Compassion is — quite easily — Peter Kater's deepest work. It might also be his best. David Darling (cello), Mark Miller (sax and flutes), and Chris White (vocals) support Kater, but his keyboards are also support. The primary and dominant instruments in the sound design are the singing bowls and gongs. The deep overtones of these ancient instruments surround the sweet textures of the acoustics. The subtle electronics enhance the bowls. The gongs punctuate the soundscape with exclamation points. The atmospheres are sedate and somber, yet they breathe new life into the listeners and the environments. Miller's sax recalls David Bulger's contribution to From the Dark Earth by Meg Bowles. This CD will appeal to fans of Bowles, Jonathan Goldman, and Deuter.
What a treat!
I looked and looked to find something this beautiful. Truly, this is more than worth the small price. The instrumentals are perfect, deep and complex. The harmonies are connected, smooth and unique. The work that went into this piece is nearly shocking. The detail is amazing; the result an excellence I have not seen since Libera and Zen Breakfast.
I am a Massage Therapist. I am always looking for nice relaxing music. This CD sure fits the bill. My clients are telling me that the music on this CD has relaxed them so much that they feel as if they have been in a dream state while awake. I am so glad that I downloaded this CD and the price is unbelievable! I feel that the bad review that was written about this CD is totally unfair. If you want beautiful, quiet, relaxing music, then download this CD.
Long Play compasive mood.
This 75 minute long track is excelent for relaxing, reading or just leave it while going to sleep. The combination of sounds (tibetan bowls) along with Peter piano is just right. Also you can't beat the price.
