ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Michael Stearns is a master in creating atmospheres. Sometimes dark and mysterious, sometimes wordly, sometimes cosmic and floating. In that case, "Floating Whispers" is an excellent chosen title because this is one of the more quiet albums by the American with gentle, intelligent and beautiful shaped soundscapes. Originally released by Sonic Atmospheres in 1987 but no longer available, Groove Unlimited now brings a remaster of this classic and with a new sleeve. It was the first Stearns-record which came to my attention and I've been a fan of his work ever since. The album opens with Brian Eno-like guitarparts which flow into a great filmish tune, "Spanish Twilight". "Portraits", is an adaption of his 1985 masterwork "Chronos". The best track is "At The Bath": birdsounds form the introduction for really relaxing music which is very quiet (try to record this: you'll have to turn the recording-slide almost to maximum). Good stuff. The second part of the album is more dramatic with the longer piece "Night Currents" and it ends with very strong, almost Vangelis-like, strings in the title-track. A intrigueing album by an extremely interesting artist.
