e also own the Flamingo Sound Recording Studio, in which we have
produced some exciting new experimental music. It is this music which forms
the basis of our new lable, PACIFIC MOON, and which introduces the
sophisticated talents of our Asian artists to the international audience.
hroughout their history of four thousand years, the people of Asia have lived
as one with nature, believing that man is intertwined with the universe,
and that all that exists in the cosmos is here for a reason. In other words,
all is as it should be, and nothing is accidental. Through the centuries,
Asian cultures have maintained this expansive philosophy, embodying the
gentleness and strength to accept all things, and the mystical elements of
Eastern music have been nurtured by this rich historical background.
primary characteristic of Eastern music is the originality of the
instrumentation and of the musical scale. The sounds produced by traditional
instruments such as the koto, the niko, the shamisen, and the shakuhachi have
a rich and mysterious quality, and the melodies are therefore quite distinctive.
PACIFIC MOON RECORDS is proud to introduce a unique concept in New Age music
- a smooth blending of the ancient meditative sounds of the Orient, with the
universality of modern music of the West. The result is a true harmonizing of
the two, which will appeal to the tastes and sensibilities of people across the
world, and will engender a mood of tranquillity to all who listen.
