Back of CD says: I have always loved the musicality of the waves of our oceans. Unlike a musical composition, which has a beginning and an end, waves play their music in a timeless fashion, not going anywhere, not reaching towards some goal but singing about the eternity of the present moment. Waves reveal their music only to listeners who allow themselves to sink deeper and deeper into the sounds - sounds which seem to be just noise on the surface. But then, upon reflection, the waves play with a richness and fullness. So, allow a memory of the ocean to emerge... envision the tide, feel the salt air, lean back and relax. There is a place within us where there are no more goals to reach, no more roads to travel, no more maps to follow, no more philosophies to create, no more strategies to construct. In this place within, there is peace and stillness, and with that, a fulfillment, which has always been there, May this music help to touch this place in you. C.G. Deuter
Dictionary Terms Explained
- Musical artist
Deuter is an internationally acclaimed musician and composer who’s recorded and released over 50 albums in his career so far. He specialises in creating New Age music, combining his love for acoustic and electronic instruments with the wonderful sounds of nature and ethnic influences.
Deuter was born in Germany and taught himself to play the guitar, flute and harmonica. Although he always loved music, it wasn’t until he was involved in a near fatal car crash in his early 20s that he finally decided his true vocation in life was to work as a musician. As a result, his first album, D, was released in 1971 and he’s gone on to produce a wide variety of much-loved albums.
Many of Deuter’s early recordings are meditative and contemplative and reflect elements of Deuter’s own spiritual search. He was one of the first musicians to successfully blend together Eastern and Western traditions and much of his music is inspiring, uplifting and full of spirit.
Since his first album in 1971, Deuter has continued to be passionately involved in creating and composing music, bringing out at least one album almost every year since, and his wonderful repertoire is enjoyed by people worldwide.
