"Best Ambient Album of The Year" –Improvijazzation
“The aspect of Michael's music that impressed me most on his previous release, Siyotanka was his ability to touch the listener with the power needed to heal them... and this new release shows that talent at an even deeper level… Well crafted and full of spirit, DeMaria's music touches your mind through passages that (at times) feel like your brain is being massaged...This kind of music deserves your undivided attention…you should make sure you set aside the full hour for an uninterrupted listen - preferably with headphones on…MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.” –Improvijazzation
Ocean is the second in the Healing Sound Series. Michael in a recent interview said of Ocean “Composing this music served to heal and revive me from the devastating hurricane seasons of 2004 and 2005 where we lost our home. As a psychologist and musician I was interested in creating an ambient journey designed to help people deeply let go—including employing ultra-low bass sounds to help entrain brain waves towards deeper states of relaxation.”
Ocean takes the listener on a sonic adventure from the moving “Moonlit Sea” and the ethereal “Finding Forever” to the mysterious, “Diving Deep” and poignant “In Search of Home” that is at once a sonic massage and a healing journey of discovery. Using piano, keyboards, synthesizers, indigenous flutes, percussion and his own voice, Ocean is a journey into the inner depths of ambient music. As is the case with all his DeMaria’s albums, there is a story of one man’s journey through a sonic landscape - this time coalescing around the theme of the awesome and mysterious and healing power of the Ocean.
