moody steve has left you with some really fine examples of ambient music that could put you in a very good peaceful trance…
MICHAEL STEARNS - “Planetary Unfolding” (album)
This man has created some the most brilliantly innovative psychedelic ambient music I’ve ever heard. His album “Planetary Unfolding” is a pure masterpiece and anyone reading this should get ahold of it immediately!!! (although it gets kinda spooky at moments.. so not exactly happy music)
He is highly under-rated, and a mastermind of his craft. His body of work is stunning, and another album of intrested by him would be “Kiva”
Kiva was recorded within an actual native american kiva, which is a cylindrical pit “room” in the ground, in which native americans would go on vision quests induced by the legendary Ayahausca! Michael Stearns and friends were privileged enough to be witnesses to an actual ayahausca kiva ceremony, and this record is the music they played LIVE and recorded LIVE within the same kiva, during this fantastic ritual !!!
However, both these albums are not quite good examples for “happy” music while tripping…
KEVIN BRAHENY - “The Way Home” (album)
This is a great example of superbly emotional space music from the Hearts of Space label. This album is probably one of your best bets for the happiest most relaxing mushroom trip. However, Kevin has a much better album called “Secret Rooms”, which is a concept journey through secret passageways and stairways full of secret rooms containing beautiful VERY VERY MYSTERIOUS music! Very original, and highly innovative.
Beyond psychedelic space music and happy ambient space music… There is, one of my revolutionary projects…
Zyzzybalubah’s HALLUCINOGENIC MIXTAPES - vol. 3 “Machine Of The Mind” (album)
I have created 5 and a half albums so far using a process of extracting and sampling the most tripped out, weird noises, and most hallucinogenic music ever made, by any and all artists from all over the world! I will then create a sound collage with this material by splicing, overlapping, and making all these pieces of music fit together like a perfect puzzle, that flows fluidly for an entire hour or more!!
This music (particularly under the influence of an entheogen such as psilocybic mushrooms), is so hallucinogenic that it can induce visuals that are only limited by your imagination!!!
some people try to claim… no this doesn’t work without drugs… but they are missing the point. to properly use these mixtapes you should put yourself in a setting much like an isolation tank… where you want to cut off as much outside stimulation as possible. Lay on a bed, with the lights off. Stare at the ceiling… watch your winamp visualizations… and listen to the complete mix, allowing it to fully seep into your mind, and take you for a pleasure cruise through the beautiful insanity within the imagination of the human mind.
you can download this entire album (vol. 3) by clicking this very link to the full-album MP3
or you can hear samples, and previews, and also read more information about the creation process (as well as links to my many other hallucinogenic/original/unique/new/different music projects) on the myspace for these mixtapes @
however if you are looking for a more poppy happy angle to psychedelic music…
perhaps something that is like a new 2000’s version of what the beatles were doing with “sgt. pepper” and “magical mystery tour”... .or perhaps brian wilson and the beach boy’s legendary psyche-pop album “smile”... then in that case i would highly recommend another creation of mine, which is entitled ZYZZYBALUBAH
you can find this happy twisted dreamworld @
ENJOY! ! !!
and don’t forget to find these albums! everybody!!!
these are excellent examples of innovation in music!!!!
