Henrik Hytteballe, aka The Haiku Project, once again takes us on a wide-ranging journey through our emotions as his music reaches inside the listener and gently plucks on our heart strings evoking a variety of feelings. The album is simply called Life, and the song titles reveal that the compositions reach from the depth of the oceans with the “Great Barrier Reef,” all the way to “The Bright Side of the Moon” and back again.
With so many submissions always calling for my attention here at Ambient Visions I’m never sure what to expect when I put a CD in the player or cue up some songs in my media player, but I must admit that the music on Kevin Wood’s latest album Eternal was a pleasant surprise.

Rajendra Teredesai's latest release for Real Music, entitled Moksha – The Path to Inner Peace, once again takes us on a meditative journey that uses his consummate skills both as a composer and as a flautist to coax listeners to shed their everyday concerns and stresses in exchange for almost 50 minutes’ worth of reflective time spent with him as the guide.
