Bruce Kurnow: News

"Balance" recording released - May 11, 2011

Hi All:
I haven't posted for awhile, but a lot has been happening over the last year, including three Target Lifescapes stringed harp recordings. Most recently, I just released my first Guzheng (Chinese Harp) recording, titled "Balance." It is very relaxing and I enjoyed working on writing the music and producing it. You can hear sound samples and order it at my other website: www.peacefuljourneymusic.com
Thanks!
Bruce

"Peaceful Dreams" CD release - November 13, 2009

My new recording, "Peaceful Dreams," just came out on CD Baby today. It is a very different kind of recording because it is performed on the Virtual Pedal Harp. This unique instrument looks like a harp, but has no soundboard or sounds of its own. It is used as a controller to trigger synthesizer and sampler libraries of sounds. This is an extremely relaxing CD for meditation, massage, sleep therapy and spas. You can hear sound samples and order it by clicking on this link: http://cdbaby.com/cd/kurnow18 Thanks for checking it out!

Any of you who are familiar with guitarist Dean Magraw know what a great experience it is to hear anything he does. I really enjoyed working with him on this recording, which features acoustic and baritone acoustic guitars, stringed harp and harmonica. It was mixed by world-class engineer Jim Stern. Here is a link for more information and how to order it--thanks!

New Releases: "DreamSounds" and "Songs of Earth and Sky" - February 16, 2006

Hello again:
For the last couple months, I have been busy compiling material from previous releases and digitally remastering them. The first title is "DreamSounds," a double CD that features music from the previous titles "Quiet Movements" and "Dream Sounds." This compilation contains two hours of deep relaxation music--one hour of solo stringed harp and one hour of keyboard music. The second title is "Songs of Earth and Sky," which features music from the previous titles "Trail of the Wolf" and "Eagle's Call." This is the first time any of these recordings have been available on CD--they were cassette only when they were originally released. These recordings are available on CD Baby, where you can hear sound samples of every song (you can also hear samples of a few songs here on the website). To get from here to the sound samples at CD Baby, click on "Buy" and then under the blurb about each recording click on "Buy this CD at CD Baby." That will take you right to it on the CD Baby site.
