Universe Dance

by Mark McGourley

Enjoy a soundscape of meditative and melodic instrumental tunes as flutes, guitars, strings, pianos and more paint tapestries of relaxation that color your senses and fill your imagination with scenes of nature on a journey through space and time that is sure to soothe the soul and renew the spirit of young and old alike. The peaceful songs on this album symbolize the cycles of life on many levels touching on philosophical concepts of creation and re-creation represented through dichotomous themes such as birth/death, morning/night and spring/winter. The resonatiing primary theme focuses on rebirth with the idea that the only constant is change and as each cycle ends there are always new beginnings...

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
This is Mark's debut release which conisists entirely of his own compositions. He performed all the instruments and also arranged, recorded and produced the entire album himself. He has decades of experience as a professional performer as well as a sound and recording engineer and the quality of this CD reflects his expertise in all these areas. Although the songs utilize orchestrations of many instruments, the melodies are primarily inspired by his love of the Native American flute, an instrument first gifted to him by his mother more than 20 years ago. The opening of the liner notes reads: "Dedicated to my ever loving and everlasting mother June Edna Loder McGourley 1/7/1935 - 7/12/2010". The NA flute is known for its healing qualities and Mark has felt its effects as he played in nursing homes and even when its melodies provided a peaceful path for his mother as she crossed over. You will also feel the meditative, relaxing and healing powers as you listen to his music. Several people including those in health care professions have provided testimonials to Mark of this healing phenomenon. It's amazing that an artist quite often is not fully aware of the power his or her own music projects as it ripples across the universe...

HERE ARE SOME LINER NOTES FROM THE CD:

The universe is composed of vibrations from very low frequencies to very high frequencies. The lower frequencies are sound waves - with some so low they are inaudible to the human ear. The higher frequencies are light waves - with some so high they are invisible to the human eye. Yet they are all vibrations that run in cycles which are represented as waveforms and these waves ebb, flow and ripple forever over space and time...

Objects in space interact with each other by forces that attract and repel over time resulting in gyro-like spinning motions. All these objects begin to dance around each other in circles all over the universe. The music for the dance is composed and performed by the various vibrations of frequencies generated by all these energies. Together they are a celestial orchestra performing the "Song of the Stars" and we can observe this symphonic ballet as we peer out at the stars, planets and galaxies in our night sky...

All beings also vibrate at certain frequencies which may vary from time to time. When our energies vibrate at a harmonic pitch with the freqencies surrounding us we resonate and become in tune with our world and the cosmos. It is a scientific fact that the universe still contains the exact same amount of energy that it started out with at its inception. No more or no less - and this remains constant into infinity. All the various forms of energy don't ever dissipate but simply transform into different entities and redistribute as they blend with the other forces of the cosmos into eternity...
