About this album

G A L A X I E S
“…one of the finest musicians on the New Age music scene today.”
Los Angeles synthesist Kevin Braheny is regarded by many serious listeners as one of the finest musicians on the New Age music scene today. His improvised Lullaby for the Hearts of Space (1980) and his pre-composed The Way Home (formerly entitled Perelandra; 1984) stand as contemporary New Age classics. His latest effort, “Galaxies” features music Braheny composed for the “Galaxies” planetarium show, written and directed by author Timothy Ferris.

Galaxies includes 16 relatively brief synthesizer and electronic woodwind pieces, and showcases a satisfying and nourishing variety of styles, moods, timbres, and tempos. Some of the themes dazzle the ears and inner eyes, leaping into our imagination like starfire fanfares. Others, especially on side two, suggest infinite, beauteous space and heavenly choirs, radiant in their timeless serenity. Throughout Galaxies, Braheny has composed his music with subtle intricacy and a fine ear for sensual and enchanting textural variety. Excellent.
