in Real Musics video
for Namasté Healing is Sparks of Love
by Frank Steiner, Jr. This track was originally recorded for
Steiners album Into
Forever. Steiner explains, For this album I wanted
to create music which is very calm and simple
like an acoustic
perfume, a soft music fragrance to help one relax and unwind.
Whisper To Me by Liquid Mind first appeared on
the album Liquid
Mind IX: Lullaby. For Chuck Wild the music came
from a very personal inspiration, but with a similar result. I
wrote and recorded Whisper to Me following the passing
of my Dad at age 97. Emotionally that time in my life was a process
of grieving and moving on, letting go the last of my immediate family,
a process those of us lucky enough to live a longer life will all
go through at some point. Whisper To Me is designed to
be very slow and sonically smooth, deeply relaxing, introspective,
Kevin Kern tells us, And The Light Is Forever,
was one of several spontaneous improvisations created as part of the
Light album. All my life I have enjoyed a special
bond with the piano. I have been legally blind since birth. Until
comparatively recently my poor vision prevented me from composing
music on paper for other musicians to play. This is why I have come
to depend upon access to the very finest instruments to stoke my creative
fire and help me to find just the right melodies for my pieces.
Playing just the right piano at just the right moment simply fuels
my creativity indescribably. It brought back many memories of when
the instrument was truly my closest friend. The result has been the
addition of a number of spontaneously created pieces for many of my
CDs, inspired in the moment by that special lifelong emotional connection
I have with the piano. That emotion comes out in pieces like And
The Light Is Forever.
Eternity by Henrik Hytteballe (The Haiku Project)
is a track from the album Flow,
just released in April.
I had a special story in mind when composing "Eternity."
In his book Lifetide, Lyall Watson tells about being on a distant
Indonesian island watching the turtles coming up on land to dig holes
for their eggs. He wanted very much to see the giant leatherback sea
turtle. The wise man, called a djuru, took him to the lagoon and while
Lyall Watson was watching, the djuru started to splash his hands in
the sea as if he were playing a piano.
After 20 minutes a giant turtle appeared. The djuru kept on moving
his hands and began to sing a song in his old language. The turtle
came closer and stopped just half a meter away, lifted its head and
nipped the djurus fingers as gentle as a calf. Then it turned
its giant body and disappeared into the big ocean again.
For me this is a beautiful example of a communication between species
that cannot be explained in any scientific way, but takes place anyhow.
Most of us just havent found out yet how to communicate with
animals, but hopefully, as we all are connected, we may become wiser
in the future.
Real Music has made a wonderful video
for the track "Eternity" following a turtle in the ocean.
The video is just perfect, particularly given the story behind the
The track Divine Oneness is from the album Divine
Dimension by Rajendra Teredesai. Teredesai tells
us, Divine Oneness is based on a traditional Indian
raga. The composition is meant to facilitate a mood for deep reflection
of the listeners inner self, and detached contemplation of the
The deep and rich tone of the bamboo flute and the accompanying music
with its quality of spiritual repose also attempts to free the seeker
from his day-to-day worries and transport him momentarily to a realm
of inner peace and all pervading quietude.
