ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
I greet all of you with joy! I offer you The Journey of Joy album as music for meditation, healing of body and soul, creative inspiration, and just for your pure listening pleasure. As I play the Kurzweil keyboard, various percussion instruments, and ethnic or ancient flutes, music emerges which will support our journey and life purpose with joy. You will experience lush harmonies, beautiful melodies, and the vitality which percussion instruments bring to music. Jennifer Patterson sings the sacred mantra in the third movement, "Journey".

Who am I?
I am a composer, performer, teacher, and recording artist. My music has found an audience throughout the United States and Canada, and, thanks to the Internet and distributors such as CDBaby, is sold in many countries of the world. From an early age I loved the outdoors. I was lucky enough to live out in the country where I could have great adventures exploring fields, woods, and streams near my home. When I was introduced to the piano, music became my other love. I played on the piano every day for hours as a child, and absorbed any classical music that my teachers could find for me to play, especially if the music had lots of passion and movement. Eventually music became my profession.

My own original music has been created because of my spiritual connection with nature, and my music education which gave me the tools I needed to play outside of myself the music that I heard inside of myself. However, it has been especially influenced by my travels into the Mayan lands of Central America and Mexico. As I walk through the rain forest of Guatemala, or the mountains of Honduras, or the plains of Mexico visiting sacred Mayan sites, my own spiritual life deepens. I compose music that captures the sacred feel for me of these lands and people, and of our Mother Earth. The Mayan Dream album was born in Mexico in 1987. The Beloved album, The Journey of Joy album, and Heart of Sky/Heart of Earth album have since been created from my continued journeys throughout the lands of the Maya.

What does my music sound like?
You may hear a resemblance to Beethoven's pastoral music, or Constance Demby, or maybe a style like Kitaro without the sweeping violins, or possibly a close relationship with some of the composers who use electronic sound to create "ohm" and the feeling of centeredness. Percussion instruments from various parts of the world are an important part of the story that my music tells. I also love to use sampled bird song, thunder, ocean waves…..all of these sounds that bring nature into my music. However, it is uniquely "Beverly" music with my own musical imprint.

I am grateful that I can send my music along to you via CDBaby. May it be a source and inspiration to you of joy, inner peace, and passion for life purpose.

Use for energy body work. Love it.
Music is perfect for relaxation and/or bodywork. I also enjoy just playing it as "background" when doing household chores or paperwork.
