I have reviewed a few of your tracks from "Liminality" and would like  to add the entire CD to my playlists.  Very nice and soothing music  that I feel will fit in perfectly with the "soothing sounds for the  soul" on ARIES' ERA.  At this time, ARIES' ERA is rated #28 in the New  Age genre on live365 out of over 600 other New Age broadcasters. It is by continuing to air such wonderful music as yours that has allowed to hit an all time record rating. "D"

“I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT!  love love love it.  With every track, I was thinking "this is my favorite one so far" and the next one was just as brilliant.  I think all in all, my most favorite piece is Claudanza, it was so exciting and I was almost breathless waiting to hear what would  happen next.  My second favorite piece was the Ballad of the Peaceful  Warrior.  And of course, the title track, Liminality, it was  overwhelmingly peaceful and kind and exhuberant and brilliant.  Lullaby for Anais was completely wonderful. Oh i just love them all." JM


“ Liminality is truly a creative musical experience that any serious  music - lover would appreciate and I am proud to be a featured musician on this CD...It soars into the heights of music splendor.  Here’s what  comes to my mind after listening to the entire CD...PEACEFULNESS, INSPIRATION, SPIRITUALITY, LOVE, NATURE AND HOPE.”  Angel Short and AC
