Koch takes you to a world full of peace and magic, where the melodies and sounds are part of the context that creates the magnificent compositions.” —reviewsnewage.com
Each track conjures an idyllic day, a dreamy journey through nature, as though Monet’s pastels have come to life. Concerns float away while basking in this gorgeous hour of Koch’s signature music. Describing his recording process for Day of Life, Koch said, “Flooded with good memories, I became more in the composing of it.” You can become more in the listening.
With orchestrations to match the majesty of the spectacular Olympic National Park, Mars Lasar's musical panoramas sweep across glacial valleys, through lyrical alpine meadows, and into the secret shaded worlds of the moss-draped Northwest rainforest. The music moves effortlessly from grand, inspired vistas to details of delicate beauty. It celebrates the area’s earliest Native American settlers and, earlier still, the primal forces that originally shaped this ice-hewn land. This is the finest album yet from Lasar, whose heroic melodies were used for the televised 1992 Olympic Games in Albertville, France.
