven said that his music doesn't "go anywhere," then I may have to take him to some of the places I've been while listening to Spectrum Suite! It is my music that isn't going anywhere!
Love this artist and his music. Every time I've had surgery, I've had the surgeon play his music while he operates. I honestly think it helps me to heal faster....
Thanks Steven.
this is instead a comment on the reviewer's prejudices and vapid stupidity - as if Linda Kohanov's intellectual skepticism is equivalent to intelligence (which it is not).
lilliansbln
To Steven Halpern and all of us who listen ..i thr Individual Dweller has been inspired by these sounds ...will you and good listeners... i n c l u d i
hey, this guy is good. Different than what I listen to on a regular basis, but still very good. 4 and a half stars.
roxiedog909
One the Greats, can!t get to much of this sound and its soothing effects.
"I was blown away" the first time I heard Steven Halpern Play In Person.... it was in a huge pyramid-shap e d - b u i l d i n g - - - t h e sanctuary of a large New Age Church in Houston, Tx. in 1982....This Pianist was Personable too, as he spent time talking with the listeners after his concert. I have many of his cd's and will now purchase this serene sounding "Lake Suite".
Thank you Pandora, for giving me this "walk down memory lane", Ruby.

This is a happy day for me - rediscoverin g this artist I listened to (Spectrum Suite) in the 70's - 80's. Now as a composer/son g w r i t e r (since 2003) I use Pandora to expand my listening repetoire. Untutored in the matters of music classificati o n and genres, I am learning by listening. Thank you Pandora for illuminating the music timeline that underlies our connection with a sense of history. JT

Wow, now this is creative genius at work. Who would have been able to view such awesome music as the Jazz scene with such clarity of vision matched with an understandin g of the socio-psycho l o g i c a l needs of the human being to be "re-tuned" to the music of nature? While Jazz undeniably feeds one kind of soul, the sound and rhythm that has more and more eluded the contemporary culture as they delve further into their pursuit of being the least connected to the natural rhythms and the most "plugge
