This is a new review from the Italian Magazine Amo la Musica. It's always interesting to read about their experiences with our new releases. Please leave your comments below if you have heard this album. - Steve
"We continue our journey into the world of music and meditative New Age, masterfully played by David and Steve Gordon, founders and owners of Sequoia Records, which we had the pleasure to interview a few weeks ago. Tthis kind of music is recognized and appreciated throughout the world, both for its extraordinary ability to relax, and also for the development that is able to operate in many other electronic genres, starting from 'to arrive at Ambient Chill Out And so, the first listen ..
And so, after the first listening of "" Creative Dreaming "" your body and your spirit will thank you for the leap in quality that have made possible. The sonic textures in the two songs are from 20 minutes without rhythm, in a climate of unique temporal suspension. Everything is marked by sweet and suffused pads that accompany the listener in a world of peace.
The first few minutes of the song Preparation for Lucid Dreaming are characterized by a voice guidance, with great delicacy, advises the listener to relax , to be focused only on themselves, to feel your body lighten guided by the musical pads, natural sounds and piano notes. The female voice that guides the listener back in the second half of the song, almost inviting to repeat the experience again before returning to reality, in a continuous cycle that never seems to stop.
The second song, Creative Dreaming , which comes immediately after the first, preparatory, continues the sonic textures of the first and apparently immediately with the ""instructions for use"": this track, in fact, must be heard before falling asleep to face a night serene, calm and above all full of beautiful dreams. A valuable aid to wake up more relaxed than ever and start your day, especially if you have to go to work or school.
It can be a commitmnent to listen to a guided meditation like this, but God help us if music did not exist ... Our life would just be a huge mess!"
