If there is such a thing as New Age Classical ambient acoustic keyboard, then this is it. This music is a fusion of Liz Story, George Winston, Michael Hedges, Keith Jarrett and Jean Michel Jarre with Ravi Shankar, Chopin, Mozart, Franz Schubert and Bach. Dr. Douglas King is a former CEO who served three governors and three university presidents in public service. Now He has returned to his love for keyboard performance. After attending the prestigious Wisconsin conservatory of music, he won many awards at juried piano competitions and filled concert halls. He played on television, in clubs and for special events. Audiences of over one thousand people attended his performances. They received standing ovations and rave reviews in the press. Those who listened said they never heard anything quite like it before. One day hundreds of people heard him play at an art exhibition. They requested copies of his recordings and urged him to release albums. Now a niche audience of thousands of adventurous listeners around the world follows his music. The albums are all different. They are an eclectic collection of genres; an unconventional salad of unexpected sounds and styles that defy categories. The melodies are mesmerizing, collages that weave into your mind like musical worms. Doug has written and recorded hundreds of songs on many albums. They are different in style AND FEELING. Each one is unique. Some are relaxed; some are intense. Some are long; some are short. Some are warm; some are cool. Some are rhythmic; some are halting. Some are familiar; some are very odd. But they all have one thing in common: They are deceptively simple melodies. You will remember how they made you feel. This album contains live ambient analog recordings. The songs were played at different times in different places on different pianos. They offer acoustic transients that manifest serendipitous harmonics. The album plays well known, every day themes in unfamiliar ways. Relax and enjoy something you have not heard before.
