Terry Oldfield
Reiki Harmony
New Earth

By Paula E. Kirman

Published April 24, 2007

Terry Oldfield is a classically trained flautist, and his latest New Age recording, Reiki Harmony, offers up exactly what it promises: tones and sounds to reflect Reiki, which means “Universal Life Force Energy” and is actually a form of healing believed to have its roots in Tibet, having been rediscovered there in the 1800s. A large part of the Reiki belief is that certain kinds of sounds can be linked to the human nervous system and activate a healing process. Oldfield’s music is intended to reach into the inner human core to bring about a state of relaxation. Which it likely does, if one is into this sort of thing. Otherwise, these long pieces, more focused on atmosphere than melody, will make decent background music, but won’t hold the attention. This is music with a purpose, but listeners need to share that purpose or they’re sure to be bored.
