Podcast: LOU REED - ARCHIVE SERIES
Turn on and tune in to the hypnotic vibrations of Hudson River Wind Meditations. The latest installment of Light in the Attic's Liner Notes illuminates Lou Reed's final solo album, one of his most personal musical works. In this episode, we hear from Eddie Stern, the renowned yoga instructor who taught Lou, along with celebrated artist Laurie Anderson, Lou's longtime partner & wife.
Hudson River Wind Meditations combines Reed's love of creating drone music with his passion for Tai Chi, yoga, and meditation. The album's ambient soundscapes have been described as a counterpoint to his intense Metal Machine Music album—but they are similar outliers in Reed's 40+ year exploration of drone music and feedback harmonics, music created specifically for a certain time and place of mind.
