"I have been facinated with the human voice, the ultimate instrument, for a while it was with great joy when I heard Annette Sing and I found a quality in her voice, a love for life and a lightness which I have been expressing through my music. This opportunity to create music together allowed me to explore new territory in my musical world out of the love we share for music grew this album" Deuter.
"Deuter is a treasured presence among composers. Deuter's tracks mix Canror's healing voice with his playing guitar, flute, synthesizer and drums. The results are very beautiful" Home Theater Hifi
The unparalleled celestial soundscapes that Deuter is best known for have attained an even more expansive quality with the addition of the heavenly vocal stylings of Annette Cantor. The sonic textures of voice and keyboard create a profoundly relaxing musical sanctuary.
Note from Chris: The gorgeous, lush vocals of Annette with Deuter's unassailable propensity to create compelling music gives this CD the thumbs up and probably my favorite from Deuter.

About the Author
Deuter is the seminal New Age musician, active for over 30 years! Also a Reiki practitioner, Deuter lives and works in the mountains of Santa Fe, NM, creating the contemplative, healing music he has become renowned for. Through feeling, awareness and experience, and constantly inspired by the natural world around him, he creates music that transports the listener to a space of peacefulness and wellbeing. He continues to earn and master an ever-expanding array of instruments including the drums, shakuhachi, cello, koto, sitar, Tibetan singing bowls, santoor, buzuki, and keyboards.
Deuter was one of the first artists on the Celestial Harmonies Kuckuck label with thirteen titles, as well as the musical score of a picture poem released on the MonteVideo label. These recordings offer his unique uplifting melodies played on flute, guitar and synthesizer, blended with the sounds of nature. His creations incorporate a lightness of spirit, a depth of vision and a musical medley of East and West.
Deuter himself is a product of both East and West, born in 1945, in a small village of post-war Germany. As a child, he learned flute and taught himself guitar and harmonica. Together, these Kuckuck releases represent the first twenty-one years of Deuter's exceptional music, a spectrum of radiant outpourings and quiet meditations.
