CD, Private Release, 1998
This is a great cd filled with dreamy music in the best tradition, but not so soft that it runs into new age. This remarkable music is able to reflect the grandeur of nature surrounding the talented Norwegian musician Christian Welde, who takes you on a relaxing journey without things getting too quiet.
This musician has done well and sounds original in many ways. Only the second track is more up-tempo with a nice sequence & beat. Then things slow down again with descriptive soundscapes and twinkling sounds, which work like a warm banket in cold days.
The fourth track offers some vocal additions, in the eighth track flute is added to the engaging electronic textures. Undeniable, subtle influences of space music can be noticed in the following track "Change of Season" before the album concludes with two introspective soundscapes.
Not to mention that this cd is very well produced and composed for an amateur-recording (which is not the case, by my reconning!). So it will be clear that I highly recommended this recording to those looking for a good piece of music...
