New Age-Contemporary Classical Instrumental Review: Deuter-Komorebi Sunlight Through Trees

May 17, 2024/NewAgeMusicReviews.com

Deuter, a renowned new-age classical solo artist, has captivated audiences worldwide with his soothing sounds. With an impressive discography of 60 albums, his latest release, “Komorebi's Sunlight Through Trees,” is a testament to his unique style and musical prowess. 

"Komorebi" begins with a beautiful and rhythmic soundscape, getting you into the proper space physically, mentally, and, if you do "listen," spiritually.

Komorebi means "sunlight leaking through trees." The artwork, which is very basic but effectively portrayed, describes the beauty and wonder of rays of light dappling through overhead leaves and casting dancing shadows on the forest floor.

"Komorebi - The Walk" continues with that meaning and theme, going through several changes in the track during its 10:08 minutes. It starts with a violin, then the flute enters, and as the song progresses, the subtle electronic elements enter with synth sounds that are dreamy and ambient. Eventually, the acoustic piano arrives, which Deuter is a master at, as you realize early in listening to this album. His touch is brilliant and precise. Over 10 minutes is a lengthy song; however, it is just perfect and lovely.

"Enchanted Forest" also begins with a violin then straight into some orchestration from the synths. As you can see by the track titles the theme stays in place from beginning to end. Music can be enchanting and so can the forest with all its mystery and adventure. I remember taking long hikes as a young boy with my friends and looking up at all the trees and wondering what kind of creatures we may encounter. We never knew where we were going but always made it back home.

"Silent Glow" is a track that resonates with the inner spirit. It evokes a sense of glowing from the inside out, a feeling that can be immediately seen and felt. This inner glow is not limited to humans; it also emanates from plant life. The living plants and trees rooted in the forest form a vast underground ecosystem that communicates with each other. The composition weaves a tapestry of sounds, including soft wind and water, and if you listen closely, you can hear, see, and feel that silence. As Mozart said, "The music is not in the notes but in the silence between." This track embodies that sentiment, inviting the listener to delve into its meditative depths.

"Clairière" means clearing a piece of land of wood, etc., for cultivation. A clearing in the forest. The track is just as beautiful as the ones that preceded it, and it changed my viewpoint of the word cultivation and clearing. Cultivation is not necessarily something wrong; it can be healthy. There are gently ringing bells and whooshing synth sounds as it moves through the composition layers and, once again, a gorgeous flute that calls to you and asks you to come along.    

"Anemoi" in ancient Greek religion and myth, the Anemoi (Greek: Ἄνεμοι, "Winds") were wind gods who were each ascribed a cardinal direction from which their respective winds came and were each associated with various seasons and weather conditions. They were the progeny of the goddess of the dawn, Eos, and her husband, the god of the dusk, Astraeus (Wikipedia). Where the four winds blow as it were. The cello is particularly gentle yet prolific, and it captures the meaning of the wind blowing and doing whatever Mother Nature decided it should do at the moment. Once again, the synth underlies the main instrument, adding that ambient layer of pure relaxation.

"Anemoi -Touch" is just under one minute and is a sequel to the previous track, closing out the album with a brief but nice touch.

The softness and invitation of this music are its main attractions. It is a perfect choice for listeners seeking out relaxing and meditative music. Deuter's Komorebi Sunlight Through Trees is a testament to his ability to create music that soothes the soul and calms the mind. It is a musical journey that will leave you feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.

New Age Icon Deuter Releases A New Album Reflective of His Youth: Komorebi - Sunlight Through Trees

 

Light is, for me, a very positive, a very beautiful part of life…”

— Deuter

SANTA FE, NM, USA, May 17, 2024 /EINPresswire.com

Renowned new age instrumentalist and composer CG Deuter announces a new album titled Komorebi - Sunlight Through Trees, adding to his legacy as a pioneer of the New Age music movement. The album features seven original compositions of primarily classical new age instrumentals with electronic touches. The entire album is available digitally worldwide today, including Spotify, Pandora, Bandcamp, Amazon Music, iTunes and beyond.

Komorebi (pronounced Komo-Rebby) is Japanese for “sunlight filtering through the foliage” and is reflected in the album's cover art featuring a painting Deuter made in his youth, looking ahead on a summer forest path. Listeners can expect a calming and richly detailed experience with its meditative style complemented by piano, strings and wind instruments.

In an exclusive interview with Nicole Grabke, he says, “...Light is, for me, a very positive, a very beautiful part of life… I tried to create a feeling of light with my music because where I grew up for a few years was Germany after the war in ruins, and a very dark and depressed feeling.” Read the full interview with Deuter on Ambient Visions.

Komorebi has already been received well by music writers and critics alike. Music writer Robin James writes, “The entire listening experience is clarifying, refreshing and satisfying, like a walk in the woods.”

Deuter has been fascinated with the sounds of nature and musical instruments since his childhood in Germany. But it was after he suffered a near-fatal car crash, while working as a journalist, that he decided to pursue a music career. He began by traveling across Asia and studying Indian music for spiritual and creative inspiration. His first album, simply titled D, combined acoustic and electronic elements with ethnic instrumentalization and nature sounds, marking his emergence as a pioneer in the New Age music movement.

Deuter’s career has spanned over 40 years and 60 albums, contributing greatly to the New Age genre. His 2015 album, Illumination of the Heart, was voted among the top finalists for Album of the Year and Best Meditation/Relaxation Album by broadcasters and industry experts at Zone Music Reporter. Zone Music Reporter awarded him the Lifetime Achievement Award in 2016, recognizing him for his musical contributions.

Komorebi - Sunlight Through Trees is being released through Colorado-based label Curve Blue, and distributed worldwide by A Train Entertainment. For more information, visit https://cgdeuter.com/ and https://curveblue.com/.
