Recommended Recordings of Steven Halpern

by Unlimited Staff April 24, 2017

A Grammy-nominated, award-winning composer, artist, and producer, Steven Halpern is one of the most well-known sound healers of our time.

He made his debut in 1975 with his Chakra Suite establishing a quiet revolution in contemporary instrumental music. Halpern spent much of his time when he was not making music aligning the metaphysics of sound healing with scientific research on its tangible effects. Through his research he grew to be the primary spokesperson for the emerging field of sound healing.

Along with his current musical work, he is also writing articles and speaking at conferences about the benefits of sound healing. His music translates excellently for the practices of meditation, stress management, yoga, meditation, massage, sleep, and accelerated learning.

Music for Sound Healing

"A must-have for loyal Halpern fans and newcomers to the genre, every track on this anthology gives listeners the 'healing feeling'. Because relaxation is fundamental to optimal health and healing, this album belongs in everyone's 'sound medicine library'." (amazon)


Inner Peace

"Inner Peace is a gentle new age CD with space music and ambient overtones. Steven Halpern is an expert sound designer and he is able to work in many different new age styles. His primary styles are healing and meditation. When he approaches those styles from an ambient minimalist direction, the atmospheres take on space music characteristics. This is an excellent hybrid of all of those styles." (Allmusic)


Sleepscape Delta 1 

"You can fall asleep easily, and awaken relaxed and refreshed.
If you’re one of the 65 million of us who have problems sleeping, you need to try this CD. Halpern’s atmospheric compositions have a 35 year proven track record of helping people relax and effortlessly ease into sleep. To amplify these effects, the music is the music is combined with subtle sound technology (Aural-SyncTM) that gently entrains your brain into the delta brainwave frequencies (1-3 cycles per second) associated with deep, restorative sleep. All you have to do is listen!TM" (stevenhalpern)


Tonal Alchemy 

"Nurture your body, mind and soul with this breakthrough recording that combines ancient sound healing traditions with artistic creativity. Tonal Alchemy features audiophile recordings of ancient Tibetan and Japanese temple bowls to clear the mind and transport you to the Silence beyond the "furthest away sound." Tonal Alchemy begins and ends inside the Great Pyramid in Egypt. Listen with headphones, and you can feel the transformative power of the tone of the breathtaking Silence. The closing meditation is the next best thing to actually being there and experiencing it for yourself!" (Stevenhalpern)


Higher Ground 

"Arguably Halpern's most artistically accomplished album, Higher Ground mixes his trademark sounds of the past with some new directions, particularly a more skillful use of synthesizers. For those interested in Halpern's latest therapeutic developments, there's an added benefit: the composer has included what he calls "binaural beat phrasing" to the music, which he says "sonically entrains your brain to an immediate 8-cycles per second response" that locks you "into phase with the natural harmonics of the Earth."(allmusic)


Ocean Suite 

"Relax with the gentle rhythms of Mother Nature in duet with intimate solo grand piano. Steven's music breathes, rests and breathes again, and encourages you to do the same. Bonus track provides a soothing solo of liquid serenity."(stevenhalpern)


Relaxation Suite 

"Relaxation Suite is the ultimate in sound healing for stress relief. The music instantly transports you to your own oasis of serenity. From the very first notes, you may notice that you're breathing more deeply. Tension in your neck and shoulders melt away as if by magic. Within moments, you feel relaxed and at peace. The soulful, soft and warm sounds of David Darling’s cello joins Steven’s grand piano and ethereal electric piano. Their soaring melodies create majestic cathedrals of sound that are sure to become some of your all-time favorites. Additional tracks add shakuhachi (Japanese flute) and silver flute for a delight-fully varied yet consistent mood you’ll enjoy for years to come."(Stevenhalpern)


In the Om Zone 2.0 

"According to the ancient spiritual traditions of India, OM is the primordial vibration that is the harmonic building block of our 3-dimensional world. For millenia, people have chanted this mantra to enhance attunement with the quantum field in meditation and yoga practice. This CD updates this tradition by giving you two options. Play the CD softly to provide an uplifting ambience. Increase the volume and you'll have a virtual yoga class of chanters so you won't have to "Om alone at home."" (Stevenhalpern)


Deep Theta 2.0: Brainwave Entrainment Music for Meditation and Healing 

"Combined with Rhodes electric piano, it's a tonal combo made in Zen heaven. To play shakuhachi, one must be very aware of the breath. Thus, the breath of the artist adds to the meditative effect. Amplifying the uplifting effects of the music itself, Aural-SyncTM brainwave synchronization tones gently guide your brain into a deep theta state of 4 cycles per second (4 Hz). Your heart and brain naturally synchronize with the fundamental harmonics of the earth itself, making this soundtrack ideal for personal and Global Coherence meditations for peace. Featuring the healing tones of the legendary Rhodes Mark 7 electric piano and subtle sustained harmonies, DEEP THETA 2.0 is an instant classic that you’ll be enjoying for years to come." (stevenhalpern)


Music for Yoga 

"This breathtaking collection culls from earlier Steven Halpern CDs, bringing together the transcendent tones of "Inner Peace," "Dawn," "Pachelbel's Canon," and 11 others. This album, perfectly suited for a slow hatha yoga session or other meditative pursuits, utilizes mostly synthesizer and keyboards, although bamboo flute and violin make artful appearances." (allmusic)


Effortless Relaxation--Beautiful Music plus Subliminal Suggestions 

"Stress is a causative or contributing factor in 85\% of the diseases that affect us. Therefore, the reduction of stress should be an essential foundation of your healthy lifestyle. Your stress melts away within moments as the soothing piano, harp and flute help you shift gears into the welcome state of relaxation. To enhance the relaxing effects, the power of your mind is harnessed with a series of spoken suggestions, which are blended softly (subliminally) into the music. You don’t actually hear them, but your subconscious mind does — and responds accordingly. "(stevenhalpern)


