2005 Celestial Harmonies (CD)
INNER PLACES is an outstanding new release from New Zealand-based veteran synth and Indian music artist David Parsons. This is one of drifting, mysterious beauty. No rhythmic elements are present on the CD, leaving the focus towards the mystical atmospheres and cloud-like pieces. Highly recommended to those who want to float into a pure mystical drift.
From the Celestial Harmonies press release: "I wanted to create some music that could possibly provide sonic worlds which the listener could journey to in their imagination. The word 'loka' in Hindi/Sanskrit can mean a world or realm of experience. The track titles simply translate as First World, Second World, etc. I did not intend to color the mind with descriptive titles, so that you, the listener, could create your own realm of experience." -- David Parsons, Wellington, New Zealand December 2004
From his homeland in New Zealand, David Parsons travels frequently to Asia for spiritual and musical inspiration. After collecting musical samples and studying different musical and cultural traditions, Parsons returns to his studio to integrate these influences with his own experiences. In the process, he bridges disparate elements with seamless grace, and creates a unique musical affirmation of our common humanity and cultural endowment.
Parsons' recordings make the Eastern sensibility comprehensible to the Western listener and formulate a unique and captivating new expression. To Parsons' credit as a musician, composer and performer, he has evolved into a rare and highly acclaimed producer of cultural music traditions. His work is often featured in film, television and radio scores, and continues to be widely praised by reviewers.
