Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Jonathan Widran
Throughout the 2000s, six-time Grammy nominee Peter Kater took the therapeutic nature of his melodic piano music to a higher level with several series of recordings specifically designed around nature and healing-related themes -- first on the four-volume Elements Series set exploring Earth, Water, Air, and Fire for Real Music 2005 and then, between two outside projects with guitar great Dominic Miller, five volumes of Healing on Point of Light Records. Kater takes the same thematic, meditational approach to this gentle and gorgeously performed and produced work inspired by his love for the Hawaiian Islands and the planet's oceans. Featuring Kater's mystical and dreamy ...

All Music Guide - Jonathan Widran
Throughout the 2000s, six-time Grammy nominee Peter Kater took the therapeutic nature of his melodic piano music to a higher level with several series of recordings specifically designed around nature and healing-related themes -- first on the four-volume Elements Series set exploring Earth, Water, Air, and Fire for Real Music 2005 and then, between two outside projects with guitar great Dominic Miller, five volumes of Healing on Point of Light Records. Kater takes the same thematic, meditational approach to this gentle and gorgeously performed and produced work inspired by his love for the Hawaiian Islands and the planet's oceans. Featuring Kater's mystical and dreamy piano floating atop hypnotic atmospheres and accompanied by the occasional touch of acoustic bass, cello, soprano sax, and bamboo percussion, the hourlong meditation is evenly divided into four other thematic natural elements as per the album title but seems designed for a free-flowing listening experience. Though the beautiful dreamscape he creates makes for a perfect relaxation or massage soundtrack, the brief liner notes remind the listener that the pianist/composer's work is akin to painting on a "canvas of love." The setting and source of his ambient magic are further revealed by the album's subtitle Aloha Au Ia 'Oe, the Hawaiian expression for "I Love You."

    being a lifelong musician and having lived decades with music an

    being a lifelong musician and having lived decades with music and the Nature as my lifelines, I can honestly and with great heart say that this work of heart is easily one of the most beautiful I have ever, ever, ever heard and experienced. it is very clear that the music was created from and with great love and you can hear and feel that the music is being performed from that place as well. and with the magnificent whales lending their voices to this beautiful work, this exquisite work feels like a gift not just from the musicians but also from the natural world, from the many creatures we share this earth with. with great and heartfelt enthusiasm, I encourage you to experience this musical work of heart, not just with your ears. listen also with your heart and your whole body. this is such a wonderful gift to us from those who create and perform music with such mastery and brilliance and heart.
