Illumination is collection of delicately layered pieces featuring primarily plucked acoustic instruments and complex ambient sounds. The resulting soundscapes are imaginative, passionate, and thoughtful journeys in time. Moments of light and dark; of deep inhalation and exhalation; of love lost then found. This is Michelle Qureshi's second release on CD Baby, following her album Of Light. Both albums present a lush, gorgeous atmosphere for meditation, relaxation, yoga, and enjoyment.
The beautiful painting featured on the cover was created by Rebecca Ruegger.
