Don Slepian: Sea of Bliss

Go back, go way back to . . . 1980! Yes that’s right, 1980. This is what I call extremely innovative, satisfying, cutting edge, ambient space music for 2001 and go figure — Slepian crafted this over two decades ago!

Three bliss-laden streams of synth textures, trickling crisp sounds, drones, bass echoes, mid range arpeggios, upper register washes, electronic palettes beyond the limit of words will completely wrap you in another world and transport your psyche into deepest contemplative netherworlds.

I discovered Slepian back in the LP, vinyl days, when CDs were slowly catching on and loved his marvelous synth works. So finally we have his very best all in one package! Hear Minimalism, Ambient, and New Age “frontier” trail-blazing work by Slepian done before all the genre buzz wordz even meant anything.

Highly, highly recommended!
