"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
"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
"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
"Live in Tokyo begins with an ancient, eastern serenity found in mystical locales such as snow-capped mountain tops surrounded by breaking clouds at golden twilight, or the mist-laden hills of a vibrant bamboo forest, or the lush and elaborate gardens of a hidden monastery nestled in cherry blossoms.
As always Demby's music, she brings that timeless quality into existence. She has created a rich, plush, acoustic fabric of interwoven sonic ecstasy accentuated with Eastern elements. This is the music of healing, of energetic contemplation, of emerging and expanding sonic vistas of the deepest and truest emotions of the human condition and its essential exploration. Because of the superb quality of the recording, I feel like I'm transported to that very concert each time it plays. A MUST HAVE for any fan of new age and/or space music. So, close your eyes and picture yourself in one of those mystical locations when you hear the music and feel it enhance your spirit. Constance Demby is a treasure, and her music is a gift to the world."
"Live in Tokyo" is both a CD and a DVD.
The combination of high-level studio production, excellent sound quality, Demby's inspired music, and exquisitely crafted Japanese artistry, make this a rare and 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. The special effects, close-up shots of the artist in action, the stunning visuals, Demby's inspired music, and the sublime Japanese artistry, all combine to make this a classic work of art.
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.
