I've found some beautiful meditative music that is perfect when trying to strengthen your calligraphic rhythm.
This is also good to listen to while meditating, for yoga, journaling, praying, etc.
ALINA, by Arvo Part.
In particular, the three pieces entitled Spiegel im Spiegel for violin & piano.
Translation is Mirror in Mirror.
Here's a little review:
Arvo Pärt's Alina follows a simple-enough formula. Two stark instrumental works from the master of holy minimalism repeat each other, each time slightly different. But the blissful results--quiet, haunting, and thoroughly hypnotizing--meld to create one of classical music's best albums of 2000. It's as intense and sublime as contemporary classical music can be. --Jason Verlinde
I've also found this to be very healing music.
Listen to some samples and see what happens. If you love it, buy it!
Would love to hear your reactions.
