“I found myself at a creative standstill. Despite having a natural talent for music production, I felt unable to tap into my full potential. Frustrated, I embarked on a journey of self-discovery and eventually stumbled upon the practice of meditation,” Major Terro said.

“Intrigued by the idea of finding peace within myself, I began my exploration into the depths of the subconscious mind discovering the path to inner harmony. At the heart of meditation lies the art of stillness.”

He added: “I learned to quiet my mind and let go of racing thoughts and distractions that had previously hindered my creative process. Through daily meditation sessions, I cultivated a deeper connection with my inner self.”

“By doing so, I find the mental clarity necessary for musical inspiration clearing the mental canvas which is evident in the recent song I produced for Poptain titled We Live and We Learn.”

Major Terro said he began noticing a profound shift in his creative abilities as he delved deeper into the practice of meditation.

“Ideas for melodies and harmonies flowed effortlessly, almost as if I was tapping into a cosmic source of inspiration. In a state of deep relaxation and heightened awareness, I became a conduit for the universal vibrations that fuel artistic expression channelling cosmic vibrations into intuitive melodies,” he said.

“Meditation gave me a holistic approach to music production. Meditation not only influenced my musical output, but also my approach to the technical aspects of music production by achieving a state of inner harmony.

“I was able to make better and more intuitive decisions in terms of mixing, arrangement, and even the selection of instruments. The mind-body synergy I gained through meditation ultimately elevated my productions to new heights.”

He said one of the most profound impacts of meditation on his music production journey was its ability to infuse his compositions with raw emotion.

“By tapping into the depths of my own emotions during meditation, I was able to translate those feelings into melodies that resonated deeply with listeners. Through the music I produce like the song Zvirimumoyo by Master H, I sought to create an emotional connection with the audience, inviting them to embark on their own inner journeys,” he noted.

“I found music as a gateway to the soul, cultivating emotional resonance through music. I mastered the transformative potential of inner harmony in the realm of music production.”

Major Terro said through stillness and introspection, he elevated his creative process to new heights, allowing his music to touch the hearts and souls of listeners.

“The practice of meditation in music production offers a powerful reminder that true creative expression often lies not in the external world but within the depths of our own beings,” he said.
