ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The songs of FloatOvations™ were composed to accompany the listener on a journey to the inner self. Its meditative tunes are a mixture of water sounds like ocean waves or rain drops combined with acoustic guitar arpeggios, lush orchestral elements and tribal percussion.
Soothing Maori vocals in the title-track The Realm of Levitation add a flavour of Aotearoa – the land of the long cloud (New Zealand).

Jo Blankenburg is a composer and pianist from Germany now living in New Zealand. Although his compositions cover a wide spectrum of genres, his main emphasis is film music. The interaction between acoustic and visual elements is the inspiring source for Jo.
While in film scoring the images and pictures of a movie initiate the flow of ideas for dramaturgic compositions, with FloatOvations™ Jo’s intention is to evoke visualizations in the mind of the listener. For a taste of his piano works, film music, world music and selection of electronica visit his website:

Floatovations
It's the music that brings calm in me immediately. It came to me at the right time and I'm grateful, thank you!

Quality of Sound?
Don't know if it is CDBaby, or your recording, but in listening to preview tracks, Below the Surface (Track 2) was barely in the 2 minute preview, so I hesitate to buy an albumn that I can't hear. There is a geat variance in volume between the tracks, so I had to turn volume up and down to compensate for the differences in volume.

Perhaps the perfection of a relaxation/meditation CD is one that leaves you with very little to say at all; one that stills the mind so completely and smoothes over every rough spot in your psyche so thoroughly that you are cast into the role of receiver alone. Jo Blankenburg’s album, Floatovations, is the aural equivalent of drifting on the open ocean (a Caribbean one for certain) with only the lulling sounds of nature to fill your head, replacing the hum and buzz of the outside world. With a watery, liquid theme, this album easily surpasses most relaxation CDs in focusing in on lush and full atmospheres, somewhat akin to a film soundtrack but using simple textures and structures with natural ebb and flow. As a whole, the album narrows in on the quality of levitation and buoyancy, and much like the title, floats the soul along on a sound journey of soft keyboards, strings, ocean waves and birds, joined by guitar, pan flutes, didgeridoo and several other colors along the way. For those seeking deep rest, meditation, general relaxation or just a way to decompress on the way home from work, you’d be hard-pressed to find a more appropriate selection of compositions.
