A lot of music makes us feel good and that’s one of the reasons we listen. But what about music specifically-designed not only as an enjoyable listening experience, but also to positively-affect the vibrations within the atoms that make up our bodies? This is an album of new music by the group Acoustic Ocean that strives to bring to listeners a combination of healing, balance and harmony, emotional release, relaxation and rest, and increased energy.

Mostly acoustic and instrumental with a little wordless vocalizing, this CD (titled Light Returning) is getting extensive radio airplay and is already Top 10 on the international New Age Reporter/Zone Music Reporter charts.

The music was created by two versatile therapists who are trained in yoga, stress management, emotional well-being techniques and sound healing. These professionals in the healing arts previously were singer-songwriters with 20 years of world-touring and five folk-pop albums to their credit.

After listening to the Acoustic Ocean Light Returning recording, if you just happen to feel a lot better, you might want to use this music like vitamins and make it a part of your regular regimen.

The whisper or the ocean waves
And shouts of seagulls under water
Give you a long awaited rest,
Return forgotten taste of life

The music of the album “Light Returning” has a deep relaxation effect. It deeply penetrates into your mind and gives it a sensation of peace and tranquility. As you can read on the album’s sleeve: “Each original composition is built around a simple melodic theme played on the Celtic Harp”. Therefore the music of the whole album “Light Returning” is listened to very easily. The artists skillfully add the other acoustic instruments to their music. There are acoustic guitars, bass, piano, hammered dulcimer, mandolin and other instruments including enchanting women’s vocals.

One must say that Acoustic Ocean is a duo formed by the two renowned musicians and recording artists Morgan and Phelan. After a successful 20-years touring career they relocated to Hawaii and pursued careers in the healing arts. I‘d like to add to the aforesaid that both musicians are certified yoga teachers. And this fact is strongly reflected in their music. It has incredible clearness and purity.

What else can one want to tell about the “Light Returning” album? Its sound is very rich because the artists use various sound effects. This is a truly wonderful release in healing of the mind and body series. The music of “Light Returning” reminds you that life is beautiful and you can spend every moment of it in joy and creation. It’s so simple…
