The music for Parallel Path has been the result of several years of dedicated work, finding it's inspiration from many of the natural wonders and simple pleasures in life. In his debut release, keyboardist and composer Harrison Edwards has truly captured the awe and beauty of the majestic view from the mountaintops of Acadia National Park, the peaceful serenity of Skyline Drive, and the breathtaking, snow covered landscapes of Antarctica. These are among the images recreated in this original collection of twelve richly orchestrated instrumental songs. The use of Harrison's unique blend of acoustic and synthesized instrumentation generated by an array of sound modules and synthesizers, has resulted in music that is imaginative and energizing. The sounds of acoustic guitar, grand pianos, flutes, string sections, percussion, and lush, exotic synthesized sounds evoke the imagery inspired by these experiences. Harrison's music features lyrical melodies that continuously evolve over changing harmonies ranging from classical to contemporary. Strong rhythmic percussion and bass lines, rooted in Harrison's start in his musical life as a drummer and percussionist, provide a solid foundation for his compositions.
