New Age Saturday!

When The Wind Blows – Several wind instruments play lilting melodies that are slow and meander through the piece, sometimes bordering on being slightly out of tune. The calm music has an edge of solemnity about it. The ever-present acoustic guitar is methodical and resembles a pulse – it exists but is forgotten, except when the guitar draws out the length of a note.
Eastminster – The constant reverberating sound of rain and the perfect-fifth drone of the strings are calming, but have an air of suspense and tension about them, as if a drama is about to unfold. The koto plays a near continuous refrain, at times forcefully. Evoking pre-colonialist East Asia, the piece is beautiful and stoic in tone, especially as the koto asserts its dominance in the sixth minute and at the end.
Silver Blue Light – Sparse in it’s instrumentation, Silver Blue Light is quiet and pensive with atmospheric synthesized chords and guitar.. There isn’t much of a melodic line to this piece until well into the fifth minute. In the third minute the guitar plays a few high notes, and the key changes briefly, which occurs again in the final twenty seconds as well.
