ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
If there is such a thing as New Age Classical then this is it. Listening to Douglas King is like listening to a fusion of Liz Story, George Winston and Keith Jarrett with Chopin, Mozart and Bach.

Dr. Douglas king is a former CEO who served three governors and three university presidents in public service. But early in his life, he was a keyboard performer.

After attending the prestigious Wisconsin Conservatory of Music, he won awards at juried piano performance competitions attended by thousands of people. He briefly played on television, in clubs and for special events. But he stopped to pursue another career: his passion for the noble social purposes of public service.

He was candidly recorded in hundreds of private keyboard sessions. Those who listened said they never heard anything quite like it before or since. They urged him to share his music. But he remained a reclusive enigma, making only impromptu appearances and he donated his grand piano to a Buddhist healing center.

Then one day hundreds of people heard him play and they requested copies of his recordings. Their enthusiasm coaxed him into finally releasing some CDs. Now a niche audience of thousands of adventurous listeners around the world follows his music.

The tracks are spontaneous moments that were captured live as they happened. The tracks are raw. You are listening to them as they were played at different times in different places on different keyboards - unpolished with nuance, quirky unaccountable effects, miking artifacts and background.

These ambient recordings reveal serendipitous transients and overtones that manifest in mysterious dances of harmonics that sing like aural dust floating in a hush of wind lit by a prism of iconic melodies in an evening sunlight.

The music is a mesmerizing, collage of eccentric keyboard melodies. They stick in your mind like musical worms.

It is an eclectic blend of genres; an unconventional salad of unexpected sounds and styles that defy categories. Like themes from movies not yet made. Art not just entertainment.

Some songs are relaxed; some are intense. Some are long; some are short. Some are warm; some are atonal. Some are rhythmic; some are halting. Some are familiar; some are odd. But they all have one thing in common:

They are deceptively simple melodies. You will remember how they made you feel.
