Huntington Beach, CA (PressExposure) January 15, 2014 -- The music composers known as Lunar Ray have released their debut LP record album, titled, "Along the Red Pine Path." It is comprised of 10 original tracks for an approximate total listening time of 45 minutes. The album has been proudly and independently released without the aid of the corporate music industry, and is already being hailed as one of the most inventive and creative records of the new year.
"Along the Red Pine Path" by Lunar Ray is an entirely instrumental record composed of both digital and live instrumentation. It aims to describe in sonic terms a stroll through a natural environment.
Lunar Ray write of this, "The album is an attempt to communicate sounds and feelings found in nature. It is a walk down a path towards the relaxation found in each song's theme. Listeners can unwind to the scenery of sounds."
This musical "scenery" is indeed vivid enough to visualize without any effort on the part of the listener. The songs are intriguingly textured, tastefully layered, and written with a Tao-like flow that encourages calm, contentment and appreciation for the world's subtle and overt beauties.
Lunar Ray cite as main artistic influences only the Irish founder of "soothe" music, Enya. In "Along the Red Pine Path" many notable likenesses occur, though Lunar Ray's music is less synth-driven than the pizzicato-enamored Enya. Lunar Ray populates their sound with a broad variety of instruments for a warm, raw sound that could be reproduced live without the help of high technology.
The result is a polished, delicate wonder that is healing to the hearer and marvelous in nearly any listening circumstance. It's ten tracks loop excellently - the happy music fan will not notice the album's beginning again (perhaps for the third consecutive time).
"Along the Red Pine Path" by Lunar Ray is available online worldwide.
Fans of new-age and natural music should by all means get in early.
