ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
...breathtaking in its elegant mystical atmosphere.

~ Steve Roach

Stunningly beautiful and otherworldly aural nebulae, created almost entirely from human voices, recorded in a huge, empty water tower... create a heavenly chorus of voices, soaring from ecstasy to torment.
~ Mike Griffin, Hypnos

Every now and then a little known album will crawl out from underneath more famous artists and scream for attention. This CD is Coalescence by Jim Cole and Spectral Voices,...amazing improvised compositions by voice alone. This is one heck of an ethereal album.

~ Allan Bogle (WEVL Memphis), "The Ambient Spectrum," NAV

...one of the best debut releases of this year.

~ Steve Davis, "Neptune Currents" (KKUP), Associate Producer "Hearts of Space"

Forget everything you have ever thought or heard or read about vocal music. Jim Cole and Spectral Voices have created something on Coalescence with voices and reverb that transcends the limitations of imagination. They literally redefine the concept of voice as instrument.

This is music that touches something primal. I cannot remember being so moved by a recording as I am by this. It is a singular listening experience and absolutely not to be missed by anyone who sees music (and especially the human voice) as a vehicle for expressing something beyond the here and now. A truly transcendental experience.

~ Bill Binkelman, Editor/Publisher of Wind and Wire

Jim Cole and Alan Dow...have produced a decidedly original and fascinating album. Coalescence is unique in both its conception and execution....The outcome is a highly spiritual, mystical ambience; [it] communicates center and peace when absorbed carefully.

~ Jeff Johansen (WJCU) New Age Voice

Their ambient, spiritual music really sounds as though it came from a wealth of electronic and acoustic instruments. Highly recommended for those who wish to touch the most mysterious and meditative spaces through music.
~ Eric Meece, "Mystic Music" (KKUP)

Prepare to be carried away by reverent, crystal clear harmonic overtones...Transport yourself to a sacred and refreshing place with Coalescence, an album that will touch you deep inside.
~ Forest, "Musical Starstreams"

...one of the best of '98 -- right up there with the Harmonic Choir's Hearing Solar Winds and Dempster/Oliveros' Deep Listening.
~ A Produce

A very original and creative concept. What an ambient delight! Coalescence is a thinking person's dream: intellectual and psychological sustenance. The world needs soothing, thought-inducing music such as this.

~ Brad Torgersen, "Empyrean Radio" (KSVR)

...a powerful composition of voices that leaves me spellbound.
~ Jessica Ables, New Age Music Director (WFHC)

... has definitely got a mystic quality of its own and takes you to another dimension.

~ Vladimir Jovanovic, "Inner Space" (Zagreb, Croatia)

Coalescence is unique, sublime, extraordinary and beautiful....The angelic, dream-like presence captured by this recording makes listening to Coalescence an experience that relaxes the mind and body, as it feeds the imagination.
~ M. Jeffrey Schmidt, Massage Magazine
