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.

If I could only own one CD, this would be the one.

"I discovered Music from the Pleiades while working at a New Age store in the early 1990s. We usually listened to tapes once through before putting in the next one, but this music tended to stay in the tape deck for the rest of the day, because it was so beautiful, pleasant and soothing. We wore out two cassette tapes before switching to CDs and sold out every time we had it in stock.
Since then, I've continued to listen to Music from the Pleiades for sleep, meditation, creativity and as background music. It's as fresh the thousandth time I listen to it as it was the first.

"Truly a magnificent CD. A wonderful piece of music to relax with and/or meditate. I leave my worries and cares behind me when I listen to it. Mr. Markoe was a true genius of music and composing...sadly he has passed on, but his music lives and lives.......I plan on purchasing all of his CD's eventually! You will love this album and another titled "Music of the Angels" I highly recommend both!"
