mysticwolf75 I have been a fan for quite a few years now, and I think this is her best work yet, well worth the 4 year wait! Very beautiful. (This is also her first new release I bought through Bandcamp). I really wish she'd release her first 2 albums here, 1993's "Inner Space" and "Solstice Dreams". "Inner Space" is reminiscent of Robert Rich's earlier works like "Rainforest" and "Geometry", while "Solstice Dreams" is a pleasant instrumental holiday album I play every year at Christmas time. Favorite track: Cave of Secrets.

Paul Asbury Seaman Meg Bowles is one of the few female artists working in this genre and has only released five albums in the past 20 years. Blue Cosmos (1996) and From the Dark Earth (1999) are ambient/space music classics. It’s somehow fitting that her new album should come out on the day Vangelis died, given some similarities in their styles. Bowles's music has a more consistently reflective tone and is saturated with her distinctive gentleness and grace. Favorite track: Mountains Reaching for Stars.

about

A pilgrimage is a journey of inner transformation into the unknown, often made in solitude. For me, this is a metaphor for life.

Walking the path can be immensely arduous and challenging. Nevertheless, many wonders accompany us in ways that subtly guide and sustain the soul, allowing us moments of beauty, joy, and grace. The healing balm of Nature—including the whole spectrum of meteorological phenomena that constantly dance in and out of our awareness—is a constant presence, grounding and holding and energizing us in ways that help us to continue on, to keep putting one foot in front of the other again and again.

The soundscapes in this album evoke both earthly environments as well as dreamlike spaces not of this earth. Textural elements characteristic of both ambient music and space music are interwoven into a cinematic, orchestral style, creating a narrative arc that takes listeners up into vast, sweeping spaces as well as down into quiet, more intimate ones.

May the beauty and the mystery of the land and sky accompany you, wherever you may wander.
