ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
“The music is not in the notes, but in the silence between” - Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
An exploration of the interconnectivity between emotions, music, and the earth, The Silence Between is a musical journey from the breathtaking elements and landscapes of North America into the deep recesses of the human spirit - and even into the notes themselves, and the spaces between them.
The second release by Timothy J.P. Gomez, The Silence Between includes 13 original compositions showcasing the purity and tranquility of the solo native American flute. Timothy’s fusion of simplicity and complexity reflects the duality observed in nature and the recognition of that duality in ourselves. The Silence Between is a portal to the places we feel most centered, at peace and in harmony - in both the tangible world and within ourselves.

An amazingly artistic album as fluent as a summer wind
I have always found the sound of the flute to be the most haunting and mood creating of all musical instruments, fortunately for me I am surrounded by friends of the flute, Nigel Shaw, David Rose and Jan Michael Looking Wolf, even my wife Chrissie Sheppard plays, so it’s become an integral part of my life now, as much as I think that this album will be as well, as it is one of the most reflective and meaningful performances I have heard for quite some time.
The opening piece is called Among the Giants, for me I could picture myself standing in a forest of redwoods listening to this piece, it is outstanding. The duel nature of this composition is fascinating, the higher pitches beautifully morph into lower more subtle tones as the track weaves its way onward.
Emerald Pools is a wonderfully hypnotic offering that seems bathed in a timeless energy; for me the flute is always a masterful narrator of imagination and tone, the imagination draws a narrative of an old time worn lake, where denizens of the deep green waters, peak the mirrored surface to create ever outward ripples, the tone sounds like the very essence of nature itself.
Well we’re moving slowly towards winter now as October beckons, and the performance by Gomez here is deep, sullen and slow, depicting perfectly this most torpid of months. Winters Lament says it all for this most languorous of times, through the sound of Gomez’s flute we can even feel the chill wind of a long hard winter, bring tears of ice from our very soul, in what is a stunning performance.
Almost the mirror piece of the previous track is up next and called Desert Serenade. There is indeed warmth about this offering that is most pleasantly received, but what charmed me about this composition was the sublime fluency of playing by the artist, on a bright and uplifting musical presentation.
An interesting musical narrative can now be found on this next arrangement called Into the Subterranean Sea. The accomplished execution of this piece is beautifully thought out, and the pace is also perfect, one truly feels like they are on the beach of middle earth, and gazing out at the western seas; a vast performance here by the artist.
Passage to the Spirit Realm was one of my favourite offerings; there was also a slight Celtic feel to this track as well, which added an extra flavour to the composition. One could feel a rhythmic approach here that seemed to almost play the role of the pied piper, perhaps drawing the spirits towards the realm of the otherworld.
Timothy J. P. Gomez has really created a colourful and masterful album here, and that can be emphasised further by listening to the title track, yes that moment when the canvas of the main story can be drawn, and what an opportunity is taken by the artist. The Silence Between is both deep and addictive to listen to; one is almost perched on the edge of the seat waiting for the next note to be played, in what is a truly mesmeric offering.
Reflections of the Deep, it’s a track that really does what it says on the can, the presentation is pitch perfect, one that really slows down the mind and allows the senses to sink to a deeper level during meditation. I know this because I have literally just tried it, the mixture of playing here is a delight to listen to, the interplay of flute with itself is utterly magical, and I look forward to going in deep with this piece again sometime soon.
The smoothness of operation here is magnificent, and on A Sanctuary of Sound, I think I have found my personal favourite off the album, the sheer ambience of this piece was sublime, one could easily be alone in a vast dimension, perhaps a lush green forest, where all that can be heard is the calling tone of this most magical of flutes, a simply uplifting and spiritual experience can be found within this offering.
As we tread the path of our ancestors towards the conclusion of this recording, we come across a track entitled Alpenglow, and it seems natural energies of this album are in the fore once more, this wonderful presentation on flute was addictive to listen to, so much so, that I felt compelled to listen to this track alone several times before writing; a beautifully colourful musical narrative indeed.
The description of the title is key here, this next piece is entitled Canyon Solitude, whilst I have yet to visit one in the states, I have been in a canyon here in Cyprus, and I would be the first to say that this offering would be perfect for it. Within my mind’s eye Gomez literally transports me there to watch the sun fall and the shadows grow, in a splendid performance indeed, one indicative of a portrayal of solitude in the wide open beauty of nature.
There are very few instruments that can illustrate the quality of nature’s gift like the flute, and on this, our penultimate composition called Echoes of Light, we have a fine example of an enactment of tone and shade, of sound and luminosity. Gomez stands supreme here in creating a short, but extremely empowering musical narrative of both echoes and light.
So we have reached the final gateway of the album, it is called Dark Tides and Distant Stars, one to be played on the far reaches of a midnight ocean perhaps. This is a real stand out offering, and the perfect one to end the album with. I adored the textures within this composition, one that was so well played several images of possible locations for this arrangement came to mind, easily the most graphic piece off the release.
The Silence Between is a masterful album by Timothy J. P. Gomez, one that is amazingly artistic, one that creates images within the mind’s eye, and also one that is as fluent as a summer wind. Gomez has delivered a fine album to us all here, one the realms of flute fans will be eager to snap up quickly, but for those who are intrigued by the instrument, and always wondered about owning a flute based album, then this would be the perfect place to start, as the artist has made the music within accessible to all.
