LA YOGA MAGAZINE – April 2, 2013:
“Terry Oldfield’s latest release is one of those records capturing the spirit and penetrating into the unseen realm of inner harmony using melodic flute solos that project sweet and joyful images. Oldfield is a critically acclaimed master artist who generates the sounds of nature and blends it with his skills on flutes and pan pipes that blow right into the spirit where the dreaming is restorative.This album consists of twelve pieces featuring magical flute solos by Oldfield with the accompaniment of light pads and tasteful sounds that promote regenerative healing. The CD opens with “Olympus” which sounds like a mythological calling of soul from the footsteps of Athens while also channeling the bird calls from a rainforest. “Spiral” uses ascending arpeggiating patterns springing up from the earth and flowing out into space using an ethereal sounding flute that blends well with the orchestral accompaniment. “Dance of the Nymphs” is more frivolous and dainty and uses the pipes to project enchanting images that cascade over the mystical hills using simple but effective pitches in an inviting key. “Ancient Water” provides a still life image put to music that is proverbially celestial and sweet.
The production on the album is first-rate and I liked his choice of synth pads, though I sometimes felt that he could have benefited from more instruments to give the compositions more depth.
If you are a fan of enchanting flute music mixed with orchestral pads that trigger the imagination, you will enjoy these compositions. The musical ideas are fluent and active which keeps the mind moving through the images. This album is nicely suited specifically for Reiki healing sessions and would sound best against a spa environment or any healing session that is conscious and connected to an awareness of the process.”
