Album Notes
"As the sky takes on the deep blue glow of evening, the time-bound bustle of day melts into the timeless dream space of night. For me, to take a walk in the waning light along the lake where I live has become an informal yet sacred ritual practice to process the day and re-center myself, either in solitude or with my husband, most often with a dog or two. My heart becomes calm when I listen to the evening songs of birds and the rustlings of animals, and I never tire of observing how the water glimmers and reflects the softening colors of dusk. Often I will find myself gazing at the sky, filled with gratitude for our planet Earth and for the gift of being present to witness all of her ever-changing beauty. These tracks all reflect bits and pieces of my own journey—including moments of joy as well as struggle—that have been evoked by this quiet but powerful time of evening, when darkness stretches across the land and the light moves to the other side of the earth." -Meg Bowles

May very well be, the best ambient-offering of the year!
Just released for June 2018, Meg Bowles; graces her legion of fans, with a brand new seven-fold, ambient-gem entitled: "Evensong: Canticles for the Earth". She opens with an expansive first-cut called: 'Hymnus'. Basically, a rolling-swirl of bleeps, against a backdrop of sweeping tonality shades. Which sets the stage thematically, for the very next selection. Immediately, the listener get's a deep sense of communing with a sky-bound, soaring flock that's highlighted against the clouds. As the light, begins to slowly fade in 'Migration at Dusk'. The 'Ridgewalker'; depicts the visage of a lone-hiker, silhouetted against the sky, on a solitary voyage of reflective, self-discovery. A very epic-cut in my humble opinion, with rich, dramatic overtones, and a meter that's perfectly counter-pointed. 'Chalice of Shadows' exhibits a very passionate, but soulful sense of animistic-spirituality about it. This is brilliant, compositional grandeur on a par with both Constance Demby, and Rudy Adrian. Then something wonderful happens; 'Berceuse for a Star Child'. Your ears are treated to a poignant lullaby for the planet earth, as the encroaching night takes full-command. Perhaps, one of the premier-cuts on this effort. 'Evensong' is one of the two longer-plays on this album. It carries me musically, back to 2013, and "The Shimmering Land" album. Another well-executed, and masterful glide through voice, synth-pads, and multi-faceted drones. I get a sense of primal-urgency from listening to it, but your personal interpretation, might vary greatly. The last track, 'Time and Light' sonically examines the connection to those far, twinkling lights of the ancient cosmos, and our planet's place in it. Another bravura effort by Meg Bowles, who may very well be, in contention, for having created the best ambient-offering of the year. May I add, that the mastering of this CD is also, impeccably achieved. If your a fan of Meg's previous projects, then this newest one, will be a must-have acquisition. There are only about dozen, or so ambient artists who reach this level of sophisticated artistry. Some of those being: Jon Jenkins, Erik Wollo, Chronotope Project, Simon Wilkinson, Csillagkod, Jonn Serrie, and the aforementioned; Constance Demby. Highly Recommended.
