Contact: justineb@talent.com.au

Australian composer and vocalist Justine Bradley has composed the music contained in three excellent CDs of contemporary sounds. Justine is a certified therapist in Timeline Therapy (TM) and Ericksonian Hypnosis and a Master Practitioner of NLP. She lives in a northern beach suburb of Sydney.

Inner Sense

Composed using hypnotic rhythms and specific tempos 'Inner Sense' is designed to assist the listener in accessing a deep state of relaxation. In invitation to explore the inner realms and 'Nurture the helaer within'

For the mirth of the muse

Composed in state of self induced trance. Justine has incorporated the use of minimalistic lyrical content to enhance the trademark of sensuous melodies and hypnotic rhythm patterns.

Gifts from the unknown

This CD uses the scales of the founding civilizations of humanity, Greek, Japanese, Chinese, Egyptian etc, as a basis for the compositions. Appealing to both mind and soul, the music is designed to be soothing yet musically engaging while incorporating a good deal of rhythmic interest.

"This book is based upon a new discovery about the effect of sound upon the brain. Sound Therapy is a listening technique using high frequency music for beneficially recharging the cortex of the brain. The effect upon the person is one of vitalizing, harmonizing and healing in almost every area of being"
