Spirit Voyage Review
Their new CD, "Kismet," brings together their own beautifully crafted, internationally flavored organic electronica music with their gift of non-traditional songwriting. Their image generating orchestral style brings to life the reflectionary and meditational possibilities found within the ambient genre. You might hear sounds reminiscent of Brian Eno or The Edge (guitarist from U2), Michael Brook, David Parsons, Robert Rich or TUU. Together there is a perfect balance between silence and sound, building to emotional peaks that never divert the attention of the totally captivated listeners. Aurah's gentle textures of organic and electronic sounds and guitars provide the perfect resting place for the haunting vocals, opening a personally spacious place to be carried away.
Judith's voice is such an integral part of the music that it feels seamless with every breath. Even though his is not a household name, Dolds' creativity as a producer has given Enya and Celine Dion each a number one hit, Judith Martin and Marc Dold are extremely rare and unique artists.
Not solely from a musical point but that they live the philosophies they have learned and preach. For example, their lead is to look within yourself to find what's missing in your life, instead of judging or limiting yourself, and to understand that life is a journey. With this music as the backdrop, we will all be more inclined to go explore it!
Aurah's single, "Unmasking Days Of Sleep" is everything great new age music can be
I don't own and haven't heard the entire record. I bought "Unmasking Days Of Sleep" after hearing it on the Echoes radio program and it completely captivated me. It's nothing less than a brilliant, multi-layered new age anthem with a clear progression. The song grabs you and you willingly follow throughout it's almost eight minute length. At the end, you just want more, exactly what a great song should do. The sample on iTunes is ok, but not great, the guitar and backing vox drive "Unmasking Days Of Sleep" to its eventual climax. The sensitive guitar playing is simply wonderful. After a year of owning this song hardly a week goes by that I don't listen to it once or twice (or more I must admit) and I'm always sad when it is over. Buy it. This is the essence of the good things in iTunes, buying one fantastic song that enriches your life and brings happiness. Isn't something that will brighten your day worth 99 cents? I highly recommend this song (my rating applies only the song, "Unmasking Days Of Sleep" not the entire album).
