Album Notes
This album was inspired by traveling up California's Highway 1 - Highway 1 is located on the coast of California (US). The area I most frequent is between San Simeon and Big Sur but have traveled much of its length. It's a known getaway for travelers.

What really intrigues me is how ancient the place really is. The rocks are prehistoric (as I guess everything is) and they sit out in the ocean as they did a million years ago. The crags of granite jet up through the low lying hills in San Simeon and create rugged canyons and steep sea cliffs on up into Big Sur (North some 65 miles) . The cypress trees have a very ancient look to them as does the ocean. At times hiking through some of these areas you can forget which physical time you are in :)

This is a professionally produced CD-R with laser printing on the CD, insert, and traycard.

Most of the songs are remembrances of places along this highway. For more info on Highway 1: http://www.bigsurcalifornia.org/

The music hear takes us into a terrace of moods and mysteries, full of ambient textures which unfold in glowing horizons with slowly breathing harmonic soundscapes. The focus is serene, meditational and uplifting the music into another sphere. The introduction of the guitar adds quite wondrous chords that massage the senses, a rainbow of brooding and sometimes haunting sounds that open a doorway to the stars. One of best ambient releases of the year.


Diatonis keeps a consistent, but creative route with Highway 1
In the tradition of previous releases, Diatonis has mixed serene ambient landscapes with some occasional subtle rhythms. No ethno-tribal influences on this title, just the laid-back feel of a nice drive up the coastal highway. A great addition to Diatonis' discography.
