Journey: Longing 1
When people talk about Organic Ambient Music, they mean integration of electronic (computed sounds), electric (electric guitar, bass) and acoustic (acoustic guitar) sounds, for example. Add to this the distinctive Ethnic Balkan Instruments (Bouzouki, Tambura) and you have the Sound-Carpet for Longing. The first Volume of 'The Journey - World of Music Quatrology', Longing takes the traditional Ethnic Scales and Modes to develop it's own Romantic and Melancholic sound-vision of the Modern World we live in. Touching the Minimalist and Neo-Classical traditions, it represents an interesting Crossover between Eastern Roots and Modern Western music. Lyrical at heart, with some soothing melodies, Longing sheds Mediterranean light into inner-search and spiritual journey. Christian in it's outlook, it offers a world of warm, thoughtful soundscapes, suitable to an Adult Contemporary album. Similar artists include: Jethro Tull, Led Zeppelin, George Winston and Mike Oldfield.
