The forever music of new angels
“In keeping with his promise we are looking forward to a new heaven and a new earth, the home of righteousness” (2 Peter 3:13). As a teenager, I was delighted to discover the music of Jean-Michele Jarre, Tangerine Dream and Terry Riley, among others. The impact of these composers’ revolutionary skill with synthesizers and other technology has always stayed with me. This collection of ambient music is dedicated to Terry Riley whose own works – e.g. A Rainbow In Curved Air, Sri Camel and The Ten Voices Of The Two Prophets – have given me many hours of deep listening fascination. At the time of making The Forever Music Of New Angels, I was thinking about the demise of the present earth and the loss of many human souls (‘Requiem’), and the appearing of a new heaven and a new earth (see above). Biblically, only “a few” will be saved (Matthew 7:14) and the heavens and the earth are indeed being “reserved for fire” (2 Peter 3:7).
