Liquid Mind

Biography

Liquid Mind is the name used by Los Angeles composer, producer, and Emmy-nominated songwriter, Chuck Wild, whose best-selling downtempo, chill out albums have consistently charted in Billboard sales charts and have hit the #1 spot on the iTunes USA new age chart several times. There are few composers with as much love for slowness in their music as Wild. Chuck draws from classical and pop influences as varying as Beethoven and Brian Eno, Bartok and Rachmaninoff, Bach, Chopin and Fauré, Duruflé and Brahms.

Early live and studio experience with the Capitol Records’ group Missing Persons, and studio work with Frank Zappa, Michael Jackson and many others have helped Chuck develop high production values. Spending many studio hours over the years with five time Grammy winning engineer Bruce Swedien and famed producer Ken Scott inspired Chuck to explore unique and subtle gradations of sound and feeling in his music. In November 2005, Chuck presented at the American Music Therapy Conference regarding the use of slow music for relaxation while treating anxiety. Liquid Mind VII: Reflection won the Coalition of Visionary Resources Award for Best Meditation/Healing Music album of 2005.

Chuck’s career spans 47 years from 1972 to the present, including writing 125 songs and compositions used in TV, films and music albums. He was signed to Warner/Chappell Music and Lorimar Telepictures as a staff songwriter in 1987.

Chuck received a special President’s Award from Barbara Wheeler, president of the American Music Therapy Association, on November 12, 2009, in San Diego, California at their 2009 Annual Conference.

Chuck is on the Advisory Board of Dream A World Education, a ground-breaking nonprofit organization that brings arts to young children in underserved and underprivileged communities — giving them experience in dance, music, painting, writing, speaking and acting. Wild is a US Navy veteran, having served between 1968 and 1972, and is active in bringing deep relaxation music to veterans groups and facilities.

The Pointer Sisters, Tommy Page, Timothy Leary, Wink, Jennifer Rush, Thelma Houston, Glenn Medeiros and Philip Bailey are just some of the artists who have recorded his songs. Wild co-composed music with Michael Hoenig for the Emmy® winning ABC-TV series Max Headroom. In 1992, his first composition for two pianos, Los Angeles Fantasy, was premiered by Zita Carno and Gloria Cheng at the Bing Theater in Los Angeles. The same year, Wild co-scored the Academy Award (TM) winning film The Panama Deception. In 1989, he co-wrote (with Marti Sharron) the song “You’re My One and Only,” #1 hit in Europe for Jennifer Rush. Over the last twenty years, Chuck has lent his studio talents to projects with Michael Jackson, Paula Abdul, Missing Persons, Philip Bailey, Frank Zappa, and many other artists.

Liquid Mind XIII: Mindfulness – Album Reviews

CHART – ‘Liquid Mind XIII: Mindfulness’ Charts at #1 Spot

Liquid Mind XIII: Mindfulness takes the number one spot for Best New Age Album in June 2020 on the New Age Music Guide Chart.

 

ALBUM REVIEW – ‘Liquid Mind XIII: Mindfulness’

Liquid Mind XIII: Mindfulness’ is positivity-minded, pure relaxation music that feels like receiving a mental massage or aromatherapy for the ears. And though as a listener I do tend to gravitate towards moodier atmospheres that convey some suspense and tensity, likewise, as someone coming from the perspective of having worked in the spa industry, I’ve found this type of music to be perfectly suited to that environment with its oft-reported therapeutic effect on both clients and holistic practitioners!

ALBUM REVIEW – ‘Liquid Mind XIII: Mindfulness’

Listening to Liquid Mind’s new album ‘Mindfulness’ got me thinking about a famous quote by Osho: ‘Silence has a music of its own, it is not dead, it is very much alive, it is tremendously alive. In fact, nothing is more alive than silence.’ In his music, Chuck Wild seems to capture silence and turn it into music, which in turn makes it easy to experience any kind of meditation – now including mindfulness. It is a fantastic addition to Liquid Mind’s one-of-a-kind discography.

ALBUM REVIEW – ‘Liquid Mind XIII: Mindfulness’

I found Mindfulness to be exactly what I would use for general relaxation or meditation; it fits perfectly for my mindset and needs. I am sure that I am going to be one of many that find the value of listening to Chuck’s musical Mindfulness. It will put you “In the Arms of Love.”

ALBUM REVIEW – ‘Liquid Mind XIII: Mindfulness’

Chuck Wild is known for his mindfulness music, and this album fulfills the promise of assisting you in aligning your mind to one single thought–a thought that you want to concentrate upon. […] Chuck Wild, with all his experience and mastery, has once again delivered a worthy compilation of music for the listeners.

ALBUM REVIEW – ‘Liquid Mind XIII: Mindfulness’

An effortlessly flowing river of calm, perfect for sinking gently into total relaxation.

Dyan Garris, New Age CD

 

ALBUM REVIEW  – ‘Liquid Mind XIII: Mindfulness’

Wild’s style is what I call conscious improvisation. “Let’s try this and see where it goes” works for any and all LiquidMind albums. The thing of it is, once you hear it, the music beckons you to follow and you also want to know where it goes. So you follow it into a world of calmness. A world of quietude. A world of inner peace. Listening to Mindfulness you become aware of your breathing. You notice the shadows on the floor. You can see the tiny dust motes as they travel slowly past your vision. Liquid Mind makes you attentive. I’m going to hit REPEAT button now and let the music catch me again. Always highly recommended.
