Synopsis

Album Description
Music for star gazers, planetariums and meditation. The Pleiades are a beautiful and brilliant cluster of stars in the constellation of Taurus. I have a large picture of them in my recording studio, and sometimes when I look at this picture, I am inspired to compose music, which is very different from anything I have ever composed or heard before. This album is a collection of these pieces. The Pleiades are the subject of many ancient legends. For example, the Torajas, a primitive tribe in Indonesia, build saucer shaped temples in remembrance of their ancestors who "came here from the Pleiades in saucer shaped ships a very long time ago." In numerous reports of extraterrestrial encounters from different parts of the world the space beings indicate the Pleiades as their place of origin. For some reason many people feel a strong connection with the Pleiades. Perhaps, as the legends say, we are descendants of Pleiadian cosmonauts who settled here aeons ago before the dawn of history. I don't claim to know this for sure, but I do know that I love the Pleiades and that my "contact" with them through the picture in my studio, seeing them in the sky, and reading ancient legends about them, inspired this album.

CD Reviews

Music of the truest serenity...Even more than I ever thought
Dina Zoubi | 05/12/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Working as a clerk in the Crystallirium ( Metaphysical supply store ), my manger Donnette adored this tape enough to have it in at all times practically. The sounds lull you into reverie and is more than perfect for meditations or ritual, a new age title worthy of my highest respect. As a sceptic I'm very edgy on buying any music online but if ever you'd trust another this is the time to do it. Sweet sounds, hypnotic instrumentals and talent at it's highest is what this title is."
Heavenly!

(5 out of 5 stars)

"I love this music! It actually evokes a homesick, yearning feel within me, but then we are all starchildren, aren't we? It soothes my spirit and allows escape from the earthly plane for a period of time....can't think of any other music that touches me so deeply. My favorite!"
Magnificent Flute, Harp, Synthesizers
Erika Borsos | Gulf Coast of FL, USA | 06/28/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Beginning with other worldly. ethereal, calm, peaceful music ... essentially the whole CD consists of original soothing and relaxing sounds. Starting with synthesziers, the music is highly evocative, occasionaly creating a human-like humming, with chimes bursting the reverie. The initial melody weaves into other natural and lovely sounds. On the harp and flutes, Gerald Jay Markoe takes the listener on a cultural journey, first to the indiginous flute music of the Incas which melts into Orient flavoured magnificent delicate floral arrangements. This music flows and winds with awesome splendor taking us back to the Ocean of life, connecting us to an infinite harmonic unity. I first heard this music in the early to mid-1990s during meditation class sessions and have loved it ever since. Erika Borsos (erikab93)"
