Nada Himalaya
Invitation To Silence
Powerfully meditative and a distinct departure would be the two apt descriptions for Deuter's new Nada Himalya.  While his past works, like Nirvana Road or Land of Enchantment were crafty blendings of guitars, recorders, lively percussion, and spacious flowing synths, you'll find none of those instruments here. 

Instead, gentle sounds of Tibetan bells and bowls, chimes and the sounds of mountain streams float like white clouds in the Himalayas. These sound vibrations can literally change the environment, inviting silence from the inside.  A timeless space of harmonics and subtle vibrations await those who enter the here and now of these spiritual sounds, resonating from the heights and depths of simple breath and existence.

 - Lloyd Barde, Common Ground   March, 1998

Nada Himalaya
Music For Meditation
The CD was recorded using the natural sounds of Tibetan bells and bowls, chimes and the ambience of a mountain stream.  Listing only three tracks (the first being 30 minutes, the second 15), the sound envelopes the milieu, resonating within your consciousness.  The sound of the mild connection with the bowls echoes and drifts to the point of entering the realm of silence.

subtitle 'Music for Meditation' reveals ambient music at its very core and could appeal to those who enjoy today's ambient composers.  As Deuter strikes the bells, the echoes continue for at least ten seconds or more.  There is no melody or composition to speak of (though Deuter may disagree with me on a philosophical level).  Nada Himalya  breeds silence and generates infinite space.

Reiki - Hands Of Light
Hands of Light: A Sun Shower
Deuter is one of the masters of true new age music and there's no use arguing about it.  He's been around for a long time, making serene beautiful music for relaxation, reflection, and meditation for those of us lucky enough to appreciate his work.  He's practically an institution all by himself and he seldom (if ever) fails to deliver the goods.  So, reviewing one of his newer CDs (well, it was released in 1998) seems a bit silly.  After all, if you like new age music and music for relaxation, you're gonna love this and that's as close to a guarantee as anyone can give you these days.

Reiki - Hands of Light is made up of six pieces of new age/ambient music, each cut averaging about ten minutes in length.  The instrumentation is piano and synths.  The synths are used subtly, with effects such as synth chorus, synth strings, synth flute, plucked strings and similar sounds.  Deuter is one of the best in the business at avoiding schmaltz or overkill.  This recording is no exception.  The music on this disc is like a gentle sun shower - cascading ever so softly, never too harsh or too lush or too full.

This is not structured relaxation music, a la Kevin Kendle or Dean Evenson.  It's much more floating, hence my calling it new age/ambient.  And, while the songs on Reiki - Hands of Light flow naturally into one another, there is enough variation from cut to cut that from a musical standpoint, this is more interesting to listen to than a lot of new age music.  At times, I was reminded, from an emotional impact standpoint, of Chuck Wild (Liquid Mind).  This CD has that same sense of calm, deep peace via beautiful unhurried melodies.

As I stated in the opening paragraph, writing a critique about Deuter seems superfluous.  He's been making excellent music for relaxation for so long that I doubt he could produce a bad album if he wanted to.  Stating the obvious, this is highly recommended for people seeking a stress-reducing recording with nary a trace of darkness on it.  Reiki - Hands of Light is another in a long chain of recordings from a true artist in this field.

Tibet Nada Himalaya II
Jason Serinus
Why is this disc of Tibetan singing bowls different from any other disc of Tibetan bowls? Because it far more than a collection of pretty sounds. Any one of these seven compositions, ideal for meditation and massage, is capable of transporting you to another time and place. Tibetan bowls emit extraordinary harmonics and overtones when rubbed with a mallet. While they have been cast and used for centuries by monks as objects of meditation, it’s the consciousness that’s brought to their creation and playing that derermines in large part to what realms of higher consciousness they can transport the listener. In this case, that the player is Deuter makes all the difference, and the proof in the listening. Reserve time to sit quietly before or after a session, listening through a sound system fine enough to reproduce the otherworldly array of sounds that Deuter draws from these bells. Within minutes, the intelligence that infuses these sonic meditations will begin to affect you. Anxieties will melt, and you will sense the price that comes form connection with the divine. As long as you can massage and float simultaneously, your client will as well.

Tibet Nada Himalaya II
Timothy Burgin -
This sequel to Deuter’s first Tibetan singing bowl CD was intended to lead the listener into a deeper exploration of sacred sound and meditative states. These tracks contain the power, grace and beauty of the first CD, but were composed to be used individually for shorter meditations, as well as designed to flow together as one 78-minute piece. While the CD works great for meditation, it is even more powerful to use with shavasana (relaxation pose) and healing work. The highly resonate and harmonic Tibetan singing bowls are masterfully recorded and combined to enhance their natural soothing and stress relieving properties.

Koyasan, Reiki Sound Healing
"With Koyasan, Deuter continues to share his gifted musical genius. His unique blend of shakuhachi, koto, flutes and keyboards floats you gently to the inner core of your being where you rest fully in the presence of beautiful healing tones. This CD is an enhancing benefit to healing and meditation."

Koyasan, Reiki Sound Healing
"We have been playing Deuter's music now for over 22 years ... If music can take you to Nirvana, Deuter would be your conductor."

Koyasan, Reiki Sound Healing
HOPE ZVARA, Certified Yoga Teacher
"A divine grace, a feeling of freedom, a truly artful harmony. Let this conductive CD melt your heart and calm your mind; find yourself flowing to a place of complete peace and contentment."

Deuter is surely one of the most reliable new age artists out there. I doubt the guy could record a bad album if he tried. --Bill Binkelman, Wind and Wire
