"Deep interior tunings, extraordinary sounds, a symphonic poem of majesty and power. Beautiful complex sound....a ripping, echoing mineral bath of energizing sensations, calming yet stimulating....Good for guided meditation and to get the creative juices flowing." - Heartsong Review
"...SUNBORNE is a triumphant symphony of light and joy that has served as a valuable medium in my own awakening transformational , inner-healing process. It is truly divine!" - P. Anastasia
"Darkness of Space," a top airplay favorites of "Musical Starstreams" - Frank Forest's program.
An ambitious five-part tone-poem, inspired by the Emerald Tablets, (by Thoth / Hermes Trismegestus). Featuring the Sonic Steel instruments, world percussion, keyboards, hammer dulcimer, special effects and vocals.
"Recorded in 1980; Sunborne is a full-bodied, five-movement, symphonic tone-poem with lyrics from the "Emerald Tablets," an ancient text by Thoth - Hermes Trismegistus.
The recording evokes ancient primordial stirrings and heady futuristic space voyages, watery depths and exploding rays of light. The title cut swirls and blips with inner electronic space galaxies powered by a driving percussion and Demby's centered, hypnotic voice. "One with the Light" begins with the breathtaking and resonant Chinese cheng which is then joined by the plaintive cries of the Whale Sail. Its voyage through the empty, echoing void is heartbreaking until Demby's eternal voice encourages its return to the light. Sunborne is both a feast for the ears and an incredible vibrational voyage for the soul. "-- AMG
"....Your music helps to save me from myself. "Darkness of Space" ranks in depth, spiritual quality and sheer beauty with Bach, Mahler and Pachebel's Cannon. " - P. Winston
".......I am a nurse and work in a nursing home. I have used Sunborne to quiet and soothe several of my brain-damaged, non-verbal patients. " - A. Dobyzelecki .
"Darkness of Space"
from the Emerald Tablets
Darkness fills all the space.
Shine forth Oh Light of the Man Soul,
Fill thou the darkness of space,
The darkness of space.
Shadows of darkness surround thee,
Life fills thee with it's flow.
But know, Oh Man, thou must arise,
And forth from thy body go.
Far to the planes that surround thee,
And yet are one with thee too.
One with thee too.
Look all around thee, look all around thee.
Oh Man , see thine own light reflected,
Even in the darkness around thee,
Thine own Light pours forth through the veil.
Pours through the veil.
Thy Light, Oh Man, is the Great Light.
Shining through the shadow of flesh.
Free must thou rise from the darkness,
Before thou art one with the Light.
One with the Light.
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.
