Minimalist meditation music

"This third album in the "Ambient" series seems definitely influenced by the minimalist movement; quickly-repeated, slightly varied motifs skirled by a very metallic-sounding harp. In contrast, Ambient 1 drifts and seems rather more song-like in its format. I like the concept of minimal music and its almost visual or textural effect created by the slight variations in sound that are built by repetition. So I enjoyed this a lot, but it's not for those who find this type of music stupifyingly dull. I was excited by the glistening sound of Laraaji's harp in "The Dance". The harp mixed with a percussive sound on some strings or with another instrument, but this percussive sound never overpowers the rhythmic beat of the harp motifs. This work is in three parts, similar sounding, but with variation in dynamics. "Meditation" is more spacey and dreamy, much more what you'd expect from Brian Eno. Deep notes mix with etherial harp, bell and string sounds. In short, if you like minimalist music, you will love this. Otherwise, think twice or hear a sample first."
...bathing in thousands of bright tones...

"Stunning! I don't agree with the people who claim this is the weakest album in the Ambient series. I find this one to be so utterly beautiful and exciting. Day of Radiance is such an appropriate name for this album. Laraaji has a way of constructing complex and fast melodies that yet retain a remarkable sense of space. Melodies within melodies. Higly recommended!"

"I really can recommend this album as one of my favourite CD's. The outstanding beauty of this music, the healing and relaxing sound of Laraaji's harp is somehow incompareable. Listen to this music when you soul needs some rest, switch your CD player on "repeat" and let the vibes of these sounds fill you rooms.
No.'s 4+5 are the highlights."
