EARTH'S GARDEN

2012

Relaxing music dedicated to the Plant Kingdom that sustains our Planet Earth. Contains Nature Sounds scattered throughout.

This new CD is not as 'spacey' as Michael other recent releases. The gentle strings accompanying the occasional Nature Sounds give it a more contempary, grounding feel. It does however retain the free flowing nature of his past music making it perfect for relaxation, various therapies or just plain background listening.

Earth's Garden can be likened to a 'soft & gentle symphony', with its undulating strings and passive and subtle melodies.

Track Titles:
1. Earths Garden - 25.33
2. Green at the Water's Edge - 9.06
3. The Forest, The Tree, The Leaf - 15.08
4. Across the Morning Landscape - 15.06

Total Time 65 minutes

 

Comments by Michael: Earth's Garden was inspired by my love of being in the bush and connecting with nature. Related to that is also my passion for gardening.

To date most of my CD's have been inspired by the cosmos and therefore have been understandably ' beyond wordly'. Earth's Garden is, perhaps, a little less 'spacey' with more string sounds & general orchestral instrumentation. I particularly avoided those 'other wordly' sounds and concentrated on a more conventional approach to keep the music grounded and more 'earthly'. The result is a symphony of music with occasional nature sounds, but it is an even flowing, undulating and gentle symphony.

Earth's Garden is about acknowledging the Plant Kingdom and respecting it's place as a founding factor in reason for all life on our Planet Earth. We exist and benefit through plants unbelievable diversity and ecological value and importance. It is up to us to ensure that Kingdom of Plants continues to thrive and prosper. Earth is often called the Blue Planet but it being Green is not far behind.

Celestial Sounds is Michael's first ever production It was was released in 1986 as a cassette of about 45 minutes of music. When CD's became a medium for the airing of music, an additional track of 20 minutes (track 7 above) was added to compliment the length of CD recordings. This production is now nealry 30 years old and is still sold in stores and in some circles is considered a 'classic'. It is one of the first albums to combine Australian Nature Sounds with original relaxing or ambient music.

Comments by Michael: In 1983, after completing a Science Degree and a year of traveling, I settled down with a newly acquired keyboard and recording equipment. Throughout University I had discovered the electronic music of the 70's and was inspired by much of its relaxing ambient sounds (but not so by the noisy, jarring sounds that often came with the genre as well). Such was the passion to explore this music that a desire to manifest my own material was born.

As a lover of nature, camping & bushwalking I also spent time recording the sounds of birds, water and ocean waves. Over a period I recorded many hours of nature sounds, mainly around the forest and beaches of Victoria, in South East Australia. Combining the music and the sounds of nature to produce Celestial Sounds was joining my two great loves in life at the time. Sometimes I feel people still pick up on the joy in the music, especially the first track, Morning Mountains Song, despite the ambient style.
