If there were one sound in the world that almost anyone would recognize as being synonymous with tranquility, it would have to be the gentle crash of ocean waves on the shore. The oft-used natural effect seems to make a soothing complement for nearly any instrument one can challenge it with. In the case of OCEAN DREAMS from flutist Dean Evenson, the turbulent tide is not just a nice compliment for his silver flute playing, but the perfect partner. Along with d'Rachael on harp and Dudley Evenson on handharp, the sweet melodies and wildlife sounds coalesce to form a tender and slightly abstract work that captures the essence of a quiet beach. For added relaxation benefits, Evenson weaves alpha brainwave frequencies into the fabric of the album, which stimulates the mind's creative areas, raises awareness and settles the body into deep peace.
About the Artist
In 1979, husband and wife team and Soundings of the Planet co-founders, Dean and Dudley Evenson, decided to blend their peaceful music of flute and harp with the sounds of nature and start their own record label. They wanted to carry the message of the earth through their music into urban areas where decisions about the planet were being made. This inspiration came to them directly from their contacts with Native American elders and medicine people. They were also motivated to create a more peaceful and meditative form of music that would support yoga and massage and their evolving spiritual path.
What started out as interest from massage therapists and innovative health care practitioners has grown to be an important adjunct to healing in both mainstream as well as alternative medicine. After three decades, their albums and videos continue to provide Peace Through Music and Health Through Music to a world in great need of healing solace.
