Seventh Wave CD by Nigel Shaw
The Seventh Wave evokes the ever-changing colours of the timeless and powerful ocean. Based upon recordings from the Atlantic coast of Southwest England and overlaid with inspired, improvised music, this album creates a gentle yet moving landscape of sound.
The Seventh Wave is comprised of two 24-minute pieces:
Light - featuring seagulls, bells, flute, strings and classical guitar, is clear, bright and uplifting.
Deep - featuring whale-song, pipes and synthesizers, is more hypnotic, creating images of the depths of the ocean.
Total album duration 48 minutes.
