Set Free deserves a place next to the symphonic space-music classic of Novus Magnificat. This release journeys even deeper into the intensely moving electronic soundscapes that was developed in other recordings. Newly noticeable are rhythmic influences from the Balinese and African cultures that are unabashedly ritualistic and celebratory in nature. But, Demby has not forgotten her roots; the last four tracks, taken together, create a majestic celestial voyage for inner travelers. "Set Free is a recording of beautiful creative virtuosity....ecstatic, majestic, meditative spacemusic. " - New Frontier "The best music Constance Demby has ever written. I believe that Set Free will set a new standard. This is truly space/new age music at its best. Pick up Set Free and listen to a masterpiece." - Synthesis "An extraordinary release... Rhythmic influences that are unabashedly ritualistic and celebratory, plus a majestic celestial voyage for inner travelers. Set Free is a first-rate album by an artist in her prime. " - New Age Retailer "A rich, diverse and fascinating album, bubbling with vibrant life, full of tenderness and grand magnificence, joyful orchestral anthems and a general mood of celebration and high energy. - Heartsong Review "There is in this music a spirit of joy and breakthrough so deep, so full that it deserves a worldwide audience. Set Free demonstrates Demby's range, her capacity to explore another phase of the great cycle, another mood, another window on another world. - Pathways "The new album by Constance Demby is the most astonishing to date. There is visionary force, an internal dynamic and purity, and immense feeling in this work.. At a time when the Schulzes, Tangerine Dreams and others! still swear by their drum machines, here is electronic music which surpasses our expectations. "- Crystal Infos "Albums like this one will make you realize that we don't quite know yet what New Age music is all about. ....with its overflow of sounds, it might make much of your recorded collection seem tame.." - Arizona Light "...In some ways she's becoming more masterful... Mother of the World, with its soaring piano solos, shrouded vocals, and soaring string accompaniments, is one of the most poignant melodic moments in Demby's repertoire. The whole thing is assembled with such freshness, skill and expressive validity that it's hard to resist." - CD Review

"I love Constance Demby's music. She is fantastic. There are things she can do with her music and sounds she can conjure up that will evoke images and emotions like none other. This was the first album of hers that I was introduced to, and my personal favorite for sentimental reasons: It's so hard to pick a favorite out of hers because they are all so good! Be prepared to go from inner spce to outer space with this magnificent album. There are tracks on here where you can literally feel the longing... you WILL cry. It is impossible not to reflect back on your own life with this music. Rarely have I encountered such heart felt music that evokes so much feeling and imagination. This is an album that you will be tempted to listen to every day, and you have to be careful not to overdo it. It would be cliche for me to say this will change your life, and probably melodramatic, but I gurantee, it'll hit you right in the heart. This is the kind of thing you give to family and friends... what a treasure!"
The most important new age recording...EVER !

"I'm a huge aficionado of contemorary instrumental music even though it seems there is so little of it that I feel really speaks to me. The music of SET FREE speaks to me, and in a very, very big way. Of all the 1000's of CD's I have listened to, this one ranks NUMBER ONE. Constance Demby is definitely one of the best of this genre, although I feel that most of her career has unfortunately been spent on music that is too...um...ambient for me. This CD demonstrates the sheer virtuosity Demby is capable of performing if she ever chose to make her music just a little more mainstream. The CD ends with several of those "ambient" tracks that I was referring to, (which are terrific if you like that kind of music) but what I would otherwise say is to let the first seven or eight tracks stand on their own. This is the closest I've ever heard synthesizer music sounding so classical and timeless in style. This CD is a magical, spiritual masterpiece!"

"I listened to Set Free for the first time in complete darkness after midnight on a Friday night. When the C.D. was over, I could not physically move--I was pinned to the floor and my spirit seemed to be in communion with "All That Is.""
