Original Trance Music by Doug O’Brien and Nick Kemp

This music was recorded by Doug O’Brien and Nick Kemp at Nick’s studio in Leeds, England in December, 2007. After composing original music for the Shamanic Journeys of “How Deep the Rabbit Hole” in 2006, we decided to create some music for trance that can be used as accompaniment to your own trance inductions. The music is 15 minutes in length. You are free to use it however you choose. We only ask, if you use it for a distributed recording, please give us a music credit. Thanks.

By the way, it has been noted by some people that Milton Erickson never used background music in his inductions. To that we can only say: he never heard ours.
