A Windham Hill Retrospective
Drawing largely from Patrick O'Hearn's early solo work (particularly Ancient Dreams and Between Two Worlds), this collection presents many of the finest compositions by the New Age/ambient multi-instrumentalist, whose resume features stints as a bassist with Frank Zappa and Missing Persons. Highlights of this atmospheric compilation include the exotic Life Along the River Vaal and the serene First Light, which show the influence of both world music and '80s New Wave.

“Patrick O'Hearn is an electronic musician exploring the more refined and elegant timbres of the synthesizer. His music is full of bright tones and majestic harmonies yet through the employ of earthy, ethnic rhythms and samples, he implants this music in firm soil - never soaring too far from terra firma.”
