Steven Halpern has been producing and recording music since the 1970s, and pioneered the study and use of sound for healing. His first big release, 1975's SPECTRUM SUITE, helped launch New Age music. Halpern creates music that taps into the body's own innate healing abilities. His recordings fall into several categories: soothing "relaxation response" albums featuring synthesizers and heart-beat-paced rhythms, music with subliminal suggestion, and therapeutic music specifically designed to "tune" the nervous system. He continues to lecture, perform, and release albums at a prolific rate.
