Music Of The Rivers (Sound Scapes) (Audio CD)

Music Of The Rivers (Sound Scapes) (Audio CD)

About the CD

These compositions are my tribute to water in its many forms, from a single tiny drop to broad rivers on their journey to the seas. The river is the water form we are all familiar with- it is an elemental life force, nourishing and sustaining, bringing fields and flowers to bountiful richness, whose bands give shelter to trees and animals and birds. The playfulness of the sparkling waters, now radiant in the sunlight, now cascading in waterfalls, now swollen by shimmering curtains of rain as the river traverses the rural heartland- these are visual images I have translated into music. But water, and the river, have an awesome aspect too, powerful and even destructively. Its elemental, cosmic nature and its potential for fury and havoc are musically described in the opening parts.

The compositions span different musical idioms from classical raga to folk-based melody and a more contemporary interpretation. Sound effects have been used sparingly, to suggest ambience rather than define it. Traditional instruments have been used throughout, though sometimes unconventionally, except for the bass guitar, which I have used to underscore rhythm, and as an almost jazz-like counterpoint in the last piece.

The river has many faces. These compositions are musical impressions of those faces, musical images recreated in sound.

Testimonials
I received the statue today, and it is beautiful! Worth the wait! Thank you so much, blessings, Kimberly.
Kimberly, USA
I received the Green Tara Thangka described below right on schedule. Thank you a million times for that. My teacher loved it and was extremely moved by it. Although I have seen a lot of Green Tara thangkas, and have looked at other Green Tara Thangkas you offer and found them all to be wonderful, the one I purchased is by far the most beautiful I have ever seen -- or at least it is the one that most speaks to me.
John, USA
Your website store is a really great place to find the most wonderful books and artifacts from beautiful India. I have been traveling to India over the last 4 years and spend 3 months there each time staying with two Bengali families that I have adopted and they have taken me in with love and generosity. I love India. Thanks for doing the business that you do. I am an artist and, well, I got through I think the first 6 pages of the book store on your site and ordered almost 500 dollars in books... I'm in trouble so I don't go there too often.. haha.. Hari Om and Hare Krishna and Jai.. Thanks a lot for doing what you do.. Great !
