Bette Timm

Peter Kater has created another winner. His compositions, signature piano and keyboards harmoniously marry here with the instrumental support of Paul McCandless and vocals from Trisha Bowden. The result is an uplifting and supportive audio companion that comfortably guides you through the body’s seven chakras for rejuvenation. Take a listen and feel your daily stress wash away; it may also aid in coping with challenges of great magnitude, from illness to emotional trauma and the process of dying. Kater consistently delivers work that positively affects peoples lives. - Bette Timm

More ambient than melodic, and often very ethereal, it makes a soothing background for working, reading, relaxing, driving, and many other activities that can be made more enjoyable with unobtrusive music that evokes feelings of peace and calm. I also need to mention the striking cover artwork by Valerie McManus - gorgeous!
