Product Description

“This CD has been composed with the idea to reflect the moods of the night, its silence, its soft songs, when the human mind has gone to sleep to dream. East of the Full Moon evokes images of the night sky, the moon appearing behind clouds, the world losing its stark colors, and trees becoming just shadows against the moon. The stars expand our awareness to a vast infinity and an immense silence, which is the only music there is. All music is an effort to bring this silence into existence, where the music becomes a reflection of something bigger.” -Deuter

Reviews

    :

    “With the plethora of new age ‘healing’ and ‘relaxing’ CD’s available, it is a pleasure to have the chance to review one as distinctive as East of the Full Moon. Yes, it IS relaxing, and soothing, but it is also elegant and richly evocative of, as the artist puts it, the night sky, the moon appearing behind clouds, the world losing its stark colors, and trees becoming just shadows against the moon . . . when the human mind has gone to sleep to dream. An excellent album through and through. I would love to hear him score for the big screen, although he certainly uplifts this, his chosen genre of musical expression. Deuter performs on the alto flute, piano, other keyboards, drums, tambura, pan flute, and harp, with co-musicians Adi Pieper and Klaus Wiese on the tabla and kinara, respectively.”

  2. Bill Binkelman, Wind and Wire

    :

    “On his latest release, East of the Full Moon, pioneering new age artist Deuter paints on a broader canvas than on some previous recordings. While he allows his nuanced and warm piano to perform most of the musical magic,his instrumental versatility and virtuosity is in abundance throughout the CD’s nine tracks. The music flows effortlessly from the warmth of the opening track ‘Daemmerschein,’ to the haunting flute and strings of the title tune, easing into East Indian fusion textures on ‘Vibrant Dusk,’courtesy of gentle tamboura drones draped over minimal echoed piano and featuring mellow tabla rhythms. The piano and strings on ‘Marfa Lights I’ stroll alongside a plaintive recorder while the shimmering synths of ‘Moon-Silvered Clouds’ paint a soundscape befitting the song’s title.Whether majestic and haunting (‘Black Velvet Flirts’ with its soprano saxand hushed chorales) or lilting and full of the vibrancy of life itself(the uptempo album closer ‘Dawn Shimmer’), East of the Full Moon once again clearly illustrates why Deuter has few, if any, peers when it comes to crafting elegant beautiful music which speaks to the human soul with simplicity, charm, and grace.”

    “In these busy times there is one musical artist that continues to define quiet joy, warmth, and a musical heart-felt celebration of life . That artist is Deuter. “East of the Full Moon” should appeal to anyone who is interested in genuine music for meditation, yoga, quiet times, and who may use the music in home, school or office settings to enhance the environment. “East of the Full Moon” will see many people pushing the repeat button on their CD players to enjoy the depth that comes forth after repeat listenings. Recommended!”

  4. Jason Victor Serinus, Music Critic

    :

    “A self-described hermit/monk/wolf, Deuter lives deep in the forests of New Mexico where he consistently creates some of the most beautiful, spiritually attuned music in the New Age catalogue. Playing a variety of instruments, including keyboards, sitar and synthesizers, East of the Full Moon finds Deuter in a pensive, reflective mood. Most of the compositions reflect a sweet celestial longing, as from a soul wishing to draw nearer to the source. As we’ve come to expect from this venerable master, simplicity of melodic line never devolves into hawkish sentiment. Rather, Deuter’s exquisite sense of taste and confidence in the other-dimensional nature of his creations produces music that soothes the spirit, freeing the mind to journey to a place of peace. A few selections include mild percussive beat; the rest flow in an unbroken stream of heart-touching reverie.”

    “East Of The Full Moon,released in 2005, evokes the stillness of the night with a series of deep rich piano, flute, harp, and keyboard melodies interwoven into a tapestry of dreamy music. The slow-paced and reflective tracks are ideal for relaxation or meditation.”

    “While Deuter’s music is usually promoted as an accompaniment for meditation or bodywork, the fact is that it makes for excellent listening, too. As free and flowing as the music is, it has a complexity and structure that is found in the most compelling new age instrumental works. East of the Full Moon is a musical meditation on the night—its silence, its softness, its ability to expand our awareness. Piano, flute, harp and keyboards are the main instruments on this CD, with a little bit of gentle percussion here and there. The sound overall is graceful and elegant, relaxing and engaging.The CD is programmed as a journey, it begins with “Dammerschein” (the rays of twilight), and ends with “Dawn Shimmer,” which includes recordings of actual bird songs—a refreshing wake-up after a long and gentle journey.”

    “Minimalism is a rare art, and a genius like German New Age composer and flautist Deuter makes it look easy. Consider this the sign of a pure soul, one that can dissolve into the sound it makes and speak for the night and the moon like an interpreter. With just warmth and beauty as his textures, Deuter’s music is as inviting as a warm pair of clean socks after shoveling the snow. He melts time to a standstill then paints with the dripping light from the frozen setting sun. East of the Full Moon is an instrumental work that enhances nearly every occasion that could benefit from intimacy, emotional tenderness, vulnerability, and the need of tears long repressed by the needs of the day. The space where this music plays is safe by its playing. ”
    Dämmerschein” starts on some gentle piano notes, gradually opening up to synthesizer waves that glimmer over low piano notes that boom under the waves. Chimes tinkle as a synth voice echoes and Deuter’s flute comes down in a hawk’s widening gyre, a single note extended outward in slow, widening spirals. As beautiful as these peaks of angelic light are, the minimalist piano moments resonate strongest, as in the gentle high notes tapping out through “Marfa Lights II,” the angelic voices of “Black Velvet Flirt,” or the open-ended move into the soft, soul-shuddering melodics of “Moon-Silvered Clouds.
    As Deuter writes in the liner notes, East of the Full Moon is meant “to reflect the moods of the night˜its silence, its soft songs˜when the human mind has gone to sleep to dream different dreams.” Listen to this album and feel the gratitude for the day you’re letting go of and the night you’re soon to embrace, the deep sadness as his minor key melodies ride into bliss and you hold on and surrender. All that you are losing in the setting sun will be returned in every star if you can ride Deuter’s music close enough to look. Such deep stargazing needs dark as much as light, and the patience to fill in the space a minimalist leaves open with your own pure soul and all-seeing heart.”
