Album Review

Deuter: Innovative German electronic pioneer during the prog rock era, went the way of Florian Fricke and dove deep into the waters of the new age. Deuter went far deeper, however, retaining none of his connection with the street or underground music scene that spawned him. He has become a leading light in the music of healing and meditation, and Buddha Nature is his most focused yet most stridently abstract work in this genre to date. Deuter's correct perception that Buddha Nature is inseparable from bliss/void and compassion — illustrated by the image of Avlokiteshvara (the Buddha of compassion who the Dalai Lama is said to be a reincarnation of) on the cover — creates five meditative tracks that deal with different aspects of the Path impressionistically. His trademark blend of keyboards, flutes, stringed instruments, and ambient soundscapes creates a web of musically impressionistic narratives that delve underneath the active perception of the listener and create a sense of stillness. The longest track here, "Illumination," which is almost 28 minutes in length, hovers in one timbral range for most of it while keeping the music flowing and pouring through, changing like waves on a beach. Elsewhere, on the title track, all of the melodic fragments are engaged in a process of unfolding at the same time. It's quite remarkable that so much could happen in what seems like a static music. There are moments when the "bliss" element can be overbearing, especially on the last track, "Blessing," but in all, this is as good as new age music gets.

Amida gives me the chills...

The good chills though. Amida is a relaxing song. The quality of the sound is good, and I feelt like I was lying outside somewhere in the middle of nowhere at night, where the only inhabitants were insects chirping as I lay on the grass and looked up at the stars. I totally reccomend this song. I'm glad I have discovered Deuter's work, its awesome!

Note To sHanDee

Would you stop it already with the Deep Buddha recommendation. Yes, I like Waterbone as well, but to give this CD a one star, only because it's not the Deep Buddha album is utterly ridiculous. Do you bother to take the time to actually listen to the CDs you are giving one star reviews to? I don't think you do. I think you are a troll, and probably in league with the Deep Buddha record company. This album is serene and blissful and I highly recommend it. Don't listen to what the other review says, because they have absolutely no idea what they are talking about.

Illumination Album

I meditate with this music, and I find peace of mind. I am peace.


Genre: New Age

Years Active: '70s, '80s, '90s, '00s

Like many artists in the contemporary instrumental realm, Deuter mixes acoustic and electronic instruments, ethnic influences, and sounds from nature -- only he's been doing it since the early '70s. Born in the German village of Falkenhagen, Deuter learned flute and taught himself to play guitar but was discouraged from pursuing music as a career. The trauma of a nearly fatal auto accident in 1970, however, motivated him to pursue his dreams. His first recording, D, was released on Kuckuck in 1971....
