Nestled away in England's New Forest National Park, composer Amberfern looks to the trees to guide him in creating beautiful, haunting music that captures the essence of the natural world. With his second release for Real Music, DISTANT HORIZONS - MEDITERRANEAN, the artist travels beyond the borders of his local greenery to the aquamarine grandeur of the coasts of Europe.
The warm strumming of the Spanish guitar lies at the heart of this recording, while Turkish ney flute, tambourines, oud and djembe give the music a shimmering Arabian flair. Throw in some piano, wooden flute, fretless bass and synthesizers and you have an album that effectively captures many of the musical tones and colors that intersect at this crossroads between continents. Above all, Amberfern keeps the musical environment gentle and pleasant, allowing for serene, slightly exotic ambiance that is useful for relaxation and healing practices.