Your Best Music for Sleep 

"The beautiful, atmospheric compositions feature the soothing tones of the Rhodes electric piano and other keyboards that automatically relax the body and quiet the mind. Within moments, you can feel yourself breathing slower and deeper, as you drift off to sleep at the speed of sound. For over 37 years, Steven Halpern has set the standard of excellence in the field of functional sound healing. This album is not intended as entertainment. Play it softly in your bedroom, and you're unlikely to hear the end of the recording. We wish you sweet dreams. "(stevenhalpern)


Gifts of the Angels 

"All except two pieces on Gifts of the Angels are taken from eight previous Steven Halpern releases. As the title suggests, the album highlights music with an angelic presence. Halpern writes that these pieces represent those "'magic moments' that occur at least once while recording each album...when the room fills with a luminous light...when time seems to stand still." Also appearing on the album are harpist Georgia Kelly, from the Ancient Echoes album, and Diana Allen on the vocals to a new piece, "Angels on High.""(allmusic)


Crystal Bowl Healing 2012 

"Quartz crystal bowls are powerful and transformative sound healing instruments. Their pure tones physically resonate the cells and tissues in our body, which are themselves crystalline in nature. In addition to classic frosted and clear bowls, this album features Crystal Tones proprietary gem and precious metal infused bowls, including the Aqua 24-K Gold and Egyptian Blue bowl, inspired by a 3300 year old Egyptian Temple bowl.TM" (stevenhalpern)


Music For Healing 

"Music touches our hearts and resonates within our bodies. The right music can truly renew us, helping us to feel relaxed and rejuvenated. Great musicians have always recognized this therapeutic power of music, and researchers are finally proving them right. The Sound Medicine Series features the works of inspired musical pioneers who are exploring music's healing power. Natural Balance and Harmony Your body is a self-healing instrument. If you give it a chance it will always tend toward homeostasis or healthful balance. Sound healer Steven Halpern uses soothing and free-floating keyboard compositions to draw the body into this state of balance and harmony. Combining artistic inspiration, sensitivity, and sophisticated sound technology, his compositions synchronize the hemispheres of the brain and amplify the production of alpha waves. This natural response is associated with feelings of deep relaxation, contentment, and well-being. Music for Healing Mind, Body & Spirit was previously released under the title In the Key of Healing "(amazon)


Spectrum Suite 

"Steven Halpern is a seminal figure in New Age music, pioneering the market back in the 1970s, long before the major labels got hold of it. His merchandising touts the healing attributes of his music, which he dubbed the "anti-frantic alternative." According to Halpern, his sounds will tune your aura, massage your chakras, and stop you from smoking. His theories have been largely debunked as pseudoscientific, quasi-metaphysical fluff, (see Lisa Summer's book, Music: The New Age Elixir), which brings us to his first album, Spectrum Suite, originally released in 1975. Its 14 compositions float by in major-key improvisations that never resolve. Instead, he sends notes out into the clear air, the vibraphone-like tones of his Fender Rhodes electric piano resonating like bells in space. You don't follow Halpern's music, but float through it. More rhapsodic than Brian Eno's ambient compositions of the same era, Halpern would be a pleasant diversion if he didn't weigh his music down with so much New Age baggage." (John Diliberto)


Achieving Your Ideal Weight 

"This album is designed with meal times in mind, for stress-free dining or whenever the listener is hungry. Under a layer of relaxing music, including Steven Halpern's most popular composition, "Crystal Suite," are subliminal affirmations like, "You chew your food slowly. You love and accept your body fully.""(allmusic)


Music for Babies 

"Steven Halpern's pioneering use of music as a catalyst for relaxation has taken him into many diverse corners: music for lovers, music for healing, subliminal music to reprogram habits, etc. Here, he retools some classic nursery songs, including "Frère Jacques," "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star," and "Three Blind Mice," as relaxing, gentle mists of keyboard synthesizer, perfectly suited to the tiny ears of babies and their stressed out caretakers." (allmusic)


Peace of Mind 

"Peace of Mind makes it easy to "get in the gap," the space between the notes and between thoughts. Deepak Chopra and Wayne Dyer elegantly describe it as a space of pure potential and connection to the divine." (stevenhalpern)


Accelerating Self-Healing 

"Steven Halpern's music has a 40 year proven track record of supporting the innate healing intelligence within us with Next-Gen Music for Mindfulness. (tm) Combining his Grammy nominated healing compositions with health-affirming statements of positive intention, SELF-HEALING 2.0 is evokes your 'relaxation response' with skillful orchestration of tone, silence, and mindfulness. Functional, effective and enjoyable, all you have to do to benefit is to listen."(stevenhalpern)



"Steve Halpern's Deja-Blues is a reworking of his 1978 album From Hear to Eternity. This time around, Halpern adds guest vocals and has restructured the instrumentals to take the listener on even a further journey than before. As the album opens with the title track, a scene of sailing down a heat drenched, narrow tropical river in a boat is painted with Halpern's rhythms and the bamboo flute solos by Schawkie Roth. Ethereal vocals come courtesy of Melissa Phillippe, who contributes more to the exotic picture of a place somewhere between Morocco and Tibet. The last track, "Atlantis Rising," brings the listener to the exotic bright sunset that puts the untamed wilderness and the journey to an end. Though Halpern's work is nothing towards groundbreaking, it is a more rhythmic attempt at a genre that often acts as a lullaby, rather than an encouraging calm."(allmusic)
