Biography

Herb is a composer and musician from the Pacific Northwest region of the United States. His focus is to produce gentle, intuitive music to aid in the healing of our wonderful world.

Jack Clarke, author of Life After Grief — A Soul Journey After Suicide, said of Herb: “When meeting him, the source of his marvelous music is better understood, for Herb Ernst is an extraordinary spiritual being. Perhaps that is why Shirley MacLaine chose his music for three-fourths of her Going Within double audiocassette. His Dreamflight Trilogy is one of the finest sets of New Age music tapes ever created.”

Herb was born in San Diego, California, on March 11, 1950. He began piano lessons at age eight. As his father was in the military, the family traveled extensively in both Europe and the United States. Herb entered college to study music but became bored with structured musical ideas and methodology. As a new social awareness was developing in the 1960’s, he changed his major from music to sociology and graduated from the University of Oregon with a Bachelor of Arts degree in sociology in 1972. In 1977, he returned to school to earn an Associate of Science degree in electronics. Herb then began to experiment with combining his knowledge of electronics and music.

In his youth, Herb developed an interest in metaphysics and a love for meditation. With meditation he explored new musical forms and the possibilities of using music for meditative purposes.
