This is my composition based on improvisations inspired by the first chakra: Muladhara, the root chakra. Read here my woo woo story about how I got into the chakra energy stuff and why I composed the seven solo violin pieces inspired by the seven chakra’s.
Just some general Wiki info about this chakra, which can give you an idea about what should be the mood of the piece:
“Vishuddha or Vishuddhi is depicted as a silver crescent within a white circle, with 16 light or pale blue, or turquoise petals. The seed mantra is Ham, and the residing deity is Panchavaktra shiva, with 5 heads and 4 arms, and the Shakti is Shakini.
Vishuddha may be understood as relating to communication and growth through expression. This chakra is paralleled to the thyroid, a gland that is also in the throat and which produces thyroid hormone, responsible for growth and maturation. Physically, Vishuddha governs communication, emotionally it governs independence, mentally it governs fluent thought, and spiritually, it governs a sense of security.
In Tibetan buddhism, this chakra is red, with 16 upward pointing petals. It plays an important role in Dream Yoga, the art of lucid dreaming.”
