Sea & Silence
Eternity Of The Present Moment
This organic duet celebrates the stillness of the present moment with a masterful layering of magical flute, dreamy keyboard chimes, hints of piano, and natural ocean waves.  The net effect is a peaceful intertwining of melodies in which the waves themselves provide not only a tonic backdrop, but actually function as musical instruments.

“I have always loved the musicality of the waves of the ocean,” says Deuter.  “Unlike a musical composition, which has a beginning and an end, waves play their music in a tireless fashion, not going anywhere, not reaching towards some goal, but singing about the eternity of the present moment.  Waves reveal their music only to listeners who allow themselves to sink deeper into the sounds.”

Totally unpredictable in its creative flow, this music pleases that part of the soul that doesn’t necessarily want to know where things are going.  In the words of the artist, “There is a place within us where there are no more goals to reach, no more roads to travel, no more maps to follow, no more philosophies to create, no more strategies to construct.” 

The music on this CD touches that place like a feather, caressing and nurturing.

Sea & Silence
Melodies Of The Waves
Clearly, Sea & Silence is a breakthrough for Deuter, in that subject and music are unitive and in the final sound, totally intertwined.  Music using ocean waves is now a cliché in New Age discography.  The genius of Deuter has been not only to incorporate the sounds of the ocean into the music, but to allow the waves to become music in themselves.  Or perhaps it would be more accurate to say, Deuter has allowed the waves to express their own inherent musicality.

Deuter enables the listener to recognize through his music that there is nothing really separating us from the ocean, that land and sea is another dualism we must spiritually overcome.  Because his music integrates the sea so profoundly, even on listening to the first track memories of past encounters with the sea flood back into consciousness, as if one were once again a child playing on the beach and transfixed by the waves.

By the time the last track, Empty Shore, concludes the music has transported us back to our primordial roots, a clarion summons to our first ancestor who originated in the sea.  Piano is used imaginatively to inhabit the space between the waves and Deuter's hallmark flutes, often overdubbed, take on cathedral like tones, as they soar to the heavens.

The cover art shows the ocean merging with the sky, which mirrors the almost spiritual like transparency which occurs in this dreamy synthesizer music.  We have reached the other side and it is Deuter's music, ending with an angelic chorus, that has been our vehicle of transformation.  After listening to Deuter, perhaps we can now see the sea in its crystalline, original innocence. We are given an almost birdlike view, as we witness the waves receding revealing the luminosity of the ocean and only the melodies lingering in our collective unconscious.  For Deuter, silence has its own chords and through his CD, Sea & Silence, the stillness of the present moment has never sounded more clearer or more harmonious.
