CD Review – The Shimmering Land, by Meg Bowles

The title of preeminent new age composer and musician Meg Bowles' latest release is appropriate, as the album is full of shimmering sounds.
Bowles is known for grand, ethereal, otherworldly textures, commonly associated with the new age sub-genre of space music and all of which are in abundance here. All of the sounds on display are generated entirely by Bowles using her synthesizers.
Although the medium is electronic, the resultant music is very organic. This is due to Bowles' dynamic and expansive compositions, which contribute to the conjuring of cosmic vistas in the mind's eye of the listener.
If you're looking for quintessential new age music, this is it.
--Raj Manoharan
