Music That Tells A Story by Symphonex Orchestra
- posted by Steve Sheppard on 7/24/2018
A beautiful tapestry of sound
The level of uniqueness on this latest release by Peter Xifaras is miles ahead of anything seen thus far this century, not only has the composer created something deeply special and incredibly meaningful, he has also manifested something that pulls the attention of the project towards the listener, and never lets it go until the end.
Music that has inspired stories throughout the ages and writing words to the images that the music raises, this is so familiar to me as not only a writer, but as a poet as well, as this is something I have done and felt through most of my life and at last the artist with his team have brought something into this world that is musical symphonic, and will allow the mind to manifest its own imagery to wander within.
Two amazing discs give the listener a chance to either bathe in the pool of warming music, and may I add with regard to the Violin segments here, they were stunning and reminded me in energy and tone of a Vaughn Williams composition, or we can listen to the narration of Joan Jacobs whose mesmeric voice will lead us hand in hand along this path of bliss, while the vocals of Felicia Farerre, will lift our spirits along the way.
Music That Tells a Story by Symphonex Orchestra is one those albums that you will find eats into your very psyche and never lets you go; there is so much here to enjoy. The inspirational works of Erik Satie and the Gymnopédie Variations being one that I adored completely, but there is much to explore and dream within on this release. Peter Xifaras must be applauded for creating a certain uniqueness in music that has it all, perfect compositions recorded with such quality it is a delight to sample, soft, but extremely memorable melodies that literally rain with emotive pleasure, and all wrapped up in such a beautiful tapestry of sound, tone and narration, this must be a potential future award winning album, if there is any justice in this musical world.

Fearless by Cecilie

Cecilie Is A New Singer With A Beautiful Voice
CECILIE IS A NEW EUROPEAN SINGER WITH A BEAUTIFUL VOICE

Cecilie is a singer and songwriter from Norway who has a gentle, vulnerable, new age style that includes elements of pop, folk and Celtic music. Her debut album is called FEARLESS, and many of her lyrics offer encouragement for the listener to be brave and go find their own rewarding personal direction in life. Her lyrics are in English and are extremely poetic. She sings with an angelic voice and heart-breaking honesty about love, relationships, inner feelings and personal tales of the trials and tribulations of life. Cecilie (it is pronounced sih-seal-yeh) is backed by excellent musicians on piano, guitars, key harp, flute, violin, viola, mandolin, bass and drums. Her background includes a lifetime of singing in choirs plus many roles onstage performing in musical plays. Now she is taking her lovely voice and deep thoughts and presenting them to the world.

Voyage Through the Chakras by Yuval Ron
- posted by Steve Sheppard on 7/23/2018
Divine in every aspect of the word
For me this latest release by Yuval Ron is as essential to as fresh air, this is divine in every aspect of the word. A double disc that features the talents of a multitude of artists and on disc one via the guided meditation of Lucinda Claire, is a release that should become part of everyone’s daily meditational routines.
The answer to your next question is yes, as soon as we received the album we played the disc and followed the guided meditation to great effect, while on disc 2, you will be able to literally sound bathe in a deep but utterly blissful seventy minutes plus of ambience.
Yuval Ron has produced something so very powerful and healing with this offering and for me a panacea of musical delights that I could float with and immerse myself into the tones of the Gongs of Kenneth Goff, or the Sitar of Pandit Nayan Ghosh, all day and night long. The Cello of Dennis Karmazyn gives me an opportunity to embrace and balance my ego, while the amazing Bansuri Flute of Shye Ben Tzur allows me to connect with my heart chakra and release.
Voyage Through the Chakras isn’t just any new age album, it is a beautifully created and crafted work of art that contains such a wide depth and wonderful flow of tranquil but purposeful music. I personally would recommend this album to anyone who seeks to find their borderlands of inner peace. Yuval Ron and his team on this album have probably produced the ultimate meditative album of the century thus far and, as such it is totally recommended.
