Product Notes

Ocean is the GRAMMY® nominated, award winning album by four time Grammy nominee Michael Brant DeMaria. Ocean held the #1 spot on the New Age/World/Ambient Chart for 3 months and then went on to win two Zone Music Awards: BEST AMBIENT ALBUM OF 2009 BEST RELAXATION/MEDITATION ALBUM OF 2009 This CD is based on 25 years of research into the world of sound healing. Ocean is his second CD in the Healing Sound Series and takes the listener deep into the ambient sounds of the Ocean. He has been the featured musician for renowned poets Robert Bly and David Whyte and played and studied with Grammy winner David Darling in addition to many other Grammy and Grammy nominated recording artists. Michael writes in the liner notes: 'The Ocean brought all life to this planet. The Ocean is the great mother of the watersheds of earth - without which we could not live. The oceans of the world touch every continent, every people, every culture on our planet. They accept us all regardless of color, custom, language or belief. Much like the ever flowing rivers of the world, we take on different names and forms until we are ready to go home - to the place we began - our One Source - the Ocean of Being where life can always begin again with hope, love and life. These are my tone prayers and sound poems offered up in honor and respect of the wisdom of the ocean waters. This music served to heal me and revive me from the devestating hurricane seasons of 2004 and 2005 where we lost our home - so I dedicate them to all who are in need of peace, tranquility and healing in times of struggle, transition and transformation. Breathe, release, listen and let go.' Ocean is his second CD in the 'Healing Sound Series' and takes the listener deep into the ambient sounds of the Ocean. From Inside the CD: The Ocean brought all life to this planet. The Ocean is the great mother of the watersheds of earth - without which we could not live. The oceans of the world touch every continent, every people, every culture on our planet. They accept us all regardless of color, custom, language or belief. Much like the ever flowing rivers of the world, we take on different names and forms until we are ready to go home - to the place we began - our One Source - the Ocean of Being where life can always begin again with hope, love and life. These are my tone prayers and sound poems offered up in honor and respect of the wisdom of the ocean waters. This music served to heal me and revive me from the devestating hurricane seasons of 2004 and 2005 where we lost our home - so I dedicate them to all who are in need of peace, tranquility and healing in times of struggle, transition and transformation. Breathe, release, listen and let go. 'Driven by the need to heal from the devastation of the horrific hurricane seasons of 2004 and 2005, pianist/keyboardist and Native flute player Michael Brant DeMaria journeyed deep into the essence of Planet Earth's lifeblood, i.e. The oceans which surround us. The result is Ocean, a mesmerizing, fluid mixture of atmospheric ambient soundscapes and subtle Native flute/fusion influences and textures. As he did on the critically acclaimed Siyotanka, DeMaria brings discernible cinematic overtones to his layered keyboards and echoed piano, sometimes accompanied by haunting and plaintive flute melodies. By turns, meditative, serene, subtly dark, and softly mysterious, Ocean is an immersive album...Dive deep into this Ocean and discover your personal connection to our world's watery soul.' - Bill Binkelman, Zone Music Reporter 'The aspect of Michael's music that impressed me most on his previous release, Siyotanka was his ability to touch the listener with the power needed to heal them... and this new release shows that talent at an even deeper level.. Well crafted and full of spirit, DeMaria's music touches your mind through passages that (at times) feel like your brain is being massaged.. This kind of music deserves your undivided attention..you should make sure you set aside the full hour for an uninterrupted listen - preferably with headphones on. MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.' - Improvijazzation 'Ocean'...plunges us into a sea of tranquility, repose, and well being - the sounds ply our body with quiet, hypnotic, and ethereal themes, full of mystery...creating a landscape of exceptional beauty. It is a pleasure to hear this work that seeks the softening of our very being and allows us to venture into magical worlds away from our stressful day to day lives." - A Ultima Fronteira "There is an epic scale to this album, almost symphonic on some tracks and highly orchestrated - and all performed by one man!... Drift in your floatation tank to this and you will be truly in space...Yes, Ocean is very New Age, but I think it grows out of that and becomes an album which should appeal to those who listen to ambient and electronica. I could even imagine some imaginative DJs playing this in the chill out rooms to bring down ravers at the end of the night. Ocean is a worthy sequal to Siyotanka, and one that could be a huge hit. Highly recommended." -Borderland.
