NEW AGE: Space, ELECTRONIC: Chill out
Having overcome mysterious and searing pain in her ears, a decade of near sequestration from sound, and – most agonizing – the loss of music as her life’s blood, Minor’s debut album, “The Rousing” represents her musical and life’s rebirth, like a blind man miraculously regaining the gift of sight.
With its evocative and lingering melodies, The Rousing becomes a kind of journey. Though borne from a dark place, it is a journey of healing, where one’s innermost desires and truest self are gently roused, and areas of tension in one’s life are washed away like words written in sand. Upheld by subtle electronic textures and percussion, brooding yet uplifting, each piece becomes its own soundtrack, creating a vivid image in the mind of the listener.
This album is, at its core, about awakening... to self, second chances, to destiny. It is for anyone in search of space, soothing, beauty, escape, and most of all – hope. For no matter what circumstance you may find yourself in, this album is proof positive that miracles do happen, and reassurance that even the darkest of hours can transform themselves into light-filled possibility, if you but persevere. Go ahead, dare to arouse the possibility within you, and life, once again.
Perfect for massage, yoga, any kind of contemplative activity, "meditative" commuting/driving, chill out/relaxation. Experience an incredibly restful sleep with this playing softly while its imagery takes you away...
