gem of creative inspiration

writingtreewalking

i have been listening to "M'Ocean" for many years. the track "M'Ocean" is one of the greatest pieces of music i have ever heard. i have listened to it for "years" as a background for my creative process. it has never been boring nor tiring, a million dollar piece and for me one of the most important works of new age music that has truly helped in my life.

They Say All Music Guide

M’Ocean is another Earth Turtle Music reissue by Michael Stearns. He released it first as Light Play on cassette on the Continuum Montage label in 1983. In 1984, Sonic Atmospheres released it on cassette and CD. Tracks two through six were originally written for live performances. Stearns composed and performed track one — “Sirens” — on an Oberheim OB8 synthesizer, one of the first digitally controlled analog synths. He created the piece as soon as he set up the synth. Track seven — “Walking Song” — is a short Igor Stravinsky piece that Stearns transcribed for the synthesizer. The music is vintage and classic Stearns. The soundscapes are bright and elegant as only he creates. The rhythms are subtle, even transparent. The atmospheres are huge, warm, and inviting. This is music for wandering in the heart, mind, and soul. Stearns is in a league of his own. There are few — if any — discs comparable to this one. It is essential. – Jim Brenholts
