In Paradise based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
Valarien's guitar playing on In Paradise is exquisite. This is acoustic/ambient guitar music at it's finest. The CD is an hour long improvisational guitar meditation over electronic strings and ambient spaces, divided into three parts, without a break in the music. In Part 1 the music unfolds beautifully with the freshness of a new dawn, much as the cover painting "Daybreak" by the american romantic painter Maxfield Parish pictures. The music deepens in Part 2 and before you know it you are wandering through an Eden like Paradise and forgotten all memory of where you are or where you came from. When Part 3 three finally arrives and you are content to stay "In Paradise" indefinitely, it gets even better! In this last movement, it's as if the clouds veiling the heavens part and a spirtual light shines down, drawing you higher and higher into light. When the music finally ends you are returned to the beginning, with the peaceful sounds of nuture and wind chimes In Paradise. There's definitely a spiritual quality to this music, with a richer sense of melody, harmony and musicianship than is usual for "new age" music. For those who like really good guitar playing or if you like spiritual music that will wash over you like a new day after the rain, then get this CD!
