THIS CD is about dreams - hopes for the future, echoes of the past, things dreamt both consciously and unconsciously. For me, each track inhabits its own distinct time and place, whether it be the icy Colorado winter, the blue waters of the Greek isles, a rocky, desolate planet, or a baby’s crib. I hope this music will nourish your spirit and inspire new dreams, new journeys, new courage. Thanks for listening, Rick.

“Artwork for the ears” - each piece truly illustrates a picturesque place in time or memories of days gone by, evoking unexpected emotions for the listener. Rick’s music is truly inspiring, thought provoking lyrical music...without words.

Rick's music have a melody; story-like feel to it!
I love this CD! It has excellent original music like no other New Age piano CD I have heard before. It's hardly what I would call New Age, since most of the piano music in this category is normally very soft and serene, with simplistic rhythms and arrangements played by "self taught" pianist (usually, or at least that's the impression I get). While SUCH DREAMS has risen to the next level in New Age piano music; complex harmonies, interesting rhythms, and keys structure, (not just the key of C!) Each piece comes off sounding full bodied, melodic, yet simplistic too! They are just beautiful! The more I listen, the more I hear and understand what I believe the pieces to be; Area 52, Deep October, At Last The Rain, and Lonely Planet are a few of my favorites. Rick has brought back the idea that music should have a melody; story-like feel not just notes and simple chords that go no where fasts. Thank you Rick for doing this album!

Excellent and Evocative!
“Such Dreams” is Rick Seaton’s follow-up to 2003’s “Ivory Angels.” This time out, all of the music is comprised of very impressive original piano solos that tell stories and express feelings and emotions. Most of the songs are fairly light and optimistic, and a few remind me of Kevin Kern’s gentle musical sunshine. A classically trained artist who has earned two degrees in music, Seaton’s compositions have the authority and confidence of someone who really knows what he’s doing and the ease of someone who is accomplished enough to be able to express whatever he wants without any technical difficulties. There are strong classical influences in Seaton’s music, but it is fresh, accessible, and contemporary, satisfying the more astute listener as well as someone who just wants to have some beautiful piano music in the background. From the cover artwork of “The Twelve Apostles,” a collection of natural limestone stacks off the shores of Australia, to the amazing closing track, this is an exceptional CD!

“Simpler Days” opens the CD on a buoyant, joyful note. Free and uncluttered, the piece suggests springtime and a very laid-back mood. “At Last the Rain” is somewhat more pensive, but still very peaceful like a gentle, refreshing rain. I really like “Area 52,” which is livelier and in a minor key, creating a bit more drama. Some sections sound improvised and have jazz touches, making this an especially interesting piece. The title track has a very simple, evocative melody that goes through many transformations in a kind of theme and variations style that becomes almost hymnlike near the end - lovely! “Tiny Hands” obviously conveys a father’s love and sense of wonder for his small children. “Lonely Planet” is a bit more abstract and moody, showcasing a variety of emotions ranging from reflective and quiet to sparkling and jubilant. My favorite track is the closing piece, “Smooth Aegean.” This one really demonstrates Seaton’s playing chops and classical background. Somewhat flashier than some of the other pieces, it describes the tranquility of a calm sea as well as the turbulence of a storm on the water.

“Such Dreams” is excellent from start to finish! Recommended!

Excellent! Can't say more...well written and performed.
Very unique, I'm glad I fell upon your music! It's different in the way the lefthand is written; extremely needed writing! Not the same old chords that you hear in most music. My favorite piece would most likely be Area 52. Truly an original idea! Keep writing!! Great stuff!
