"Following in the footsteps of my previous album, Earthlight, I present here a further collection of landscapes for the imagination. In Sanskrit, 'jyoti' means light or flame. This album contains mainly sounds generated by my beloved Novation synthesizers with a touch of Emu, Kurzweil and Roland instruments here and there. All synthesizer programming is mine and no standard factory presets have been used -- no samples either. All sounds have generated by modulated oscillators or -- to quote the labeling on an Indian fruit drink pack -- 'no natural ingredients.' As with most of my compositions, I leave it to the listener to let the music create their own imagined landscapes; the track titles are suggestive only as a starting point for the mind to wander through the fabric of the music." -- David Parsons. "From his homeland in New Zealand, David Parsons travels frequently to Asia for spiritual and musical inspiration. After collecting musical samples and studying different musical and cultural traditions, Parsons returns to his studio to integrate these influences with his own experiences. In the process, he bridges disparate elements with seamless grace, and creates a unique musical affirmation of our common humanity and cultural endowment. Parsons' recordings make the Eastern sensibility comprehensible to the Western listener and formulate a unique and captivating new expression."
