Anima

Sacred Alliance

Deep within, We all know that we are souls, incarnating lifetime after lifetime to experience, learn and grow... to live in alignment, service and reciprocity with our Divine Creator.
Each lifetime is grated to us by the Divine, sanctioned by The Great Mother.  In reciprocity for the energy of life, we make an agreement to complete a service or mission which we are then obligated to fulfill if we wish to be supported and held by the grace, protection and guidance of the higher realms of the The Mother's Dominion.

Ali Calderwood

Anima is a UK based duo comprising of producer / composer / multi-instrumentalist, Ali Calderwood and vocalist / songwriter, Daniela Broder.

As independent artists and a duo, Anima have forged an engaging new style of music blending rich, meditative soundscapes, ethereal, mezzo-soprano vocals, sacred and ancient chants, with a variety of world instruments and healing frequencies. Through exquisitely crafted recordings, Anima weave alluring tapestries of sound and vibration that touch the heart and soul, moving the listener into deep states of stillness, peace and presence.

Both Ali and Daniela have been involved with music from an early age, and along with studies in the arts and natural medicine, they have spent a number of years within different parts of the world learning from indigenous elders and teachers in the ancient healing arts.

Ali began producing music under the name Anima in 2004, releasing his debut album “Celestial Baptism”. The same year, Ali and Daniela met in Bath, Somerset, and the following year while individually travelling in Mexico, they began performing music together. Their journey then led to them living together in the Peruvian Amazon and the Andes in Bolivia, where they began working on their first joint album “Lemuria Emerging”, which was released in 2007.  As of 2014, Anima have released 13 albums, including the highly acclaimed “Sound Medicine”. A number of their tracks, and other commissioned pieces have been featured in films and used in best-selling guided meditation CDs. Their album “Light of Aluna” won an IMA award for best New Age Music album 2013. In 2014, Anima began recording and re-recording a number of their albums in DSD and SACD format, which include “Sacred Alliance”, “Sound Medicine HD” and “Temple of the Heart HD”.

Their live concerts have been hosted by some prestigious venues and events around the UK and in Europe. They continue to offer “Sound Healing Concerts”, as well as facilitate retreats and workshops in the UK.

Anima are based in the Highlands of Scotland, in a remote location. Energy for creating music is provided through renewable energy resources of water and sunlight, and food is grown on the land in harmony with the natural rhythms and cycles. Anima is a word found in various languages and cultures, that means soul, breath, air, life force and feminine spirit energy, and it is this sacred energy that inspires their work.

“The precious time that we have spent immersed within the indigenous ways of life and their living connection to the world of spirit, has deeply enriched our lives, and reawakened our natural ability to connect and work with the healing energies of Nature. It’s this connection that is imbued within the music that we create, and infuses it with a kind of magnetic quality that affects and touches people, and brings about healing experiences that our music is known for."

"Anima's fine contemplative music recording in Single DSD, Sound Medicine, is well rounded and fulsome in its foundation. Ditto with their other recording, Sacred Alliance. The Sonoma Acoustics system made the entire wide-ranging frequencies come together in a very satisfying way."

Producer:

The recent Anima Music DSD/SACD projects were recorded & mixed on a Cadac J series console. All connections used high quality connectors with OFC cable by Mogami and Van Damme. High quality professional microphones included valve, ribbon, condenser and dynamic models. Lexicon 960L, PCM 91 & 90 Digital Reverbs plus Eventide DSP400 outboard FX processing.  Avalon VT-747 SP, 2x Summit DCL-200 & TLA Valve Compressor / Limiter signal processors. ATC 100A, PMC TB2S-A and Adam A7X with Adam Sub 10 Active Studio Monitors.
The Mixes were recorded through multiple channels of the Cadac J Series console into 5.1 surround in DSD Format. This process used a Pyramix DSD system with one DAD AX24 Interface to capture DSD at 2.8 GHz.
The Mastering set-up then used two Pyramix systems with two DAD AX24 interfaces. One was used to play audio out into the analogue domain while the other captured mastered audio. The Mastering process used additional signal processors for Compressor / Limiting & Equalisation.
Units used included: Neve 8051 5.1 Comp/limiter, Elysia Alpha, Buzz Audio REQ & 2x GML 8200. All audio was ‘topped & tailed’ and authored in Pyramix for DSD and SACD production at 2.8 GHz.
