Based near Manchester in the UK, Sounds That Soothe aim to produce music that is both relaxing and inspiring. Music that calms but that also keeps the listener interested. Beautiful and melodic sonic landscapes that give an escape into serenity. With further releases in production, Sounds That Soothe aim to expand the scope of New Age music.
'Silver Streams' is the first album release by new UK record label, Sounds That Soothe. Silver Streams has been written and produced by Martin Mayer, Director of the new company. Martin was inspired to write an instrumental soundtrack to one of his favourite parts of the World: the Peak District, England.
"I have always loved to visit the area. It is a great place to escape the stress and strain of modern life." explained Martin. "The Peak District is full of magical, serene places. For instance, the Derwent Valley is one of the most peaceful places I know. I feel privileged to live so close to all this beauty and I wanted to express this in my first release for Sounds That Soothe."
Silver Streams is a collection of melodic, orchestral movements developed to relieve stress and aid the body in relaxation. A musical journey through the English Countryside. The CD is augmented with original recordings of bird song and trickling streams. Each piece has been arranged to lead effortlessly into the next.
Silver Streams is available now on Audio Compact Disc at 'http://soundsthatsoothe.co.uk'. Here you can also download a free mp3 music download of "Highland Sunrise" from the album.
"...Silver Streams impressed me with its engineering and production (both of which are excellent) as well as the overall positive feeling that flows through the entire album..." Bill Binkelman, Wind & Wire
