"Live in Tokyo" is both a CD, a DVD, and an exquisitely crafted, hi-level Japanese production with excellent sound quality. The special effects, close-up shots of the artist in action, stunning visuals, Demby's inspired music, and sublime Japanese artistry, all combine to make this a classic work of art.
Captured during Demby's tour of Tokyo, the magic of this Summer Solstice concert was filmed by a ten-man camera team with multiple cameras (on the ceiling, on the keyboards, etc) in a grand hall filled with magnificent temples, sculptures and works of art.
(This DVD is in both NTSC and PAL format. Simply choose the appropriate side for your location, NTSC for USA and PAL for foreign.)
"Gorgeously expansive synths-based music...you'll hear the whole world of Constance Demby open up before you like no other recording before it." -Andy Garibaldi - Dead Earnest CD Reviews
"While there are many pretenders to the throne, listeners can be sure that the music of Constance Demby is the real thing. Few artists express the majesty and grandeur of the spiritual realms as eloquently as Constance on her numerous recordings. There are precious few concert DVDs CDs of this genre of music on the market, and even less filmed at this level of sophistication. Highly recommended." - M. Diamond, New Frontiers
"Warm analogue layers of string synths ... Deep resonating bass ... Layers of melodies that float and flow ... Demby's soaring, wordless chants ... An expansive choral quality that you hear in cathedrals as the music fills the air, creating the magical spells that can only be found in such places." - Dead Earnest CD Reviews
'Live in Tokyo" is Constance's best kept secret! I find it right in the same league with "Novus Magnificat" and "Set Free" which are my favorites (so far). It would be hard to find music that is more spiritually uplifting and transcendent.” - Brother David Landry
An internationally acclaimed, Grammy-nominated, award winning performing and recording artist, Constance Demby has been hailed as the 21st century’s Mozart / Bach / Beethoven, a tall order for anyone to be associated with, but in Constance’s case one founded on the most extraordinary musical and creative talent that is testimony to her prolific output and the profound healing both listeners and participants experience, alongside critical acclaim that has followed her every step of progress in a career spanning decades.
As a recording artist and pioneer in her field, Constance is an innovator of sound creations; sounds you'd swear you never heard before. Yet, somewhere in some dim memory, there is a faint memory echo - rich and compelling - calling up archetypal experiences which access the deeper, more profound levels of the mind-body-spirit. As one experiences the depths of the transmission, a dimensional shift occurs, allowing listeners to open, release and merge into states of expanded consciousness.
Her originally designed Sonic Steel Space Bass, a ten foot sheet of steel that produces deep, primoridal, resonant sounds, has been recorded by Lucas Skywalker Studios for use in their filmscores, and also filmed by Discovery Channel at Gaudi's Parc Guell for inclusion in a special entitled "The Power of Music."
A classically trained artist performing since the age of 12, Demby's music has been compared by critics to Bach, Mozart, Mendelssohn, Beethoven, Brahms, Palestrina, Rachmaninoff, Wagner, Puccini, Debussy, Ravel, Copland, Mahler, and Vivaldi. Her focus has included sculpture & painting, with one-woman shows in Greenwhich Village. Music, myth, art, and spirit merged in her SPACE MASS, a spectacular multi-media production combining painting, film, massive environmental sculptures, music, dance and ritual.
Demby is composer, performer, multi-instrumentalist, painter, sculptor, instrument designer, multi-media producer, and healer for our times. Dedicated to exploring the healing power of sound and it's ability to alter consciousness, Constance has received countless letters from those who, because of her music, experienced a major healing, a life shift, or even decided not to commit suicide. Healers and therapists worldwide use the albums in sessions to deepen and facilitate their work.
