Fountains. Waterfalls. Gurgling streams. Barefoot walks on dew-wet grass. Crickets chirping at dusk. The sun setting behind distant mountains. These images and more spring to mind as I listen to the music for the “Healing Patterns: A Coloring Book for Adults” promotional video. The soothing background music you will hear in this video is a commissioned piece by composer, Eddie Lewis. Written in a borderline minimalist composition style, the piece features flute, recorder, marimba and clarinet. The music was created to match the organic style of the artwork included in the video, while also encouraging relaxation and a sense of well-being.
