This story involves a stroll through one of the small villages of the magical land of sortingAlgorithm, and a chance to observe the resident personifications of various sorting algorithms as to how they go about their peculiar days. While each night the numbered villagers around sortingAlgorithm go to sleep in peaceful order, a dastardly spell of sleepWalking, which hath been cast upon the land, disturbs this order, and by morning the townspeople are in disarray. Each morning, when the numbered villagers awaken in strange and various homes, different from where they fell asleep the night before, they must find their way back home again. So disruptive, yet common, has this phenomenon become across this tired land, that unique methods of getting back home in the morning, or Algorithms, has been devised in each village.

This is my chance to give you a small taste of the work I’ve been able to bring to thousands of people in the three years since graduating from CIIS as a certified sound healer. I subsequently became a Certified Music Practitioner for health care settings. In the six short months since I was hired as a bedside musician part time at a hospital, I’ve made just shy of 500 bedside visits, bringing music to inspire relaxation, wholeness, and peace. And that’s not counting the thousands of people I’ve been able to touch while playing in the hallways and at the nursing stations.
This compilation has been carefully selected to help you relax. First, by catching the attention of your body’s rhythmic systems with more upbeat tunes, then transitioning into a gentle closing melody, designed to leave you in a more peaceful state that you began when you started your sound journey.
“… I may be playing guitar for someone who may be in their last moments of life. To distinguish healing from curing, my guitar playing isn’t going to bring them back. But what it can do is give someone a moment of peace. A sense of wholeness…”
