John Now and Michael Mantra - Sonic Transform: Brain Hemisphere Harmonic Feeling (Tranquil Technology)

This is an ambient cassette, featuring crashing waves, lots of static, crashing waves of static, and the occasional monotone electronic drone. According to the packaging, "Sonic Transform is an audio tool for ... transform[ing] negative yin emotions to ... positive yang emotions."

Unfortunately, I'm either too naturally loaded with yang to really notice any change in my own outlook on life after listening to this, but I suppose if you're dark, moody, and chock full of that bad yin stuff, this could probably be a good thing for you to get into. I also have a really short attention span, so any song longer than, say, five minutes is hard for me to get and stay into, and this whole cassette is just one big long "song."
